ST. LOUIS, May 12, 2015 /PRNewswire/ -- 2e Creative, Inc., a full-service creative agency based in St. Louis, Mo., with expertise in healthcare, science, and technology, will expand to the Dallas-Fort Worth metroplex to launch a new strategic PR and corporate communications service. This expansion comes on the heels of a period of record success for the agency, which has experienced 40 percent growth year-over-year during the past two years. The agency is also considering expansion opportunities on the west coast in the future.
The Dallas-Fort Worth area has become an attractive market for the healthcare, medical device and biotech industries, fueled by local institutions like the University of Texas Southwestern Medical Center and research universities that include the University of North Texas, the University of Texas at Dallas, and the University of Texas at Arlington. Along with favorable market and industrial growth potential, the DFW area also boasts a large and robust creative talent pool. These external factors, along with a growing client list in the metroplex, create an ideal expansion opportunity for 2e Creative.
"Over the past 16 years, 2e has become a nationally-recognized creative agency in no small part because of our constant evolution," said Ross Toohey, President of 2e Creative. "Complementing our existing tools with strategic PR and communications capabilities in a region of the country where we already have established, successful partnerships is an exciting continuation of this philosophy. Plus, the margaritas are a little bit better here."
The agency's new strategic communications service will join a broad range of existing, award-winning capabilities, including branding, marketing strategy, communication and analytics, digital strategy and development, advertising and promotion, and more. Lane Borrello, who previously worked in strategic communications at DFW-based Alcon and Caris Life Sciences, will lead the service as Director of PR and Communications Strategy.
2e Creative currently includes DFW-based Alcon, Siemens and Miraca Life Sciences among its roster of clients. The agency is coming off a record award-winning year in 2014, with more than 30 industry awards won, including being named "Healthcare Impact Agency of the Year" by Advertising Age and Modern Healthcare.
