DRPG expands globally with two acquisitions
A Kidderminster headquartered communications agency has acquired two key companies: OWB in the UK and The Special Event Company in the USA.
DRPG said this move further solidifies its commitment to innovation and aims to reinforce its position as a leader in the global communication and creative industries.
Dale Parmenter, CEO of DRPG, said: "These acquisitions mark a pivotal moment for DRPG in both local and global expansion. We are excited to welcome OWB and TSEC to the DRPG family, and we believe their expertise will play a crucial role in advancing our capabilities and offering unparalleled value to our clients."
DRPG's acquisition of OWB, a marketing agency based in Birmingham, signifies a strengthening of its presence in the Midlands. With its studio complex in Worcestershire, DRPG wants to accelerate its growth in the West Midlands, particularly in Birmingham, following its sponsorship of the Birmingham 2022 Commonwealth Games.
Founder and Managing Director of OWB, Andy Wilkinson, said: "This is an exciting chapter for OWB. Joining forces with DRPG provides us with an incredible opportunity to expand our reach and capabilities. We are eager to contribute our creative energy and expertise, and we believe that together, we can accomplish remarkable things for our clients."
Across the Atlantic, DRPG also intends to boost its footprint in North America, after it acquired The Special Event Company, a live and virtual event planning agency based in Raleigh, North Carolina. DRPG North America and The Special Event Company will continue to operate as two separate trading companies but with plans for collaboration.
Hunter Gray, vice president of TSEC, said:"We are excited to join forces with DRPG, knowing that this collaboration will not only enhance our capabilities but also contribute to their ambitious growth plans. Together, we aim to set new standards in the creative communications and event planning landscape."
