MERGE Top 100 MM and M Ad Agency

MERGE is now among the Top 100 on the MM&M Annual Agency Report 2020 as one of the top 50 healthcare marketing firms in North America. Following the unification with Sandbox in early March, the two agencies of about 300 people each joined together to create a powerhouse of talent, creativity and expertise.


While the world enters an uncertain time due to the coronavirus crisis, chief growth officer Pat McGloin ensures that fluidity is a priority. “We’re working to realize a singular vision and a flexible model across which talent can move fluidly to where it’s best applied. Sandbox literally doubles our ability to do that,” he says.


Despite the current climate, MERGE has united 600 people and integrated Sandbox’s outposts in Chicago, New York, Toronto, Southern California and Kansas City, Missouri, since announcing the combination in March. The team expects to rank significantly higher on the list next year now that they have effectively doubled their resources and resolve to bring even more transformational solutions to healthcare.
