Argyle, one of North America’s largest independent communications consulting agencies, has joined Believeco:Partners, an independent owner, operator and builder of the foremost partner-led marketing, communications and engagement agencies.
Alongside Argyle, which continues as a partner-led engagement, communication and reputation agency, clients will benefit from the services of Believeco, a new full-service marketing agency. Argyle continues to be a proud partner in Castlemain, the leading advisory firm serving Indigenous nations, peoples and communities. Together, these partner-led businesses comprise more than 300 professionals with offices across North America.
With deep financial backing from its partners and investors, Believeco:Partners plans to acquire more independent companies that fit its values and vision.
For my Argyle partners and me, it’s exciting to invest in a business with the ambition, reach and resources to transform the communications and marketing landscape – while remaining proudly owned and led by practitioners. It’s the next step in our vision to be North America’s premier management-owned engagement, communication and reputation advisory firm – benefiting clients, consumers, citizens and communities everywhere.
The impetus for Believeco:Partners began with Canadian business leader and Venture Play founder Arlene Dickinson, who set out to find partners who believe that independent marketing and communication firms at scale are the best way to serve clients and teammates.
Believeco:Partners is about keeping founders at the wheel, with skin in the game and committed to the long-term future of their teams and their clients’ business. Argyle has become one of North America’s largest independent public relations consulting firms. I’m excited about working together to create something extraordinary.
