Public affairs-focused research firm Fors Marsh has acquired marketing agency Brunet-Garcia, a minority-owned firm that specializes in cause-related issues.
The two organizations have worked together in the past and are now combining to take on some of today’s challenging issues like mental health, substance use, the environment and transportation safety, particularly as they pertain to underserved communities nationwide.
Fors Marsh is a certified B Corporation with 420 staffers that for more than two decades has been serving federal clients like the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services (HHS), U.S. Department of Defense (DoD), U.S. Department of Transportation (DOT), and the U.S. Department of Homeland Security (DHS). The research firm uses behavioral science to address public health and well-being, promote public service and increase civic engagement, and more.
Marking its 20th anniversary this year, Brunet-García is headquartered in Jacksonville, Fla., and specializes in developing multicultural marketing strategies that build awareness and effect change around social issues impacting the country.
Ben Garthwaite, CEO of Fors Marsh, said, “B|G and Fors Marsh are aligned on values and share a common mission of driving meaningful social impact and change through powerful campaigns, especially around key health issues like immunization, substance use disorder, and chronic diseases.”
Diane Brunet-García, co-founder of Brunet-García, added, “Like Fors Marsh, we have built a close-knit team of incredibly talented professionals who have pushed boundaries to inspire meaningful change, so we know the Brunet-García team will continue to soar to even greater heights as part of Fors Marsh.”
