LOS ANGELES and NEW YORK, May 18 /PRNewswire/ -- Epic Advertising and Connexus Corporation today announced the completion of their merger, and the formation of Epic Media Group as the parent company. Epic Media Group will be headquartered in both Los Angeles, CA and New York, NY, with additional offices in Toronto, the San Francisco Bay Area, London, Chicago and Dallas.
The company's top-10 ranked network, Traffic Marketplace, remains as the brand leader and cornerstone of the company. Traffic distribution business units include the Traffic Marketplace network, tmpSocial, Epic Direct and FirstLook Search. Other brands included in Epic Media Group's suite of offerings include Online Intelligence, the company's brand protection and integrity assurance arm, as well as Winning the Web, the company's monthly business publication.
Art Shaw, CEO of Epic Media Group, said "The early stages of our merger have gone very well. Epic has been a strong brand for years now, and we are excited to retain it as our corporate brand. Traffic Marketplace has grown into a top brand in the digital marketing ecosystem. We are excited about several early wins for clients, especially in social media, and look to build upon it in the months to come."
By combining both technology platforms, the company is deploying a tightly integrated ad platform for its clients, creating the most efficient means to access target audiences across all forms of digital distribution channels including search, display, social media, video and mobile. Specifically, the company is actively working with clients in formulating social media engagement campaigns with elements of branded display and performance-based solutions, showcasing the true power of the new company.
