Steve Chandler, owner of Chandlerthinks and the man tabbed to guide Henderson's new branding effort, will be the featured speaker at the next Coffee with Kyndle breakfast, set for 7:30 a.m. on Sept. 17 at Henderson Elks Lodge. The breakfast is sponsored by The Gleaner.
Chandler has been enlisted by a committee led by members of the board of directors of the Henderson County Tourism Commission for the rebranding initiative, identified in the recently completed Henderson Vision Plan as a community need. He is a career marketing man with two decades of experience in strategic planning and brand development for local, regional and national brands. His experience emphasis is connected to the hospitality industries and place marketing.
"We're excited to assist with the branding project by inviting Steve to speak to our stakeholders and the public about ways they can help the initiative and offer input," said Margaret Ridley, Kyndle's Vice President of Business Support. "How we present our community to the wider world and the message we send about ourselves with our brand is vitally important. I think Steve's message will be very interesting."
