National Media Reach: Nashville Spotlight

National Media Reach: Nashville Spotlight

The Wilbert Group’s tremendous growth over the last few years has enabled us to develop a national footprint in key media markets across the U.S. Atlanta will always be our home base as we enjoy strong connections and relationships with key journalists and decision makers throughout the Metro area, but not everyone is aware that our team is making a sizable splash in other markets.  

One prime example where the Wilbert flag is flying high is none other than “Music City.” It’s no secret that Nashville is one of the nation’s fastest-growing areas, attracting a continual flow of development dollars and Fortune 500 companies. A recent report from Stessa put Nashville at the top of the list for U.S. metro areas experiencing the most economic growth in 2021.

All of that activity means there are a lot of great stories to tell, and we’re grateful our clients have entrusted us to lead the charge with Nashville’s leading media outlets. Here’s a quick sampling of just some of the coverage we’ve been able to secure in the Music City over the last few months:

  • WKRN-TV recently spotlighted the story of Hoar Construction intern Michael Urban, a former U.S. Navy sailor who is literally taking his education hands on by helping to build the future $40 million School of Concrete and Construction Management at Middle Tennessee State University. Hoar was able to showcase how it is creatively recruiting and promoting growth opportunities to fill a growing labor shortage of young talent, with local NBC affiliate WSMV also covering the topping out ceremony of the impressive higher ed facility.
  •  How can cash-strapped buyers compete in a red-hot housing market? Nashville-based Churchill Mortgage continues to level the playing field through its unique personal finance formula that helps clients thread the needle and outmaneuver competing buyers with more resources. WKRN spoke with Churchill Sr. Loan Officer Kevin Watson on a four-point strategy buyers can implement to nab their next home.
  •  Bridge Investment Group seized the moment in the Nashville Business Journal by leveraging the recent sale of a top-performing office building to provide broader commentary on Nashville’s office market. Bridge’s proven blueprint for repositioning office properties once again played out in suburban Brentwood, with both the Business Journal and Nashville Post noting that the building was 100% leased at the time of the transaction.
  • CRE powerhouse and Wilbert client JLL is on the front lines of the recent movements and trends that will reshape Nashville’s office market in the years to come, with industry veterans Tom Hooper and Bo Tyler speaking to the Nashville Business Journal on what’s next. The firm’s quarterly office reports continue to be a top source for leading media outlets seeking real-time information on where the market is heading.
