As you may already know from our major news announcement on September 12, some exciting changes are coming soon at FAM. Our agency is combining forces with ndp, an award-winning, prominent full-service ad agency headquartered in Richmond with offices in Roanoke, Va., and Chattanooga, Tenn.
This union will create the state’s only advertising and marketing firm with a formidable footprint that extends from FAM’s office in Hampton Roads to ndp’s strong presence in Southwest Virginia. Also, the pairing will provide current and prospective clients with a deeper bench of talented people with expertise in a broad range of capabilities.
Executives from ndp and FAM expressed a mutual admiration for the proven record of excellence that each agency brings to the table.
“Both agencies excel at developing strategic advertising, marketing, media, digital and public relations campaigns with an integrated approach from start to finish, which is exactly what today’s clients are demanding,” says Danny Fell, President and CEO of ndp. “Everyone on our team at ndp is very excited about the new synergies that will result from this unique collaboration.”
According to FAM’s president, Ken Wayland, the larger agency offers a host of benefits for colleagues, clients and communities. “With ndp’s wider array of in-house services, our associates can broaden their skills in every discipline within our industry,” he says. “Clients will benefit from the expanded talent, capacities and capabilities. And our commitment to community involvement will be even stronger as we grow and prosper. It’s a win-win-win for everyone.”
The official transaction for ndp’s acquisition of FAM should be completed by year-end. Later this fall, employees in the Richmond offices of ndp and FAM will move into a newly renovated office in the Scott’s Addition section of the city.
