The Shipyard is acquiring design agency Stream Digital to bolster the independent agency's web design, development and e-commerce capabilities. Terms of the deal were not disclosed.
Stream Digital’s founder Todd Cameron will become managing director, digital experience at The Shipyard, and Aaron Cook will continue to serve as creative director. Stream Digital will move into The Shipyard's Columbus, OH office.
Deemed as “marketing engineering," The Shipyard was founded in 2013 by industry veteran Rick Milenthal, who was CEO of digital agency, Engauge, now a part of Publicis Groupe, and marketing technology pioneer Ben Clarke, who was CEO of People To My Site.
The deal is the latest of several recent acquisitions by The Shipyard which purchased West Coast ad agency O’Leary and Partners last February. Earlier, it acquired Colorado-based content marketing shop Revolocity.
With the Stream Digital acquisition there are now 185 employees in total working across offices in Columbus OH, Newport Beach, CA and Evergreen CO. Clients of the agency include AEP - American Electric Power, Angie's List, Donato's Pizza, Virgin Casino, Tropicana Online, Jibo, Scott's, Fantastic Sam's, WD 40, and Orange County Credit Union.
