Greg Livings will remain with the company as principal owner and CEO, continuing to oversee the 45% growth that the company has achieved over the last three years.

“Bravo will continue to operate and deliver as it has since the beginning, with the innovative creativity, concierge-level customer service, competitive pricing and superior delivery efficiencies our clients have come to expect,” Livings said in a statement. “We couldn’t be more excited about our upcoming plans for Bravo’s future, which will further solidify its place as an industry leader in the awards and recognition category.”

There are so many wonderful people in the industry who have become like best friends to me.”
