Global communications agency DRPG is making significant strides in its expansion strategy with the successful acquisition of two key companies this month, OWB in the UK and The Special Event Company in the USA.
This move further solidifies DRPG‘s commitment to innovation and aims to reinforce its position as a leader in the global communication and creative industries.
Dale Parmenter, CEO of DRPG, expressed his enthusiasm, stating, “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 dynamic marketing agency based in Birmingham, signifies a strengthening of its presence in the Midlands. With its headquartered studio complex based in Worcestershire, DRPG is focused on accelerating its growth in the West Midlands, particularly in Birmingham, following its sponsorship of the Birmingham 2022 Commonwealth Games. OWB’s innovative approach to branding, design, and digital marketing aligns seamlessly with DRPG‘s mission to deliver impactful and transformative experiences for clients.
Founder and Managing Director of OWB, Andy Wilkinson, commented, “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 distinguished live and virtual event planning agency based in Raleigh, North Carolina. The Special Event Company’s 30-year legacy of producing award-winning events aligns with DRPG‘s track record of delivering exceptional live and virtual experiences for clients. DRPG North America and The Special Event Company will continue to operate as two separate trading companies but the plan for collaboration is clear.
Hunter Gray, vice president of TSEC, added, “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.”
