FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
FRANKLIN, VA – Monday, October 24, 2011 – Insercorp LTD, in celebration of its 4-year anniversary last month, hosted two events in Downtown Franklin earlier this month on Thursday, October 13. Insercorp LTD is a full service website design and development company based in Franklin, VA.
Founded in September 2007 as Bradshaw-Kimbrel Technology Group, LLC (BKTG), the new age technology firm established its headquarters originally at the Franklin Business Incubator. As the company outgrew its space in April 2009 it moved into its current location at 105 W 1st Avenue in downtown Franklin. In April 2010, the firm incorporated as Insercorp LTD after Tim Bradshaw, Founder & CEO, acquired the other half of BKTG. By the end of its fourth year in business, Insercorp LTD has grown to a team of three full time employees and four contractors.
Insercorp LTD celebrated its ongoing success in business by hosting clients, vendors, and local business owners in a private function held in the upstairs of Fred’s Restaurant in downtown Franklin. The event included heavy hors d'oeuvres, a social hour, and a presentation on the history and future direction of one of Hampton Roads’ leading website design and development firms.
“Without the support of our clients, vendors, and most importantly our community, we could not have achieved the success we have over the past four years,” said Mr. Bradshaw towards the end of the event.
The presentation also outlined Insercorp LTD’s participation in the local and regional communities over the past several years including sponsorships of We Be Jammin’ (Franklin’s annual summer concert series), Franklin Fall Festival, the Isle of Wight County Fair, the Franklin Community Business Expo (recently renamed to the Franklin Community Chamber Expo), AsiaFest (a regional event presented by the Asian Pacific American Heritage Organization), and more.
Since 2007, Insercorp LTD has completed over 120 website projects with a dozen more projects currently in development. Insercorp LTD is currently working on completion of a year-long project involving a web-based application system which includes management and tracking tools for teachers and parents of children with autism for a local Suffolk-based client, Step by Step Consulting, Inc., which operates a school for autism known as Rivers Bend Academy in Virginia Beach.
Under the leadership of Tim Bradshaw and his team, Insercorp LTD has continued to prove itself a frontrunner in the Website Industry in Hampton Roads. Mr. Bradshaw has been a featured speaker for local, regional, and statewide seminars on the topics of websites, new age marketing, social media, and business development. His speaking experience includes seminars for the Virginia Chamber of Commerce Executives Summit, Virginia Recreation & Parks Society Management Conference, Hampton Roads Chamber of Commerce Business Education Series, and local Lunch & Learn sessions for the Isle of Wight-Smithfield-Windsor Chamber of Commerce. Additionally Mr. Bradshaw is serving his fourth semester on the Advisory Board for the ECPI College of Technology Web Development program.
During the fourth year in business (2010-2011) Insercorp LTD became a SWaM vendor, achieving Minority-owned status and Small-business status through the Department of Minority Business Enterprises. Mr. Bradshaw, half-Korean, believes this classification will help in obtaining larger contracts to provide more jobs.
“The minority classification of our business will give us a better chance at winning state-wide and eventually Federal contracts when competing against larger firms,” Mr. Bradshaw stated.
Expansion of Insercorp Team and Capabilities
In 2011, Insercorp LTD expanded its team by bringing on Barrett Patterson, a Carrsville, VA native, as a full time Graphic Designer. Barrett had been with the team since its first year in early 2008 as a Client Account Manager and after completion of the company’s Intern Learning Program became the company’s lead designer after a year of working as a part time contractor. With a full time lead designer on staff, Insercorp LTD has been able to increase its graphic design capabilities to include comprehensive print and advertising campaign design services.
Further expansion included bringing on Nancy DeLeonardo as the company’s new Administrative Assistant in August 2011. Nancy brings several years of administrative experience working in corporate environments and a Degree in Operational Management to the team.
In September 2011, Insercorp LTD brought Stephen Hypes, a Franklin native, onboard as an IT Technician to expand into Information Technology (IT) services. With the launch of a new IT Division, the company plans to offer a complete range of IT services including computer repair, networking, maintenance, and consulting to the public and private sectors by the end of 2011.
Insercorp LTD Celebrates with the Community in 1st Annual Patio Party
As part of the four-year anniversary celebrations, following the business event in the upstairs of Fred’s Restaurant, the party moved to Fred’s Patio where Insercorp LTD sponsored a party for friends and family of Insercorp LTD, and anyone else in the community who happened to show up.
The party included free drinks, dancing, and entertainment by local DJ Tony Longoria. The company plans to continue this tradition each year to let the community share in the celebrations.
