Nashville, TN, April 05, 2017 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Brilliant Solutions of Nashville, Tennessee takes pride in forging lasting community ties. Director of Operations for the thriving marketing firm, Zach Kaplan vowed earlier this year to ‘make 2017 a year of community outreach’.
“The generation entering the work force is committed to leaving the world in a better state,” explains Kaplan. “If we can take our positive energy and devote it to youth organizations, military outreach programs, and awareness foundations, we will see positive changes throughout our community.”
The idea was quickly put into action in January as Zach began forging a partnership with the Boys & Girls Club. Brilliant Solutions team set a goal to teach the Boys and Girls Club attendees professional development skills with the help of Valor Unit Director Brittany Campagna.
Through their many visits, the associates and youth club members planned and executed games and tasks to teach the essentials of professional presence. The company even participated in a mock “Shark Tank” game where the children sold their own unique invention to the Brilliant Solutions associates, who were staged as aspiring investors.
Brittany says, “The game was so much fun! The kids had a blast and of course they learned so much from it. It is incredibly important that we create an education-rich environment for them here. Though they had a lot of fun with the Shark Tank game, they learned to put pen to paper, to map out their vision, and they learned to articulate their ideas.”
Brilliant Solutions also dedicated time on a separate venture to the Boys & Girls Club to teach important business etiquette skills such as eye contact, how to professionally shake hands and how to carry oneself in a positive way.
Again, Brittany expressed her admiration for the company stating, “These are not small tasks. These are the lessons the children will carry with them through out high school and into the early stages of the workforce. Having role models set the standard of professionalism early is something so often overlooked, and we are incredibly grateful for the partnership of Brilliant Solutions and what they have brought us.”
The feedback the management team received from both The Club and Brilliant associates, paved the way for a new requirement in an already successful mentorship program. Kaplan comments, “Community outreach is quickly becoming a cornerstone of Brilliant Solutions culture. We feel strongly about the positive impact this makes not only on our community, but also on our future leaders. If we continue to instill the importance of selflessness and helping the world around you, our leadership will only sharpen as a byproduct. In business, it’s not about you, it’s about the influence you make on the people around you.”

NASHVILLE, TN--(Marketwired - Apr 25, 2016) - As the city of Nashville enters spring, its fastest growing brand management and marketing firm flourishes. In order to keep up with their growing client base, throughout the winter months Director of Operations, Zach Kaplan was hard at work developing the next generation of Brilliant Solutions.
On February 24th, Dana Stewart, of Springfield, Tennessee, was promoted to Assistant Director at a Regional Conference in Atlanta, Georgia. Dana describes that moment as "a life-changing experience." He explains, "I have grown so much in the last eight months, both professionally and personally. Learning to manage multi-million dollar accounts, as well as learning the necessities of developing individuals into leaders has been irreplaceable."
Coaching and mentoring was no new feat for Dana as a rookie within the company. After graduating with his bachelor's degree in exercise science from Middle Tennessee State University, Dana became a strength coach at multiple local high schools. Soon after, he ultimately began his journey as an entrepreneur, opening his own personal training company.
As business began to soar, Dana sought further opportunities to grow professionally in a competitive and team oriented environment. As a former D1 athlete, his competitive nature worked to his advantage through the progressive training program. He describes the training that Brilliant Solutions offers as "second to none. It encompasses the corporate identity of the company in order to further production for our national clients. The training is structured so anyone with an entrepreneurial spirit, a great attitude and a student mentality can thrive within it."
The promotion to Assistant Director was just the beginning of the excitement for Dana and the Brilliant Solutions family. Moving into May, Dana and his wife are expecting the arrival of their two twin boys. "They are my motivation each and every day," he says. Looking to the future, he explains that staying focused in the next few months is vital for both the growth of his family and the organization.
NASHVILLE, TN, Oct 13, 2015 (Marketwired via COMTEX) -- It has been an incredible year of growth for one of the South's fastest growing marketing firms, Brilliant Solutions. The Nashville based firm continues to build a national footprint, while aligning their goals for the fourth quarter and the beginning of 2016.
Sales and marketing firm Brilliant Solutions is located in the heart of Metro Center, Nashville. Forbes and CNN Money named Nashville as one of the top 10 fastest growing cities in the nation in 2015 with 31,153 new residents just this year. The Tennessean boasts that Nashville is on track to become the nation's next $100 billion city. So, how has Brilliant Solutions taken advantage of this rapidly growing city thus far?
The first of the three-part surge in expansion this year took place in January. President Zach Kaplan aided in the expansion with Mr. Williams from Music City to Bowling Green Kentucky. Mr. Williams, a life long entrepreneur and ex-football star from Ball State University has tremendously benefited the clients in that region. In May of 2015, Zach facilitated a second expansion with Jordan Klochany. Mr. Klochany is an Auburn University Alumnus who took the sunshine state by storm in Tallahassee, Florida. According to Forbes, Tallahassee is also among the best cities in the nation for business and career growth. While preparing fourth quarter projections, Zach launched a third expansion with the help of Roger Guined. Roger, a former Kentucky Wesleyan basketball player, will be taking on a new client and furthering productivity in the Nashville area.
When asked about fourth quarter goals and the momentum thus far in 2015, Zach responded, "We have an unwavering management team in place, and their enthusiasm has sparked a winning mindset throughout the organization. This will launch us to new heights in the fourth quarter." With more growth brewing before January 2016 and whispers of an additional client on the horizon, Zach proclaims that this will be "the most prolific fourth quarter Brilliant Solutions has ever experienced."
Mr. Kaplan closes with, "It is a significant honor to mentor such an outstanding group of individuals." Humbled by the company's success, Zach states, "It feels like it was just yesterday when we began making a name for ourselves in Middle Tennessee. The privilege to step back and see how much our hard work has paid off in just over five years, is something that creates a culture that everyone from myself, to the new generation can appreciate."
NASHVILLE, TN, Mar 17, 2014 (Marketwired via COMTEX) -- 2014 has found many US companies still downsizing as they struggle to succeed against the pressures of today's economy, Brilliant Solutions, INC. has found a way to not only survive the wild of the business jungle, but instead to flourish into a triumphant business that shows no signs of impeded growth.
With unemployment still a prevalent battle so far in 2014, it is a wonder that Brilliant Solutions is continuing to grow at such a promising rate. With upcoming expansion into more retailers and a larger territory around the Washington D.C area, growth continues to boom from the Nashville based office located in the West End area.
The customer base for Brilliant Solutions has expanded from Business to Consumer efforts and even into popular retail and sports venues. In fact, their new Consumer Electronics Division has doubled in size in the last 10 months. This past year, Brilliant Solutions has also inked deals with Fortune 500 communication companies to launch new programs and continue their major expansion into more of the largest retailers in the country.
"It is my expectation that Brilliant Solutions will continue to grow as a dominant force throughout the Middle Tennessee region and beyond. My hopes in the upcoming years are to see Brilliant Solutions become not only the go-to standard for marketing, but also serve as a shining beacon for new industries of business to find success when times seem hard," says Zachary Kaplan, company President at Brilliant Solutions of Nashville.
Zachary Kaplan was asked how he thinks Brilliant Solutions has been able to grow despite the tough economy, and where he thinks the company is headed in the coming years. "I think there are two factors that have made it easy for us to grow. First, the downsizing of other companies with the economic crisis has turned into a perfect storm for us. Our large brand name clientele needed new business more than ever and this gave us the pick of the litter when hiring on new applicants for our Management Training Program. Second, the primary reason we are able to succeed is due to the fact that we bring buying power back into the hands of the retailers. With consumers bombarded with phone calls and thousands of pieces of mail daily, I knew it was time to reinvest in the power of brick and mortar retailers when most thought to get out, and that is exactly why Brilliant Solutions thrives." Kaplan expresses high hopes for the future by saying, "After we crush this year's first and second quarters, I expect the 2014 Holiday Season to produce the largest profits we have ever seen. The most important thing right now is to not let our foot off the gas."
With huge projections for the first and second quarter of this year, Kaplan has no doubt that this will be the biggest period for business to segue into 2015 with a powerful tailwind. "We will continually strive to be the best in class," says Kaplan, "because we can't rely on the past performance, and know the only way to succeed next year is to improve our overall drive and execution.
NASHVILLE, TN--(Marketwire - Mar 6, 2013) - Brilliant Solutions (http://www.brilliantsolutionstn.com) is a Nashville-based marketing firm that is benefiting from continued success with its established retail program. 2012 was a record-breaking year for Brilliant Solutions and 2013 looks like it will far surpass their projected growth. Since Brilliant Solutions' 2010 unveiling of its "In-Store Marketing" program, the company has expanded into at least six new markets across the country. In the first and second quarter of 2013, new partnerships, meetings, promotions and expansion are definitely on the horizon for Brilliant Solutions.
This week the company sent its management staff and top account managers to its annual quarterly meeting in Dallas. An intensive conference is scheduled to introduce new clients and partnerships as well as recognize the numerous accomplishments of the top performing offices. For Brilliant Solutions Director of Operations Zach Kaplan, the Dallas meeting is certain to have many proud moments. Zach said, "I have been to countless numbers of similar meetings and I still always find myself excited on the edge of my seat." The most recent expansion from Nashville involved Aaron Tygret, who expanded into Jackson, Mississippi. Aaron was a local collegiate athlete who received an opportunity to get into management in just six months. Zach said, "Seeing individuals like Aaron grow and prove themselves so quickly is what keeps me motivated everyday. Not only does he have a chance to represent some of the largest clients in the home entertainment industry, but also has a chance to earn an elite income, and continue helping us expand from another city. To see a young man get an opportunity like this in just six months is a very rewarding process. When I started Brilliant Solutions in the beginning of 2010, this was a feeling I dreamt of."
A mid-month meeting will not slow Brilliant Solutions' momentum. Despite the struggling economy, Brilliant Solutions is looking to open the second quarter of 2013 with new partnerships, and new expansions. Brilliant Solutions' goals in 2013 include five additional expansions from Nashville, and toping performance from previous years. Brilliant Solutions plans on growing throughout the entire state of Tennessee, and other markets nationally. Accomplishing these goals this year will give a present for Brilliant Solutions in eighteen cities across the country. Zach said, "We understand with growth, there is the challenge of improving relationships with retailers and our client base. As long as we can continue to surround our brands with great people, each year seems to be more prosperous."
Brilliant Solutions lives by a philosophy of loyalty to our people and results for our clients. Our success is built upon standards of only promoting from within, leading by example at all times, and working hard.
