Membership Consultants Joins Forces with Gabriel Group
We have some exciting news to share with you!
As of June 18, 2018, Membership Consultants and Gabriel Group, a fellow St. Louis-based direct mail and fundraising firm, have officially joined forces through a mutual acquisition agreement. The merger comes as an exciting one as it adds greater depth in expertise and focus to the clients of both companies.
As you know, Membership Consultants provides program strategy and planning services to membership organizations including museum, zoo, aquarium, and visitation-based nonprofits and associations around the world. We also specialize in direct mail, digital marketing, telemarketing, and on-site sales campaigns. These services will now be combined with Gabriel Group’s areas of expertise which include full-service campaign development, planned giving lead generation, and in-depth data analysis. As a whole, both Membership Consultants and Gabriel Group will greatly benefit by the collective services the pair will now offer together to our nonprofit partners.
We couldn’t be more excited to be teaming up with Gabriel Group. Moving forward, we will be able to provide expanded direct mail capacity, as well as a greater depth in staffing resources and client services to our current and future clients. This move is a smart one due to the fact that gaps that were previously left open are now filled on both sides. We can’t wait to begin working with our new team members at Gabriel Group and begin making a difference together as a united front.
Charlie Pitlyk, President of Gabriel Group said, “Having the Membership Consultants team on board is going to be amazing for Gabriel Group as a company. Adding their extensive knowledge of membership marketing and management to our existing suite of fundraising services will help so many organizations and their missions. Our company cultures and our collective focus on quality fundraising services is a perfect match. We are very much looking forward to experiencing the many positive outcomes, both internal and external, this will have on our future together.”
We assure our clients, friends, and prospects that nothing is changing with Membership Consultants' services or staff. The only thing that will be changing is our address. We have packed all of our history of service to the museum, zoo, and membership markets, and brought it with us. Our experience, expertise, reputation and passion for the work that we do are coming, too!
We look forward to introducing you to some of our new colleagues and services as we move forward.
