Deal brings film and actor clients to growing praisery

Beck Media & Marketing has acquired Eddie MichaelsInsignia Public Relations.

Michaels will join Todd Beck’s praisery, and many of his clients are expected to follow him in the transition.

Clients under the Insignia umbrella include Illumination Entertainment, Bento Box Entertainment, and actors including Noah Wyle. Insignia acquisition means Beck Media will now rep indie feature film shingles and financiers, broadening a client roster that leans toward TV and digital companies as well as non-profit orgs.

Beck Media’s union with Insignia was spurred by Steve Spignese, a Beck exec who is a longtime friend of Michaels.

“As my clients have found ever greater success and growth in their businesses, I knew I needed a first-class infrastructure to support my continued work on their behalf,” Michaels said. “We are like-minded in our commitment to client service and results, and our areas of expertise are highly complementary.”

Beck added: “Eddie is a proven leader with a great reputation in the industry and I know he will fit into our existing team seamlessly as we continue to grow.”
