Creative advertising agency hot shop, named “Top 10 Agencies to Watch” by Ad Age—Intrepid helped Pitch find the right partner to expand its global reach.


Former President :: Rachel Spiegelman

Pitch is a full-service creative advertising agency based in sunny Southern California. Founded in 2008, Pitch handles advertising work for widely recognized brands such as Burger King, Nestle Waters, Netflix, Pepsi, Citrix, Waldorf Astoria, Public Storage and Coffee Bean & Tea Leaf. Along with its breakthrough creative that delivers a "Return on Creativity" for all of their clients, Pitch’s awards include Ad Age’s "Agency to Watch” and two "Best Campaigns of the Decade", the inaugural “Creative Favorites Award” from Twitter, and a Titanium Grand Prix at Cannes. Moreover, Rachel Spiegelman, Pitch President, was named one of Business Insider’s "30 Most Creative Women in Advertising" and Ad Age’s "40 under 40".

The team at Pitch had a strong vision for the future of the business and, more important, how they served current and potential clients. Intrepid acted as exclusive M&A advisor to Pitch and was tasked with finding a partner for the business that could help the team reach their goals, but that would also continue to enable them to have the strategic and creative flexibility and vision that had led to the founding of Pitch. Intrepid advised Pitch on its sale to Project: Worldwide Inc., an independent, global network of complementary, wholly owned agencies. Project has a network of 11 agencies spread across 45 global locations.

The cultural fit was important to both Pitch and Project: Worldwide. Intrepid is pleased to have facilitated a partnership that aligns the vision of both teams.
