Pa. digital marketing firm to relocate HQ to Danville
Kegerreis Outdoor Advertising subsidiary will invest $1.7M, create 62 jobs
Kegerreis Digital Marketing will move its headquarters from Pennsylvania to downtown Danville, creating 62 jobs, Virginia Gov. Ralph Northam announced Thursday.
The company provides integrated marketing services, such as brand development, billboards, online efforts and analytics for e-commerce retailers, digital startups, venture firms, and local and regional businesses. It is a subsidiary of Chambersburg, Pennsylvania-based Kegerreis Outdoor Advertising, the 10th-largest billboard company in the country, with 2,500 billboards in seven states along the East Coast, according to a news release.
Kegerreis will invest $1.7 million in the relocation. Virginia competed with Pennsylvania and North Carolina for the project.
The company will renovate a 7,000-square-foot former tobacco warehouse at 402 Cabell St. in Danville. Until the renovations are complete, Kegerreis will occupy space at the Dan River Business Center.
Northam approved a $160,500 grant from the Commonwealth’s Opportunity Fund to assist the city of Danville with the project. The Virginia Tobacco Region Revitalization Commission approved $91,000 from the Tobacco Region Opportunity Fund for the project.
Kegerreis Digital Marketing is eligible to receive state benefits from the Virginia Enterprise Zone Program, administered by the Virginia Department of Housing and Community Development. VEDP’s Virginia Jobs Investment Program will provide services to support employee recruitment and training activities.
