Badge Design and Scoppechio, both part of the OvareGroup, occupy the completely remodeled space at 1818 Race Street.
Jerry Preyss, Chief Executive Officer said that they are very excited about our new space in Cincinnati. The move to OTR was prompted by consistent growth and the opportunity to create a more compelling workspace for their staff. It also afforded them the opportunity to infuse a number of technology upgrades into the environment that facilitates faster, better work and improved collaboration across our network. He further added that, they believe in the vitality of urban creative centers like OTR to retain and attract talent. Across the OvareGroup, from Florida to Columbus and points in between, they have located in trending areas and established unique office designs that their employees and clients are drawn to. Their new space in Cincinnati currently employs 25 people, evenly split between Badge Design and Scoppechio. They plan is to hire additional talent in the months ahead and the presence of an office in OTR will facilitate that.
The Cincinnati office location is managed by VP Account Management, Scoppechio, Ashley Erk, and Steve Leder, Chief Creative Officer, Badge Design. Leder worked closely with Swope Design, who managed the Louisville location design in 2017.
The new office space has been unveiled to the public on Thursday, August 15 at an Open House event from 5 p.m. to 8 p.m. There was an official ribbon-cutting and proclamation at 4:30 p.m.
