This study investigates the effect of corporate brand dominance--that is, the visibility of a company's corporate brand in product communications--on the relationship between corporate associations and product evaluations. The results show that corporate brand dominance determines the degree to which associations with the company's corporate ability and corporate social responsibility influence product attitudes, as well as the nature of the moderating effects of fit and involvement.
