Join us as Chad Paris, CEO of Parisleaf shares his story on the journey of his company Parisleaf and the lessons he learned along the way.
Chad Paris is the Principal & CEO of Gainesville’s leading branding and web agency, Parisleaf, specializing in branding and positioning for higher education, development, and municipalities. An award-winning entrepreneur, published author and accomplished motivational speaker, Chad focuses on relationship building in the workplace and with clients as a vehicle to drive greater organizational success through purpose and brand storytelling. Chad’s agency has received multiple awards from industry publications & federations and his past speaking engagements include TEDx, Georgia Tech IMPACT Series, and the UF Entrepreneurial Insights speaker series. Chad’s passions lie in giving back to the community and attributes his success to refusing to accept "business as usual".
Developing Parisleaf into the brand strategy & design agency it is today has been a winding path. At times, it’s been an unmanageable mess, but eventually, they honed in on their purpose - to help other organizations find their purpose, define it, and design it. Parisleaf sees this as the essence of the branding process, and one of the most effective ways to move the talent & revenue needles.
Finding their purpose took many iterations and pivots. Starting as a print & design studio, then adding web, onto video, and eventually evolving into the brand strategy and creative consultants they are today.
(Fun fact: Parisleaf’s legal name was "Parisleaf Paper, LLC” until this year and our most recent rebranding. Watch out, Dunder Mifflin!)
