Our focus on search, data, and consumer behavior is very complementary to 3Q Digital's suite of digital marketing services, and we are excited to play such an important role in serving the end-to-end needs of today's sophisticated marketers," Rayden said. "We have a tremendous amount of respect for 3Q Digital. We share the same goals, values, culture, and passion for the work we do together and for our clients. Together we can create an even better opportunity for our employees and be an agency our clients can continue to grow into, learn from, and expect amazing results from year over year.
