LONDON and NEW YORK and TORONTO, March 15, 2016 /PRNewswire/ -- Green Square and R&D Venture Partners today announced the establishment of a collaborative relationship that will bring deeper expertise and market knowledge of the US and Canadian marketing communication markets for Green Square, and the European and Asian markets for R&D Venture Partners.
Green Square is a London based corporate finance and advisory practice specializing in the marketing communications and technology space. Collectively, the three partners have participated in over 100 transactions and bring a breadth and depth of knowledge of global markets.
R&D Venture Partners is a boutique M&A advisory business recently established by advertising holding company veterans Rob Dickson and Donna Granato. The firm specializes in transactions at the intersection of marketing services, consulting and marketing technology and is based in New York and Toronto.
Tony Walford said, "Technology has dramatically reshaped how businesses operate and broken down many geographical boundaries. Whilst many tasks can now be undertaken with a laptop and an internet connection, there is no replacement for direct market knowledge and on the ground physical presence. Through Rob and Donna we now have this and more. With over 30 years of combined experience in managing and acquiring new portfolio marcom companies they bring a complementary skillset. Most importantly they are kindred spirits – their passion for the sector, enjoying what they do and making sure they work with the right clients, mirrors the Green Square ethos."
Rob Dickson said, "As the world shrinks and the marketing services landscape continues to grow increasingly complex and global, finding partners with complementary knowledge of marketing sectors across the globe is essential to ensuring our ability to continue to deliver best in class services to our clients. Through this collaboration with Green Square, we will be better positioned to connect our North American clients to the UK, Europe and Asian markets. Culturally, we also have a very strong, but natural, bond with the partners at Green Square, through our shared histories in the sector. This means this isn't just about efficiencies – we enjoy working together."
