Invigor8 Communications, LLC, a full-service marketing communications and public relations firm located in East Nashville announced today that it has acquired the press management and marketing communications business portfolio of SBResults, LLC, a Hermitage, Tenn., -based web design firm in an undisclosed cash and equity deal.
Under the terms of the deal, SBResults will retain its web programming portfolio of business servicing clients including Vanderbilt University and the firm will remain jointly owned by Lane Scoggin and Shane Burkett and managed by Scoggin.
Burkett is also the advertising sales manager for Out & About Newspaper. He will cease involvement in the day-to day operations of SBResults and will split his time between O&AN and Invigor8 as the firm’s vice president and creative marketing officer.
Rusty Carbaugh, president and strategic marketing officer at Invigor8, is extremely pleased with the transaction and with bringing Burkett on board as co-manager of the firm.
“I believe that Shane’s creative direction and ability to consistently think outside the box when it comes to marketing and management will be a strong asset to Invigor8 Communications and the clients we serve," Carbaugh said. "My staff and I are pleased all the way around and are excited to have Shane on board.”
Lane Scoggin, president of SBResults shared in Carbaugh’s excitement about the acquisition.
"SBResults is proud to partner with Invigor8 Communications because they are a committed team of professionals that will provide a clearly focused direction for our client’s marketing services," Scoggin said. "Invigor8 Communications chose one of our leaders, Shane Burkett, as a member of its team as proof of their commitment to provide a seamless transition and consistent marketing solutions."
To accommodate the business acquisition and staff growth, Invigor8 has leased and improved additional office space in East Nashville in their Woodland Street building.
“We knew when we entered this market that we had made a strong business decision, but we had not anticipated the marketplace response to our product and aggressive pricing and are growing to accommodate our expanding client portfolio,” Carbaugh said.
Invigor8 will soon be adding an Invigor8ion Station which will be a high-tech, multi-platform immersion experience room for community and client use that will be opening later this month.
Invigor8 Communications is located at 935A Woodland Street in East Nashville’s 5-Points Area and currently serves clients across the country. More information about the firm is available at getinvigor8ed.com.
