North Canton marketing and web design agency The Karcher Group is acquiring Uniontown digital marketing agency Pole Position Marketing. The merger expands TKG digital marketing offerings, particularly in SEO, pay-per-click advertising and content marketing.
“I have always believed that digital marketing is just too big for one — or even a few — people to know everything at an expert level," PPM Owner Stoney deGeyter said. "We have always sought to grow experts in specific silos of digital marketing. That mindset made partnering with The Karcher Group an easy choice. Both agencies have been operating for more than 20 years and our core values are very much in line.”
- As part of the deal, deGeyter was named vice president of search and advertising at TKG.
- TKG will keep deGeyter's PPM leadership team — Jennifer Gross, Kelley Gifford and Alan Waggoner — intact.
