2022 Communicator Awards Recognize MVP Sites for Investment Banking, Flexible Capital, Real Estate Finance and Technology-Enabled Services

By MVP Marketing + Design | August 8, 2022

Minneapolis, August 8, 2022 – MVP Marketing + Design, Inc., a Minneapolis Website Design Firm and Digital Agency serving clients regionally, nationally, and globally is pleased to announce that it has received Awards of Excellence on behalf of M&A firm Brentwood Capital, Junior Capital Provider Midwest Mezzanine Funds and Real Estate Investment Fund Mortar Group. It was also honored with an Award of Distinction for its B2B E-commerce website designed for Single-Source Technology Solutions Provider Teksetra.

Brentwood Capital Advisors

Based outside Nashville, Brentwood Capital Advisors provides world-class investment banking and M&A advisory to healthcare services, healthcare technology and business services companies. They approach every project and client uniquely, with guidance tailored to their specific needs. The premier independent investment bank sought a complete revamp of their earlier site. MVP created a one-of-a-kind design that matches the breadth and depth of their expertise with comprehensive information that is simple to access. MVP employed its trademark MVP TeamMate℠ website design and development  approach to create an easy to use and administer custom WordPress site that performs as elegantly as it looks.

Midwest Mezzanine Funds

Located in Chicago, Midwest Mezzanine Funds is a lower middle market junior capital provider focused on financing private equity acquisitions of businesses in the manufacturing, distribution and services sectors. Since its founding in 1992, Midwest Mezzanine Funds has provided over $1 billion of junior capital to more than 130 privately-owned, lower middle-market companies throughout the United States. Seeking to upscale its former, unwieldly website without incurring the added development time and expense of a custom-tailored site, MMF sought a creative and cost-effective alternative that could be implemented quickly and efficiently, especially in light of renewed demand for flexible capital as concerns about the pandemic began to wane. Based on recommendations from several other Chicagoland private equity firm partners, MMF tapped MVP and its TeamPlate℠ WordPress website as an ideal way to engage its audiences of private equity firms, independent sponsors, family offices and management teams.

Mortar Group Real Estate Investment Fund

From its Manhattan offices, Mortar Group Real Estate Investment Fund serves real estate investors seeking above average risk-adjusted returns. Mortar brings responsible real estate investment to New York City and the surrounding region by binding architecture, development and asset management into a single practice. With over $47 million in equity and $239 million in sales, Mortar has designed and built notable new multifamily residential buildings and private residences, and has also converted and renovated existing buildings in niche New York neighborhoods, including Brooklyn and Queens. Despite an abundance of many New York website design firms and digital agencies, Mortar tapped MVP for its award-winning, 22-year track record of private equity branding and website design projects. MVP utilized its proven BrandMate℠ process to position the firm against many other real estate investment trusts (REITs) and private real estate funds by creating the visual and verbal scaffolding necessary to communicating Mortar’s “almost-perfect” track record of real estate investment in “niche New York neighborhoods.”

Teksetra, formerly BLM Technologies, is a national provider of single source technology solutions serving financial institutions, governmental agencies, healthcare organizations, educational institutions, retail franchises, hospitality services—and more. BLM contacted MVP to help them reinvent their brand, rename their company, and generate new business through a bold new e-Commerce initiative in place of an earlier “call for quote” approach. MVP used a combination of its MVP BrandMate℠ (branding), MVP NameMate℠ (naming), and  MVP TeamMate℠ (website design to development) processes to create a holistic solution that gave new life to the organization’s mission: “To be the nationally trusted, single source, comprehensive business technology support, service, and hardware provider.”
