A Texas-based architecture, engineering, and construction firm, O’Connnell Robertson was looking to more clearly define the scope and responsibilities of its marketing director role. The structure and responsibilities of O’Connell Robertson’s marketing department were not clearly documented or consistently implemented. The lack of clarity was causing uncertainty about roles and responsibilities for the marketing director, business development unit, and communications team members.  


Gladiator was able to achieve victory for O’Connell Robertson by creating and managing their strategic communications plan consisting of social media management, email campaigns, digital articles, press releases, and graphic design work. In addition to communication strategy, Gladiator provided services including:

  • Seamless integration with existing O’Connell Robertson team members
  • Definition of roles and responsibilities
  • Process accountability
  • Event coordination for industry conferences
  • Award submissions
  • Request for Qualifications strategy and quality control
  • Content creation (internal and external articles, brochures, flyers, graphics)



As a result of Gladiator fighting for O’Connell Robertson, a new Director of Marketing and Strategic Growth was hired with a clear understanding of what the role entails and the future direction of the organization. O’Connell Robertson experienced how effective marketing leadership can make a difference in their organization and was able to clearly define the skills that were required for candidates. The organization gained deeper insight into its internal processes and was able to be more consistent with its marketing efforts. Additionally, O’Connell Robertson’s perception of remote collaboration enabled them to broaden their search for candidates.
