Minneapolis-based LaBreche announced today that Oak Grove Capital has selected the agency as its communications partner.

“After researching several local and national firms, we selected LaBreche based on its collaborative and comprehensive approach.  LaBreche invested time understanding our business and key constituencies and, consequently, has become an important participant in our overall business strategy discussions,” said Brian Ranallo, chief operating officer of Oak Grove Capital.

“Oak Grove Capital is a category leader that recognizes the importance of building equity in its brand as it grows,” said Beth LaBreche, CEO of LaBreche. “We’re looking forward to helping Oak Grove Capital achieve its business goals through strategic national communications.”
