By Kyle O'Brien 

Colle McVoy has joined Stagwell’s Constellation collective of agencies. The Minneapolis creative agency joins 72andSunny, Brand Citizens, Harris Poll, Hecho Studios, Instrument, Redscout and Team Enterprises to help solve business problems.

Created in 2020, Constellation is Stagwell’s solution to help tackle complex client needs and solve business problems with a multi-agency approach. The agencies bring multiple marketing services to the table, including data, insights, creativity, technology and experiential. Over the last two years, these agencies have partnered on several projects— and pitched numerous high-profile business opportunities.

The addition of Colle McVoy will augment and expand Constellation’s creative, design, media and public relations resources, according to Justin Lewis, chair of Constellation. “Constellation continues to grow with new client relationships, expanding footprints in key markets across North America and abroad—and by adding the best and brightest in the industry,” Lewis said in a statement.


Christine Fruechte, CEO of Colle McVoy and its branded practices 10 Thousand Design and Exponent PR, said in a statement that joining Constellation is an evolution of the agency’s journey to expand its array of capabilities to fuel growth. “It’s also a natural step, given we’ve been partnering with many of the agencies already. We couldn’t be more thrilled to officially join this elite group of like-minded experts to scale our ability to create culture-shaping, disruptive creative and transformative brand solutions for impact-driven companies.”

The Constellation collective of agencies now includes Colle McVoy.

Fruechte continued that the agency is built for change, with a combination of disciplines that will add to the collective expertise of Constellation.

Google and Marriott are two big brands that utilize the network.
