The rebrand follows two major changes within the agency in the last few months. In May, FIRST named Barry Richards as the president of the firm’s expanded managed services division in New York. Shortly after, the company acquired Barkley Kalpak Agency (BKA) and appointed Jeff Kalpak as President, Americas to work directly with Maureen Ryan-Fable, CEO, Americas. The acquisition has enhanced the agency’s client portfolio in several key industries and service areas, and increased its total global workforce to nearly 200.

Maureen Ryan-Fable, CEO for FIRST Americas, said: "Over the past 20 years we have consistently stayed ahead of trends and market changes by offering new capabilities such as advisory services, resourcing solutions, creative content solutions, and technology that expand our market reach and build our expertise. We will continue to provide the high-touch services our clients have come to expect from our teams around the world."
