Stagwell to Acquire PROS Agency

Stagwell (NASDAQ: STGW), the challenger network built to transform marketing, has entered into an agreement to acquire PROS Agency, a Brazil-based brand and marketing consultancy specializing in digital public relations (PR), creative planning and production, influencer marketing, and brand development. Headquartered in São Paulo, the agency will play a key role in driving business for Stagwell within Brazil as well as the greater Latin America (LATAM) region as part of Allison, a global marketing and communications consultancy within Stagwell.

“PROS’ creative strategy and digital innovation expertise helps brands create engaging and purposeful conversations with consumers, consistently pushing the boundaries of PR – making them a true leader in the region,” said Stagwell Chairman and CEO Mark Penn. “I worked in Latin America for several years and have always noted its massive growth potential. This acquisition is key to our accelerated global expansion strategy, and I’m pleased to welcome Daniela and her team to our network.”

“Since launching our operations in Brazil and Latin America two years ago we’ve driven significant results for regional brands, landed new global clients such as Lenovo and Motorola, and expanded our footprint with the additions of new agency partners to our Global Affiliate network,” said Vinicius Reis, president, Stagwell Brazil and CEO, Crispin Porter and Bogusky (CP+B) Brazil. “In less than 10 years PROS’ ‘People Relations’ approach to creative and digital storytelling has earned the agency widespread recognition and work with the most important brands in the region. Their addition to our network further strengthens Allison’s brand and positions us for significant growth in Brazil and LATAM.”

PROS employs a contemporary perspective to PR by connecting data and cultural context to execute in various formats. The team of over 130 professionals is co-led by founder and CEO Daniela Graicar and co-CEO Fernanda Tchernobilsky, as well as partner Alan Strozenberg. They will continue to lead the agency.

“It’s a great accomplishment to be part of an international network so aligned with our values and in retaining the boldness that defines us. The management autonomy that Stagwell offers us and the support for our growth were also decisive factors in this choice,” said Daniela Graicar, founder and CEO, PROS. “More than ever, we are committed to our team and clients – who have gotten us to this point – and excited about the plans for our evolution in the coming years. The depth and breadth of the Allison global network opens up tremendous opportunity for us to show up in new ways for our clients.”

With clients such as Boticário, Amazon, Mondelez, Vibra, Porto, and Kimberly Clark, the agency closed 2023 with 50% growth and expects to grow another 20% this year.

PROS will retain its leadership and will collaborate with other Brazil and Latin America agencies in the Stagwell network to expand service offerings to clients. Stagwell’s agency network in Brazil, Argentina, Mexico, and Central America includes Allison, Assembly, Code and Theory’s Truelogic, CP+B, Ink, and Locaria.

PROS marks Stagwell’s fourth acquisition in 2024, following What’s Next PartnersSidekick, and Team Epiphany.
