In a bold move that’s stirring excitement across the marketing industry, Luckie & Company has officially announced its acquisition of Marbury Creative Group (MCG), a renowned Atlanta-based marketing agency known for its outstanding contributions to the pharmaceutical, food & beverage, and hospitality sectors. This strategic acquisition is not just a testament to Luckie’s ambition to dominate the marketing scene but also a clear signal of its commitment to providing unparalleled creative and strategic marketing services.

By integrating MCG’s team of 18 into its Atlanta office, Luckie & Company is poised for significant expansion in key areas such as content creation, search engine marketing, and media strategy & planning. This integration comes with a promising outlook: no redundancies in staff or clientele, ensuring a smooth transition that benefits both parties and their clients.

This partnership ensures we can swiftly deliver more personalized and impactful brand content to meet the ever-growing market demand,” Gardner explained.

Under his leadership, MCG has carved a niche for itself with its innovative solutions and strategic agility. Marbury’s excitement about joining forces with Luckie is palpable. “Our philosophies have always aligned, and this merger opens a plethora of opportunities for MCG’s clients and team, offering access to enhanced analytics and specialized services,” Marbury stated.

Her expertise will spearhead Luckie’s business development and marketing efforts, promising a bright future for the agency’s growth and client relations.
