In January of 2018, John McGovern, who had been running the Global Media, Events and Information Services group for 10 years, acquired the firm from Larry Grimes and is now the sole owner of Grimes, McGovern & Associates. The Grimes family is no longer involved in the firm, but their name lives on. Grimes, McGovern & Associates (formerly W.B. Grimes & Company) maintains full service offices in 10 US and 2 International cities to advise clients in mergers and acquisitions. Having regional associates within an easy commuting distance is particularly helpful for our newspaper and broadcast clients. The regionalized approach allows us to better keep a pulse on local economies, demographics and activity within given markets, spotting trends, monitoring competition while tracking all the movers and shakers within that region. The global nature of the Media, Events and Information Services Industries makes Grimes McGovern’s geographic footprint ideal for offering superior client service.
