With a new marketing chief, CT aims to refresh its brand this summer

Among residents surveyed for a new Connecticut marketing campaign scheduled to roll out this summer, nearly 70% agreed the state has a high quality of life, and nearly 77.6% see it as a great place to raise a family.

Those are solid scores, although state officials hope to raise them. The state’s perception fell sharply on the topic of business climate. Only 45% of 406 respondents agreed Connecticut is an “ideal place to start, grow or move a business.”

State officials plan to launch a $1 million advertising campaign this summer featuring a new statewide brand. It will retire the last vestiges of the “Still Revolutionary” campaign launched in 2012 under former Gov. Dannel P. Malloy.

Importantly, the digital-heavy campaign will aim to bolster not only outsiders’ perception of Connecticut, but also raise and leverage home-state pride. The campaign will be led by Anthony Anthony, Connecticut’s recently named chief marketing officer, a new state government position within the Department of Economic and Community Development (DECD).
