Team

The Stevens Group team consists of highly experienced professionals who understand all facets of PR and digital marketing agencies and what it takes to run them and plan for their future.  We understand the mindset of a PR and digital marketing agency owner and the issues being faced by management of these companies on a daily basis.

Our team consists of individuals who have made their mark in PR, digital marketing, sales promotion and advertising agency management. As formerly hands-on owners and managers of PR and digital marketing agencies our team is comprised of experts in facilitation and consulting with agency CEO’s, whether they be buyers or sellers, through the entire mergers & acquisitions process. Collectively, we provide every agency owner with such services as preparing him or her to sell his or her agency, how to maximize his or her business and personal assets, how to generate new business, how to protect his or her agency with appropriately- worded contracts and how to prepare CEO’s for the eventual sale of their firm to a well-suited buyer.
