M&A Advisory firm Clare Advisors (www.clareadvisors.com) is pleased to announce that it served as exclusive financial advisor to Barokas Communications (https://barokas.com), an award-winning tech-focused PR agency, in its sale to FINN Partners, a global, independent marketing and communications firm.
Based in Seattle, Washington and Denver, Colorado, Barokas Communications is one of the leading agencies that serves early stage, emerging and high growth technology companies across enterprise, B2B, and consumer tech. The agency was founded nearly 23 years ago and offers a full suite of public relations services that include messaging, communications strategy, media relations, and content.
Peter Finn, Founding Managing Partner and CEO of FINN Partners, says that “the addition of Barokas will especially enable us to expand our expertise with earlier stage companies, which has always been a high growth, high opportunity sector.” The acquisition of Barokas will also give companies in Seattle and Denver “a new option for a global powerhouse PR partner that can support brands across all stages of growth with fully integrated PR, marketing, digital and creative services,” says Karli Barokas, CEO of Barokas Communications.
“Clare is a highly trusted advisor that advocated for us through every stage of the acquisition process, and while we frequently advise clients on acquisitions from a communications perspective, managing the entire M&A process is an entirely different experience,” says Karli Barokas. “The Clare Advisors team brought deep industry expertise, guiding us from the initial conversation through closing. If you’re looking for a personal and customized experience, Clare Advisors should be your partner of choice.”
