“Eve came to us at the right time with the right offer ... [her] expertise and position as a respected thought leader in the social media world was the perfect fit to represent our agency."
Dallas, TX (PRWEB) August 15, 2017
Addison-based digital marketing agency, Splash Media, acquired nearby Carrollton-based social media marketing agency, Social Media Delivered, in a recent closed-door transaction.
Splash Media was one of six local agencies invited to bid on a full buyout of Social Media Delivered. Despite entering near the end of the bidding process, the company quickly established itself as the leading option and closed the deal in a swift two-week negotiation period.
The acquisition encompasses all existing clientele and personnel of Social Media Delivered, including former CEO and notable public speaker, Eve Mayer, who will now serve as the CMO of Splash Media.
“Eve came to us at the right time with the right offer,” says John Dankovchik, owner and CEO of Splash Media. “We’ve been charting a new path for our agency this year with new leadership and aggressive growth goals. Eve’s expertise and position as a respected thought leader in the social media world was the perfect fit to represent our agency. Her personality match, impressive client roster, and talented team made this deal a no brainer.”
Mayer, who was seeking an agency to help expand service offerings beyond her current social media focus, echoed Dankovchik’s sentiment.
“After my first meeting with John, the decision made itself,” says Mayer. “I had reached a point where my clients continuously needed services beyond just social media. Splash Media provides the full suite of digital marketing services I was looking for, and the culture fit of the agency and its people sealed the deal.”
This acquisition adds a number of notable names to Splash Media’s client roster, including well-known retailers, a luxury travel advisory group, and a number of healthcare customers to add to Splash Media’s rapidly growing healthcare business unit.
Social Media Delivered’s operations will move fully into the Splash Media offices in Addison Circle, where Splash Media’s dedicated video production studio is also located. Mayer will lead the agency’s internal marketing and new business efforts in her new role as CMO by leveraging her background in the public speaking circuit as well as her notable reputation as one of Forbes’ most influential women in social media.
