Change is in the air...

I am very excited to share some news about MODE and the next steps for our business.

As of September 1, MODE (ISL) has been acquired by FCV Interactive. This is exciting news and I want to share why it makes sense for our business and what it will mean to our clients.

We have been successful due to the unwavering support of our clients, our team, and our community. We are very thankful for that support and this change is designed to grow our capabilities to serve our clients, build career opportunities for our team, and continue our engagement within the community.

FCV is a national user-focused transformation agency headquartered in Vancouver with offices in Victoria, Toronto and Halifax housing over 120 professionals. These new team members add additional capacity to our existing services, extend our current services with the addition of a large Brand Experience team, Service Design capabilities, and a Strategy and Transformation team. To add to that value, MODE is bringing its Digital Marketing and Measurement services to the broader FCV client base.

This is a marriage that brings together two industry leaders in a way that extends the value of our services to our clients.

Some key transition information:

  1. The transition for our clients will be seamless. All of our team has come over, the same people delivering our services today are same people that will be delivering your services tomorrow.
  2. Both Naveed and I are continuing with the company - I am a Vice President and will be on the Executive Team for FCV as well as Managing Director of the Halifax office. Naveed continues as Senior Director, User Experience.
  3. Our clients will have access to a larger team with amazing skills and experiences - you can take a quick spin through the FCV website ( to learn more about who we work with and the type of work we do.

We are all very excited about this transition for our business. I speak for the entire ISL/MODE team, and all the people who have worked with and for us over the last 20 years when I say a very heartfelt Thank you!
