Growth at 10Pearls shows no signs of stopping. The end-to-end digital transformation company announced today that it has acquired Likeable, an iconic marketing and social media agency based in New York. The merger will give 10Pearls a distinct position in the marketplace, further enabling it to lead transformation for businesses
“Joining forces with Likeable will allow us to more strategically partner with our customers across the entire gamut of digital needs and ensure consistency of brand values from content to digital experience,” said 10Pearls CEO, Imran Aftab. “This marks a new chapter for 10Pearls and positions us for future exponential growth to follow on from last year’s high growth.”
Likeable brings a breadth of expertise across various industries, including retail, hospitality, health, and finance. The agency has an equally impressive list of accolades—having been named a Top 50 Ad Agency and Top 50 Fastest-Growing Women-Owned Businesses by WPO and American Express OPEN, respectively.
Together, the companies will prove to be a force for businesses who can no longer afford to ignore the benefits of incorporating social media into digital transformation initiatives.
According to Likeable Co-Founder and multifaceted powerhouse Carrie Kerpen, the reasons for joining 10Pearls went beyond good business sense. Both entities are committed to building a better future.
“In selecting a company to join forces with, we focused on a partner whose values align with our own,” said Kerpen. “10Pearls mission, commitment to diversity and inclusion, and focus on the ‘double bottom line’ of giving back to the world is one that truly helps create a more likeable world.”
This merger is the latest chess move in 10Pearls’ strategy to join forces with purpose-driven businesses that provide critical expertise around digital. It also acquired boutique companies Two Dots and TCT Computing Group in late 2020—proof that if 10Pearls isn’t on your list of top digital transformation companies to watch, it very well should be.
