AndMore Communications announces new client, Harvard Business Services

Soon to celebrate its 30 anniversary, the Lewes, Delaware-based company is the leading provider of business formation services in Delaware.  

Chairman Rick Bell formed Harvard Business Services, Inc. in 1981. His competitors were big and well established. But Rick conducted business with a philosophy that allowed Harvard not just to survive, but to thrive. Rick understands that beyond the mechanics of forming a business there are dreams and aspirations. A customer’s individual questions and concerns are important and special, and that’s how they are treated. 

Today, more than 60,000 business formations later, that same approach is still the signature of Harvard Business Services' culture and way of doing business: speed, efficiency, expertise and affordability, all delivered with the Rick Bell legacy of personal service.

AndMore Communications will be providing Harvard Business Services with strategic communications support in areas that include: branding, social media, public relations, advertising, and media relations.
