Showcasing Innovation and Integrity

In their transition to a singular company, GAP sought the help of V2Works to create a new name and identity for their business, with the primary goal being to maintain its position as a premier global commercial aircraft leasing, financing, and management company.  In a rapid six-week sprint, V2Works worked hand-in-hand with the GAP team to determine a clear differentiator and branding strategy to help guide their internal principles and behaviors moving forward.

V2Works conducted mass amounts of research to better understand GAP’s target audience and market position.
