Mod Op Acquires Sage Communications

MIAMI – July 8, 2020 – Mod Op, a marketing communications agency with offices across the U.S. and an office in Latin America, has acquired Kansas City-based integrated marketing communications firm Sage Communications. This acquisition expands the agency’s geographical presence in the Midwest while also adding a new Fortune 100 client.

“Mod Op is continuing to add strategic acquisitions that expand our reach and add new and exciting clients – John Deere in the case of Sage,” said Eric J. Bertrand, CEO, Mod Op. “After our acquisition of MCC last year, which expanded our capabilities to a full-service offering, we continue to look for opportunities where we can bring that experience and success to other great clients.”

With more than 18 years providing strategic communications counsel and services to a wide variety of leading agricultural, animal health and B2B clients, Sage’s offerings will continue to expand Mod Op’s portfolio. Additionally, with its centralized location, Mod Op’s new Kansas City presence better positions the agency to provide comprehensive services to more companies across the U.S.

“This new relationship provides tremendous benefits for both Sage’s clients and the Mod Op team,” said Leigh Ann Cleaver, former president, Sage. “From enhanced service offerings for current and future clients, to tremendous growth opportunities for employees, we are excited about our future as part of the Mod Op team.”

Mod Op Kansas City will operate out of Sage’s current Crossroads office location at 1525 Locust Street in Kansas City, Missouri. As part of the transition, former Sage president Leigh Ann Cleaver will join the Mod Op management team.

Based in Miami, and with offices in Dallas, Los Angeles, Portland, New York and Panama City, Panama, Mod Op delivers creative and strategic solutions for well-known brands like Microsoft, Marriott, ExxonMobil, Hudson Pacific Properties, Visit Florida, Baha Mar, LVMH, Warner Brothers, ViacomCBS, NBC Universal, Nike and many others.

During the process, Mod Op was advised by Reid and Riege, P.C., while Sage was advised by Vincent Law. Additionally, Generational Equity served as the investment bank for this acquisition.
