Rider Levett Bucknall Establishing authority


Over the years, Rider Levett Bucknall (RLB) had done some in-house public relations. However, the global firm had never engaged in any consistent and strategic outreach activities in North America, where it competes both regionally and nationally for cost consultancy and project management services—a market where there is fierce competition. To raise its visibility, the firm hired Hausman to position RLB as a major force in North America and highlight its unique value proposition in national and local markets.

To set RLB apart from its competitors and raise the profile of the firm throughout North America, Hausman LLC:

  1. Developed key messaging for particular market sectors including sports, healthcare, hospitality, and advisory services, differentiating the firm from its competition

  2. Collaborated with RLB’s president to produce a series of bylined articles for a high-level AEC publication, putting him directly in touch with his C-suite peers

  3. Drafted and distributed press releases, announcements, and other firm news to print, online, and broadcast outlets that got RLB into the news cycle and positioned its leaders as experts

  4. Edited RLB’s global website and conducted extensive research to incorporate search engine optimized (SEO) keywords that draw potential clients to the firm

  • Put RLB in top-tier publications—including The Wall Street Journal—reinforcing the firm as a leader in its field

  • Created a regular blog in a respected national AEC publication to showcase the firm’s knowledge

  • Expanded RLB’s presence in its multiple local markets

  • For the first time ever, developed a program of thought-leadership for its various experts
