COLUMBUS, OH — Fahlgren Mortine is going to be integrating customer experience firm Mindstream Interactive into its operations as the Ohio-based agency continues to expand its offerings.

Both Columbus, Ohio-based firms are owned by Eastport Holdings and already share clients in the tourism and economic development, retail, workforce development and chemical manufacturing sectors.

Mindstream will continue to operate under its current name. The firm’s leaders will report to Fahlgren Mortine president Marty McDonald.

“There are tremendous synergies gained by integrating the operations of Mindstream Interactive with Fahlgren Mortine,” said chairman and CEO Neil Mortine. “First and foremost, the two firms have been collaborating for years within the Eastport Holdings network to serve our respective clients and compete for new business.”

The move furthers Fahlgren Mortine's overarching to plan to build out its digital capabilities and expertise. In April, the firm merged with thePLAN, a digital brand experience company that provides digital strategy, user experience design, technology and data analytics services.
