The introduction of the Atlanta office follows on the heels of Acquity Group’s growth both domestically and abroad.
Acquity Group (NYSE AMEX: AQ), a leading global Brand eCommerce™ and digital marketing company, announced today the launch of its new office in Atlanta to accommodate demand and support continued growth in the southeast U.S. Rob Milstead joined Acquity Group as Vice President and Group Client Partner for the Southeast Territory to direct development in this new location.
As Vice President and Group Client Partner, Milstead will play an integral role in building Acquity Group’s Atlanta office, driving strategy and supporting business development in the region. He brings over 15 years’ experience in digital marketing and eCommerce strategy and execution, most recently as Vice President at Sapient Corporation, where he managed business in the southeast U.S. Prior to that, Milstead held a variety of senior-level marketing and management roles in the technology and professional services sectors.
“As a thriving metropolis that’s home to many of the world’s most popular brands, Atlanta offers a significant opportunity for business and revenue growth, as well as an exceptional pool of regional talent,” said Andy Peebler, Executive Vice President of Acquity Group. “Rob’s strong leadership and expertise will serve as an asset in building this office. Under his direction, I am confident we can tap into the enormous potential of this market and continue to expand our presence in the southeast.”
The introduction of the Atlanta office follows on the heels of Acquity Group’s growth both domestically and abroad. Earlier this year in May, the company announced its entry in the Canadian market with a new office in Ottawa, Ontario. In addition, several key Acquity Group locations expanded throughout 2012 to keep pace with growth, including New York City, San Francisco and Seattle.
The new office expansion will be coupled with investment in Atlanta-based talent to augment Acquity Group’s existing staff.
