How the Culture of Erb + Young Impacted an Acquisition

In May of 2018, our company had the opportunity to expand into the Melbourne market with the acquisition of another agency.  Whenever something like this happens, there’s a lot of unforeseen circumstances; two company’s in the same industry with two different cultures and two different ways of doing things.  

The foundation of everything we do is grounded in our culture.  It is a combination of personal development and teamwork, and is the driving force that has led us to serve our clients at the highest level possible while providing a roadmap to move the needle forward in our own lives and careers.
