CHICAGO and PHILADELPHIA – Chicago-based Sales Empowerment Group (SEG), a highly recognized outsourced sales and marketing consulting firm, has acquired Philadelphia-based Square 2 Marketing, a highly innovative and nationally recognized marketing services agency.
Founded in 2003 by Eric Keiles and Mike Lieberman, Square 2 Marketing has been leading its industry by leaning into a strategy before tactics approach to helping companies generate leads and grow revenue. The company has been a top HubSpot partner since 2009 and was HubSpot’s first Diamond-level partner.
The combination of SEG and Square 2 provides clients a full click-to-close solution that includes strategic marketing guidance, support for any relevant marketing tactics, creative campaign design and technology services across the HubSpot platform. SEG clients and prospects now have access to the full spectrum of support for their revenue generation efforts.
“SEG has always provided clients with marketing, training and sales solutions, but the acquisition of Square 2 takes our ability to help clients with robust marketing services that integrate perfectly with SEG’s outsourced BDR/SDR model. This full-service model allows our partnering clients, PE firms and their private equity sponsors to drive sales growth even faster, generate leads and close those leads at an industry-leading level,” said Brian O’Neil, CEO of Sales Empowerment Group. “Square 2’s unique Accelerator Program that delivers six months of work in just 30 days, their long-standing relationship with HubSpot and their strategic approach to revenue generation fits perfectly with how we work with our clients today.”
“SEG is the right company at the right time to marry our strategic lead generation methodology with sales teams that close business for our clients,” said Mike Lieberman, CEO at Square 2. “It’s getting harder and harder for companies to grow revenue, and this combination gives companies an innovative approach that’s perfect for today’s highly competitive business environment.”
