Acquisition fever took over the master agent community as 2020 came to a close.

We saw a significant amount of M&A in the last quarter of the year. TCG and Bridgepointe both acquired companies that will help them scale their operations and diversify their services. AppSmart announced its second master agent acquisition of 2020. Furthermore, a large agency got some significant private equity funding for the first time.

Our editorial team covered a variety of news, including supplier partnerships, hiring and new tools. We also saw no shortage of virtual summits, as companies like PlanetOne, Avant and Sandler Partners hosted online gatherings.
