Bill O’Dowd, CEO of Dolphin Entertainment commented:

With the highly strategic acquisition of influencer marketing agency Be Social, Dolphin 1.0, DLPN’s central investment plan to shape and run a best-in-class entertainment marketing “Super Group,” had a prosperous 2020. The acquisition of BH/I, a major entertainment advertising, gaming, and Esports PR agency, extended the momentum into 2021, widening Dolphin into promising new entertainment verticals and dramatically boosting cross-sell prospect.
