New Socius Global M&A Website: Where Global is the New Local

By MVP Marketing + Design | January 15, 2020

Minneapolis, January 15, 2020 – MVP Marketing + Design, Inc., a Minneapolis Digital Agency serving clients throughout North America and worldwide, is proud to announce the completion of a new website for Socius Global.

Socius Global is an international partnership of middle-market investment banking professionals focused on providing innovative financial and strategic advisory solutions to a global clientele involved in complex, cross-border transactions. The global market intelligence of Socius’ network provides professionals with thoughtful expertise in structuring, negotiating, and closing a broad range of transactions across a variety of industries.

As a consortium of some 18 independent M&A firms ranging from North and South America to Europe, Asia and Australia, the Socius team sought a fresh digital brand with a complementary “better together” customized website that would convey their networked ability to seamlessly advise clients around the world on mergers and acquisitions (M&A), corporate finance transactions, and strategic matters. Socius tapped Minneapolis-based MVP Marketing + Design to help position them for a global audience while keeping the personal touch expected of local investment banks.  The project included both website and logo redesign.

Ingo Schulz, Founder of Socius Global and Co-Founder of investment bank Prestwick Partners, was thrilled with the results, “After the success of our own Prestwick website, it was an easy decision to partner with MVP again for the needs of our international investment banking network – Socius Global.  As expected, MVP’s well-versed M&A website designers delivered a high-impact, creative and customized site and smart new logo that appeals to our target market of entrepreneurs, private equity groups and corporations seeking local knowledge with global reach. MVP exceeded the expectations of the entire Socius Global network and gained the inside track for potential future work from all of its members.”

Given an audience of entrepreneurs, private equity groups and corporations seeking access to the global marketplace and made up of differing business cultures, customs, regulations and political systems, MVP designed Socius’ logo and website to be characteristic of a trusted partner, serving clients with tailored guidance informed by local knowledge. The website includes such features as an engaging home page video featuring a rotating globe, an icon-illustrated industry index that links to representative transactions, a dynamic deal section powered by MVP’s unique tombstone maker, which does not require use of Photoshop, and a continent-based team filter, which collectively demonstrate that at Socius, Global is the New Local.

Said MVP’s President and CEO Dick Weinrib “Having the Socius Global M&A and investment banking team express their complete satisfaction with our website design and development work is its own reward. And we can’t thank our friends at Prestwick enough for their active participation and support throughout the website and logo redesign projects. While Socius is not our first international website, we’re confident that it won’t be the last. Many thanks to the entire MVP design, development and project management team who helped make this global network website a reality.”
