D.C.-based LEVICK acquired the MACH 1 Group, which adds Austin, Texas, as the firm’s latest geographic expansion.
“Our growth strategy is being driven by how we innovate for what the marketplace wants now and into the near future,” said LEVICK President Mark Irion. “That’s what’s behind our vision of an integrated agency with advocacy and public affairs, crisis and litigation, and design and interactive marketing in the geographies that drive the economy. Texas is one of the hottest leaders in technology, healthcare and energy, so we need to be there.”
LEVICK’s Austin office is the latest geographical expansion and adds to the firm’s presence in Washington, New York, Chicago and Miami. LEVICK was named one of the 2015 Fast Movers by the Holmes Report earlier this year, based on a growth rate of more than 40 percent.
