Sacunas is now Merit

by Adam Vasquez

It’s official: Sacunas is now Merit.

Why Merit, and why now?

Why not?

Since purchasing the firm in 2015, we’ve been on a mission to define ourselves and discover what makes our process – and our people – unique.

In all of our soul-searching, we’ve learned that we do things differently. We help our clients move beyond advertising to invent the future of their industries and lead their markets. We help them move forward, so it’s about time we did the same for ourselves.

Today, we’re taking a big, audacious leap in a direction that represents what we’ve learned – and where we’re headed.

Merit isn’t just a name; it’s the belief that in order to move ahead, you have to earn the right to move apart. It embodies what we believe, and the work we do for our clients – helping them become the center of what’s next.

Thank you to our clients and communities for believing in our vision and letting us help you with your toughest business challenges. We’re genuinely grateful for your support and continued partnership as we embark on this exciting change.

House of Ideas: Life at the Mansion

If you haven’t been to Harrisburg, PA, you should come. This town has a vibe unlike any other. We’d describe it as a passion for greatness driven by an aversion to ego. It’s pretty wonderful, actually.

Authenticity is Critical to M&A Success

Integrating teams isn’t easy. In fact, 70–90% of all mergers and acquisitions fail. But practicing empathy and authenticity can ease the transition for new employees – and turn an uncertain future into a harmonious one.

Show Love by Giving Back

At Merit, one of our values is to “show love”. I’d heard that before but I had never truly seen that put into action.

Stay Golden

It’s 2017 and the idea of manners is going to hell in a handbasket. Good manners equals good business. If you can’t treat others with the respect and courtesy they deserve, what does this say about you?
