Finance/Accounting

Financial Management/Interim CFO

Client: Bankruptcy Attorney

When a large, specialized healthcare provider filed bankruptcy, the court-appointed attorney engaged with The Reds Group to help. As Interim CFO, The Reds Group is responsible for revenue cycle management, payroll, taxes, tax filing and reconciliation, 401(k), and tax preparation for CPA filing

Forensic Accounting: With potentially millions of dollars in un-filed and unpaid claims, The Reds Group researched data and records culled from three separate EMRs and produced documents for the DOJ, IRS and bank involved in bankruptcy.

Capital Underwriting

Client: Real Estate Private Equity Firm

A group of entrepreneurs needed an experienced real estate finance expert to create and manage its capital underwriting program. The Reds Group is responsible for project analysis, financial modeling, risk assessment, project narrative development, policy package development and recommendations to the Credit and Advisory committees. Recent projects include:

  • $75 million multi-family residential investment analysis for mezzanine financing of $12 million (Florida)

  • $80 million mixed use, MOB, retail, residential, hotel and parking for mezzanine financing of $10 million (New York)

Marketing: Higher Education

Strategic Marketing and Communication

Client: Major Research University

One of the many problems facing higher education today is the over-supply of PhDs for the number of positions in the academy, particularly in the arts and other non-technical fields. To encourage prospective Master's degree students to consider career paths outside of the academy, The Reds Group researched, conceptualized and are delivering a turnkey solution for a multi-year Professional Pathways for the Arts and Humanities  project.

 

Working with senior faculty members, recruitment specialists and administrators, we are creating an effective digital information and recruitment tool that helps students explore career options, salary statistics and the critical skills that employers are seeking in job prospects. We provide program-specific experiential learning opportunities that help develop those skills. The landing pages, infographics and examples are incorporated into the recruitment and yield campaigns. While the program is in its infancy, applications to several programs are already up. 

Content and Collateral Development

Client: Top 50 Business School

A Top 50 business school suffered with severely outdated websites and viewbooks, their primary marketing tools, for their signature Master's degree programs. No one in-house had the time or expertise to focus on this massive project. Working within the University’s Identity Standards and complex content management system, we provide overall project management.

 

In addition, we research, conceptualize, write and act as creative director for websites, landing pages and viewbooks. We work with department chairs, faculty members and administrators to ensure content and messaging is on target. 

To date, we have led the development of program websites (over 80 pages of content including copy, photography and graphics) and viewbooks that are now being used in the recruitment cycle.

B-to-B Marketing, Branding, Content Development
B-to-B Marketing, Content Development

Client: Medical Billing and Coding Firm

An established medical billing and coding company had a 10+ year-old website and outdated marketing materials. Working with the CEO, The Reds Group developed a b-to-b marketing strategy, repositioning the firm as a trusted expert and thought-leader in the industry. The rebranding project included positioning, the development of new content, a complete website redesign, collateral materials and an internal communication program.

The Reds Group researches and develops content that positions the CEO as an industry expert; manages the company's LinkedIn presence and advertising, and provides on-going analysis, management and support for marketing initiatives. The firm has experienced significant growth from cost-conscious positioning, brand enhancement and targeted marketing efforts.

Physician Online Reputation Management

Client: Multi-Specialty Physician Group

A large, multi-specialty physician group was expanding at break-neck speed via acquisition of independently owned practices. Popular online physician directories, social media and review sites oftentimes provide grossly out of date and incorrect information. Marketing dollars were being wasted because prospective patients could not find physicians' correct phone numbers or addresses online. While some online information is the responsibility of the practice, much of the information is “owned” by each individual physician (e.g., WebMD, Vitals, Healthgrades, etc.) and cannot be changed without verification.

The Reds Group helped identify and prioritize those physicians whose online reputation and contact information is critical for practice growth. We provided a complete online reputation assessment for a beta group of physicians, and we worked with physicians and administrators to develop an effective process. Finally, we created a scalable online reputation assessment and remediation program that could be implemented across the 600+ physician organization by the in-house communication team.
