Newburyport, Mass. –Matter Communications has announced the acquisition of ThinkMedia PARTNERS, a fast growing boutique communications firm with clients in a variety of industries, including high technology and financial services. Matter will maintain its focus on creating and executing results-oriented public and social media relations campaigns that are strategically aligned with and in support of clients’ business goals.
As a result of the acquisition, ThinkMedia founder Tim Hurley joins Matter as Executive Vice President and member of the firm’s senior staff. Matter also gains a number of additional public relations and social media professionals and several clients.
“This is a classic case of the whole being greater than the sum of its parts,” said Scott Signore, CEO of Matter. “All of our clients will benefit from this acquisition as our agency will have even more experience to bring to bear. It’s a very natural and positive step in Matter’s growth.”
Signore continued, “As I got to know the ThinkMedia team, I became convinced that this was not only the right thing to do, but that it’s a significant leap forward for all of us.”
The combined staff will work in Matter’s headquarters office in Newburyport. Other office locations include Providence, RI and New York City. Matter continues to grow its category experience and roster of clients while maintaining one of the highest employee and client-retention rates in the industry.
“As we looked to expand our capabilities, resources and reach for clients this year, the opportunity to join forces with Matter came together in such a positive way that we’ve felt great about rolling it out to our employees and clients,” said Hurley. “This acquisition brings tremendous synergy, scale and a common client service philosophy which we will apply to current and new clients.”
