NEW YORK (PRWEB) March 15, 2019
SevenBlue will have the combined capabilities of both agencies servicing clients looking for branding, creative, and experiential marketing services. Tim Earnhart, the founder and CEO of Werkshop Branding, will stay on to lead the newly consolidated agency as CEO and Chief Brand Architect. This acquisition is the second by Stadiumred since announcing its plans to grow its overall agency holdings to better serve its wide range of clients.
With this acquisition, Claude Zdanow, CEO of Stadiumred Group, continues his focus to find the best small-medium sized agencies in non-competitive service verticals to create what he calls “An Agency Collective.” Essentially, a group of agencies that have the benefits of centralized overhead and operational services, but the creative and cultural freedom to operate completely independently allowing clients to work with one agency or the whole group seamlessly.
"It has been incredible getting to know Tim and his team and learning from his 23+ years of experience in marketing, branding, and creative,” said Claude Zdanow, CEO, Stadiumred Group. “His wide understanding and deep strategic approach make it easy to have him step into our organization and lead SevenBlue, which will be one of the cornerstone agencies of our group.”
“Just by the nature of where branding and strategy typically sit in the marketing hierarchy, I knew we needed a real strategist at the helm of SevenBlue leading that charge,” said Zdanow. “I could not be more excited to see how Tim takes what he built at Werkshop, combined with what I built at Stadiumred Life, and moves it forward to serve our growing list of national clients.”
Through years of groundbreaking marketing and creative campaigns, Earnhart has built an impressive roster of clients including Auburn University, Cabela’s, FirstHoney, Morton’s Steakhouse, RJ Young, Aegis Sciences Corp, Joe’s Crab Shack, D1, Ripcord, Chuy’s, Pine Street Flats Nashville, Wendy’s Restaurants, and others. Both Werkshop and Stadiumred Life clients will continue to be served by the teams they have come to know, but they will now have access to Stadiumred Group’s network to leverage enhanced capabilities such as digital marketing and web development via Stadiumred Group’s other agency, Gyrosity Projects.
“The acquisition of Werkshop by Stadiumred Group was extremely fulfilling for me personally. From our humble beginnings almost 15 years ago, it has taken an amazing team of coworkers, partners, and clients over the years to achieve the combined success we’ve had,” said Tim Earnhart, CEO, Werkshop Branding. “I’m thankful to Claude and his vision to build something special and to make sure that Werkshop was a part of that vision and future.”
