WHAT IS THE BETTY BRIGADE?
A personal assistance and concierge company based in Ann Arbor, Michigan, The Betty Brigade provides moving coordination, home staging, organizing, event planning, pet care, errands – virtually anything busy people need done but have no time to do themselves.
Having founded the company in 2003, owner and president Sharon McRill moved the growing company into a new office in 2011, doubling her former space. In 2010, sales were up 35%, and staff increased by three. In 2011, the growing company moved to a larger headquarters and added two more staff members, bringing the total to 12.
In the past year, McRill has established a communications department, a safety/OSHA-compliant division and a regular staff training regimen. Current personnel include professionals in organizing, home project management and staging. The Betty Brigade’s corporate and personal client list has grown, and plans are underway to franchise the business nationwide.
Laid off from a corporate marketing job in 2003, McRill turned joblessness into an opportunity in the midst of an ailing economy. As a busy professional herself, she’d fantasized about having a personal assistant. Thus was born the business concept, which grew into “My Gal Friday,” later renamed “The Betty Brigade.”
The Betty Brigade is an Ann Arbor-based personal assistance and concierge company. Founded in 2003 by owner and president Sharon McRill, the company specializes in organizing, moving coordination and event planning.
