Fishawack acquires 2e Creative


Independent healthcare communications specialist Fishawack has acquired US-based healthcare communications agency, 2e Creative, for an undisclosed sum.

The deal, which follows the acquisitions of creative consultancy Blue Latitude, Healthcircle Advertising and healthcare marketing agency Dudnyk, marks the fourth acquisition for Fishawack over the past 12 months.

The firm has made a total of five acquisitions with the support of mid-market private equity investor LDC since LDC backed the £38 million buyout of the business in 2017 with a commitment to support its international buy-and-build strategy.

The acquisitions take Fishawack’s global headcount to more than 750, placing it among the largest independent healthcare agencies globally.

2e Creative is a launch and growth agency featuring Fortune 50 clients across pharma, medical device and research biotech.  The agency’s core competencies include branding, marketing strategy, digital marketing, sales training and meeting/event production.
