Company Sees Double-Digit Growth in Brand Favorability
ICF (NASDAQ:ICFI), a global consulting and technology services provider to commercial and government clients, has been named a “Fast Moving” brand by GBC, the premier research wing of the Government Executive Media Group (GEMG) in its 2017 Leading Brands in Government study, the company announced today. The company received the distinction of “Fast Moving” for its double-digit growth in brand favorability year-over-year among the over 3,700 federal, civilian, defense, state and local agency leaders surveyed.
“Among our readership of 1.2 million high-level government officials, ICF is gaining a strong reputation as a preferred contractor, demonstrating high levels of brand familiarity and favorability,” said Nicholas McClusky, Director of Research and Strategic Insights for GBC. “This year’s Leading Brands in Government study shows ICF has made great strides in improving its brand favorability within the community of government buyers.”
Now in its third year, Leading Brands in Government is Washington D.C.’s largest authoritative study on government buyers and their perceptions of top-performing contractors. Companies were judged by their overall brand favorability and familiarity, as well as key brand attributes including experience, expertise, value, customer services, trustworthiness, innovation and employee care. ICF is one of only 18 companies that received the “Fast Movers” distinction this year.
