As a newly combined platform, Good Giant is the largest gaming-focused creative agency in the country.  Good Giant provides comprehensive and reoccurring digital and traditional marketing services on a retained basis, often acting as the outsourced marketing arm for its clients.  Outside of gaming, Good Giant selectively works with brands in healthcare, consumer packaged goods, finance and technology.

Teddy Saltzstein, Managing Director of Six Pillars Partners, said, "We, alongside our long-time partner Merit, are fortunate to partner with Rich Sullivan and Jim Bauserman.  Both thoughtfully scaled premier marketing agencies each with a unique and differentiated service offering tailored to the same high-velocity, nuanced gaming vertical.  But more importantly, and something that jumped off the page immediately to us, is they are great people who are intentional about doing the right thing and passionate about growth through investment in people, process and technology.  These qualities are manifested in not only the Good Giant name itself but also how the company serves its clients."
