Arlington County-based market strategy and research firm Fors Marsh has acquired Florida-based marketing firm Brunet-García, the company announced April 5.

B|G will augment our creative and outreach capabilities and provide deep expertise in multicultural marketing and communications. Fors Marsh’s research-driven experience, combined with Brunet-García’s creative talent, creates an unmatched portfolio of services to help a wider range of federal and state organizations and, in turn, continue our joint mission of improving Americans’ lives.”
