The Mission Marketing Group (TMMG) has highlighted a number of initiatives it has made to expand its service offering a geographic reach to the London Stock Exchange.

The group, which owns a number of marketing services agencies, has completed three transactions, with Bray Leino’s launch Bray Leino Vivactis for the healthcare sector, headed up former Grey Healthcare CEO Mark Duckham.

The new agency has a team of ten senior executives in place with expertise in the pharmaceutical market, who will work with Vivactis Group and operate out of a new location in Harefield Middlesex.

Bray Leino has also taken on 21 staff and purchased assets from Bristol agency Yucca to improve its focus in developing e-commerce websites and online campaigns.

Finally RLA has expanded its presence in Northern Ireland, having purchased assets from FireIMC, which was placed into liquidation, similar to the group’s acquisition of Robson Brown last December by ThinkBDW.

David Morgan, executive chairman of The Mission Group, said: "TMMG's strategy is to focus on organic growth whilst actively seeking new ventures, additional talent and strategic acquisitions to accelerate growth. Each of these three deals demonstrates that we are executing on that strategy in a careful and selective way. Each brings strengths and opportunities which complement and enhance our existing Agencies and the services we provide to our clients."
