FIRST, a leading global events and experiential agency operating from offices in London, New York, Los Angeles and Singapore, today announced the purchase of Clive, an experiential live events agency based in London and Dublin. The terms of the agreement were not disclosed.
By joining forces with Clive in the UK, eighteen months after the successful integration of Barkley Kalpak Agency (BKA) in the USA, FIRST has continued with its strategy to add a diversity of exceptional talent and enhance core delivery capabilities to meet the needs of their client portfolio.
“We are really excited about the Clive team joining FIRST – they totally complement our existing capabilities, particularly in the area of experiential marketing and live leading edge events” said Peter Godfrey, Chairman of FIRST. “Clive has a unique creative culture, a talented team, and a passion for delivering fresh, inspired experiences worldwide for its clients. We share similar values, and are clear that our clients and our people are at the heart of our respective businesses.”
