Through this collaboration, we saw how deep subject matter expertise could inject fresh thinking into our clients’ work in the health and wellness space,” said Jennifer Brekke, founder of Scout and president of ConcentricLife in a press release . “And, from what we see in our competitive set, there’s a distinct gap for an agency that marries these kinds of specialist practices and flexible talent to build teams that place the consumer’s holistic health experience as the central point of every brief.”
