News Flash – Social Media Group Acquires Livingston Communications

We’re taking a quick break from our break to share some great news from Maggie Fox’s Social Media Group.  SMG has acquired Livingston Communications, one of the leading social public relations firms in the Washington DC area.

With the acquisition, SMG’s staff grows to 20 with offices in Toronto, Calgary and Washington DC.

Geoff Livingston, currently CEO of Livingston Communications and author of Now is Gone: A Primer on New Media for Executives and Entrepreneurs becomes Executive Vice President for Social Media Group and will continue to head the Washington DC office.

Included in the acquisition are the popular Buzz Bin blog as well as the BlogPotomac conference.

"I am absolutely thrilled that Geoff Livingston and his team will be joining SMG. Geoff is one of the industry’s most highly respected thought leaders. Adding his social PR practice to our already comprehensive services creates a social media offering capable of serving any Global 2000 company, rivaling every traditional communications agency or consulting firm’s ‘social media practice’,” said Maggie Fox, CEO of Social Media Group. “Together our combined assets position our company as the largest independent and most experienced social media firm globally."

More details can be found on SMG’s site as well as on the Buzz Bin blog.

Congrats to Maggie and the entire team at Social Media Group!  Great to see Canadians taking over the world 🙂
