Barkley has announced that it is creating a dedicated group focused on the health and finance sectors after acquiring Meers Advertising. 

"By 2020, health care spending is projected to be nearly 20 percent of our GDP and there's an incredible amount of emerging technology in financial services," said Dan Fromm, BPresident and COO of Barkley. "We see amazing growth and opportunities to connect with modern consumers in both of these areas, and this group will help us build the biggest possible future for our company."

Sam Meers, former Meers Advertising CEO, and Allisyn Wheeler, Meers Advertising former president, will lead this newly created team.

"This is a huge win for our people and our clients," Meers said. "Our people get to be part of the amazing culture at Barkley and our clients get the continued focus we've been providing for years, but with direct access to the strategic capabilities Barkley has built in creative, innovation, design, social and more."

Meers will officially move into the Barkley headquarters on August 31.
