Washington, DC, (April 5, 2021) – FOCUS Investment Banking (“FOCUS”), a national middle market investment banking firm providing merger, acquisition, divestiture and corporate finance services, announced today that Chenega Corporation, an Alaska Native corporation, has sold ADG Creative LLC, a Columbia, Maryland-based strategic communications and creative services firm, to Proximas Group, a family of companies that serves the U.S. defense industry. FOCUS represented Chenega in this transaction.
ADG will continue to serve its federal and commercial clients out of its Columbia location, operating as a wholly-owned subsidiary of Proximas.
“Our primary market is here in the Baltimore-Washington region, whether the Department of Defense, federal or commercial sector,” said Evan Davis, President of ADG. “This new arrangement allows us to expand our reach in these markets, access new contracts, partnerships and networks, and deliver more robust solutions through our combined capabilities.”
