For Andrea Dono, it’s all about connecting with the community. When you lead a successful downtown revitalization organization, it takes teamwork to lead efforts, create events, and promote the area.

Andrea shares insights learned from her time at the National Trust for Historic Preservation’s Main Street Center and how that experience shapes how she approaches her role as Executive Director of Harrisonburg Downtown Renaissance. She talks with us about showing off your brand’s personality, staying true to your mission, and how storytelling builds community.

This is Brand Story, a branding podcast that brings you hard-fought lessons learned from those on the front lines of brands.

Host Steve Gilman talks with business leaders, entrepreneurs, and marketing folks about their successes but also the challenges they’ve faced in their careers and how they’ve overcome them.
