VANCOUVER, BC - FCV Interactive has added to its expanding North American footprint with the acquisition of ISL Internet Solutions Ltd. (formerly ISL dba MODE), a leading digital agency in Halifax.
The acquisition follows the 2015 expansion of FCV to Atlantic Canada and will see the addition of MODE’s entire team, including its founding partners Malcolm Fraser and Naveed Ashfaq, to FCV’s operations in Halifax.
FCV is a user-focused transformation agency headquartered in Vancouver with offices in Victoria, Toronto, and Halifax. MODE has been a leader in Nova Scotia’s business community for over 20 years, and has built a reputation as an innovative digital professional services company.
"The philosophical, cultural, and technical alignment between our two businesses made this an easy decision,” said Johann Starke, FCV President and Chief Executive Officer. “MODE’s talent, client relationships and service offering are very complementary to FCV and we are excited to integrate these and continue to expand our presence in Atlantic Canada.”
“FCV is a great fit and this transaction allows us to achieve the goals we set for our business,” said Malcolm Fraser, President and Chief Executive Officer of MODE. “It will make a great home for our team and our clients, and I’m excited to bring my experience to FCV contributing to their continued growth across North America.” Fraser will join the Executive Team at FCV as Vice President, Managing Director of the Halifax Office.
