North 6th Agency Acquires Leading Toronto-Based Social Media Marketing Agency Atlas Communications

NEW YORK, July 31, 2017 – North 6th Agency (N6A), an award-winning brand communications agency, today announced that it has acquired Atlas Communications (Atlas), a leading social media marketing agency based in Toronto.

Atlas CEO Jasmine Pickel will run N6A’s Toronto operation, and will report to N6A Executive Vice President Daniela Mancinelli out of N6A’s headquarters in New York City.

With the acquisition, N6A has expanded its service offering to include social media, paid social, content marketing, design, and Canadian market media relations.

“We are ecstatic to welcome Toronto’s leading social media marketing agency into the N6A family,” said Matt Rizzetta, CEO of N6A. “Toronto has been a second home to N6A for a long time, and with the acquisition of Atlas we’re now able to expand our geographic footprint and to provide our clients with a more robust service experience across social media, content marketing and design.”

N6A will retain all of Atlas’ employees and will be relocating a team of current employees from N6A’s New York City office to Toronto immediately. Current N6A employees will serve as the core public relations and media relations team in the N6A Toronto office, while Atlas will serve as the social media, paid social, content marketing, and design arm of N6A.

Atlas’ current office in the Financial District will serve as the flagship office for N6A Toronto.

“From day one we felt a chemistry and an alignment with N6A’s values, culture and customer service commitment,” said Jasmine Pickel, CEO of Atlas Communications, and new head of the N6A Toronto office. “This acquisition gives us immediate scale, global client reach and the opportunity to be an integral piece of an organization that is creating something special.”

Founded in 2013, Atlas has gained acclaim in Toronto and across the Canadian market for its innovation and results in social media, content marketing, design, and pay-per-click management.

N6A has been recognized by Forbes.com for its unique customer service approach and data-driven commitment to generating results for clients.
