Tenet Partners Launches 2019 Top 100 Most Powerful Brands Report and Innovation Rankings

New York, NY (June 27, 2019) – Tenet Partners today released its 2019 Top 100 Most Powerful Brands report, which ranks the strongest brands in tech, food, retail, automotive and financial services. Companies that land a spot on this list have captured high awareness and positive brand perception in the marketplace.

The data used to create the report is from our CoreBrand Corporate Brand Index — an objective, quantitative benchmark study validated by the Marketing Accountability Standards Board (MASB).

We use quantitative research from 10,000 consumers and business decision makers to measure brand awareness (Familiarity) and perception (Favorability) for each company in our index, which is then combined to calculate a company’s brand strength, or, as we call it, “BrandPower.” Objective measurements of these metrics often provide meaningful indicators of a company’s management effectiveness, and therefore financial performance.

“A common thread running through these companies is an unrelenting embrace of data. For many of the companies that are lagging, closing the data gap is a daunting prospect,” said Hampton Bridwell, CEO at Tenet Partners. “Big tech companies are accelerating the digital economy at a blinding pace, bringing levels of capital investment that are hard to match.”

Innovation plays a critical role in the strength of a company’s brand. This is important because companies need innovation to sustain competitive advantage and long-term performance. Therefore, a culture of innovation that permeates the organization is a key factor driving brand success and creating solid brand equity.

In 2017, we introduced a new component, asking survey respondents to judge companies based on what they perceived as a culture of innovation. This innovation metric was applied to 160 companies across all industries for which data exists going back to the beginning of the CoreBrand Index over 25 years ago.

“For innovation to be more than a buzzword, it must be supported and promoted by management and employees throughout a corporation’s culture,” said James Gregory, Chairman Emeritus at Tenet Partners. “This consistent Culture of Innovation (COI) can be seen in the ways a company puts a priority on advancing new ideas that will create value across all operations.”
