Stagwell brings together multidisciplinary agencies under one roof to prioritize connected solutions for clients

LONDON, April 18, 2024 /PRNewswire/ — Stagwell (NASDAQ: STGW), the challenger network built to transform marketing, today celebrates the grand opening of its EMEA headquarters situated in London’s Blue Fin Building in the vibrant South Bank neighborhood.

This milestone closely follows the company’s FY 2023 earnings report, which saw Stagwell’s EMEA agencies leading growth, with a 17% year-over-year net revenue increase.

The day will be marked by an office-wide activation where agency teams will gather to celebrate the future and foster relationships in alignment with the company’s focus on interconnected solutions.

“The collective strength of our 20 multidisciplinary European agencies – brought together at the Blue Fin building – underscores Stagwell’s investment in European growth. With award-winning agencies like Assembly, Goodstuff, Allison, Forsman & Bodenfors, KWT Global and many more coming together under one roof, we can better leverage our network’s assets to build advanced solutions for clients,” said Mark Penn, Chairman and CEO of Stagwell.

Stagwell has already made two European acquisitions in Q1 2024. First Sidekick, an award-winning collective of specialist agencies focused on experiential, digital storytelling, and branded content, joined marketing and communications consultancy, Allison. Shortly after, Stagwell announced the acquisition of WHAT’S NEXT PARTNERS (WNP), a French digital brand and marketing consultancy specializing in data-powered strategies, integrated communications, and creative content, which joined the Anomaly Alliance.

“We’re seeing a growing cohort of marketing leaders seeking an alternative to the legacy holding companies. Continued growth in our creative and media portfolios, and our deep commitment to scaling our research, digital transformation and technology businesses will drive connected solutions across the whole region. This gives us confidence that we can help clients transform and win on an ongoing basis,” said James Townsend, CEO of Stagwell EMEA.

In recent months, Assembly, Stagwell’s largest agency operating in Europe, continued to shore up its operations across the region, making several senior personnel announcements, including the elevation of James Appleby to Managing Director, UK, and Kashif Dalvi to Head of Strategy, along with the appointment of James Wilde as Head of Growth & Marketing and Lizzy Herbertson as Commercial Director in Europe. The media company also added two managing partners in Europe: Alex Boniface, and Bridget Hopkins.

Additionally, in late March, Forsman & Bodenfors, the global creative collective, announced it would integrate Crispin Porter + Bogusky’s UK agency, CPB London, into its business to become a scaled offering in the market.

Agencies operating throughout the region include 72andSunny, Anomaly, Allison, Assembly, Brand New Galaxy, Code and Theory, Forsman & Bodenfors, Goodstuff, HarrisX, Hunter, Ink, KWT Global, Locaria, National Research Group, Sidekick, Stagwell Marketing Cloud, and What’s Next Partners.

Female-Founded Agency Grew 50% in 2023 and Will Scale Stagwell’s Presence in Brazil and Latin America as Part of Allison

SÃO PAULO, April 15, 2024 /PRNewswire/ — Stagwell (NASDAQ: STGW), the challenger network built to transform marketing, has entered into an agreement to acquire PROS Agency (PROS), a Brazil-based brand and marketing consultancy specializing in digital public relations (PR), creative planning and production, influencer marketing, and brand development. Headquartered in São Paulo, the agency will play a key role in driving business for Stagwell within Brazil as well as the greater Latin America (LATAM) region as part of Allison, a global marketing and communications consultancy within Stagwell.  

“PROS’ creative strategy and digital innovation expertise helps brands create engaging and purposeful conversations with consumers, consistently pushing the boundaries of PR – making them a true leader in the region,” said Stagwell Chairman and CEO Mark Penn. “I worked in Latin America for several years and have always noted its massive growth potential. This acquisition is key to our accelerated global expansion strategy, and I’m pleased to welcome Daniela and her team to our network.” 

“Since launching our operations in Brazil and Latin America two years ago we’ve driven significant results for regional brands, landed new global clients such as Lenovo and Motorola, and expanded our footprint with the additions of new agency partners to our Global Affiliate network,” said Vinicius Reis, president, Stagwell Brazil and CEO, Crispin Porter and Bogusky (CP+B) Brazil. “In less than 10 years PROS’ ‘People Relations’ approach to creative and digital storytelling has earned the agency widespread recognition and work with the most important brands in the region. Their addition to our network further strengthens Allison’s brand and positions us for significant growth in Brazil and LATAM.”  

PROS employs a contemporary perspective to PR by connecting data and cultural context to execute in various formats. The team of over 130 professionals is co-led by founder and CEO Daniela Graicar and co-CEO Fernanda Tchernobilsky, as well as partner Alan Strozenberg. They will continue to lead the agency. 

“It’s a great accomplishment to be part of an international network so aligned with our values and in retaining the boldness that defines us. The management autonomy that Stagwell offers us and the support for our growth were also decisive factors in this choice,” said Daniela Graicar, founder and CEO, PROS. “More than ever, we are committed to our team and clients – who have gotten us to this point – and excited about the plans for our evolution in the coming years. The depth and breadth of the Allison global network opens up tremendous opportunity for us to show up in new ways for our clients.” 

With clients such as Boticário, Amazon, Mondelez, Vibra, Porto, and Kimberly Clark, the agency closed 2023 with 50% growth and expects to grow another 20% this year.  

PROS will retain its leadership and will collaborate with other Brazil and Latin America agencies in the Stagwell network to expand service offerings to clients. Stagwell’s agency network in Brazil, Argentina, Mexico, and Central America includes Allison, Assembly, Code and Theory’s Truelogic, CP+B, Ink, and Locaria.

Combination of Two Storied Agency Brands in Europe Powers Stagwell’s EMEA Creative Presence and Growth Plans

LONDON, March 28, 2024 /PRNewswire/ — Stagwell (NASDAQ: STGW)’s Forsman & Bodenfors, the global creative collective, today announced it will integrate Crispin Porter Bogusky’s UK agency, CPB London, four months after it opened a satellite office in London. CPB London CEO, Helen James, will lead the newly combined entity, managing the team and reporting to Forsman & Bodenfors’ global CEO, Toby Southgate. The London agency will now become a major hub in the global Forsman & Bodenfors collective.

James commented, “It’s incredibly exciting to be welcomed into the Forsman & Bodenfors family, a brand we’ve long respected and indeed felt akin to in Europe. We’re looking forward to producing the best of Swedish-inspired creativity, delivered through a London lens – and alongside an agency that continues to embrace CPB London’s reputation for provocative ideas.”

Southgate commented, “Bringing Helen and her brilliant team into the family now makes this the real thing. With this unity, clients get scale, immediate impact, and a combined culture that’s unique to the market. We can do some incredible things together – the stars have aligned.”

The combination of the two agency teams now gives Forsman & Bodenfors a scaled offering in a globally significant market, and provides CPB London’s clients access to a robust global network of agency talent across key markets.

James will work alongside Johan Eghammer, F&B’s Head of Creative, who relocated to London last Summer. Eghammer, a highly awarded creative at Forsman for over two decades, was also previously executive creative director at Crispin Porter Bogusky in Boulder, Colorado.

CPB London has excelled in delivering consistently powerful work for both local and international clients. Recognised in the last two years for its award-winning work by The Burberry British Diversity Awards, The Drum, the British Arrows and the Gerety Awards, the agency also picked up Digiday’s global ‘Greater Good’ gong for its Mother’s Day Cards by Misogynists work and was highly commended Agency of the Year at the Campaign / PRWeek Purpose Awards ’23

Founded in 1986, Forsman & Bodenfors has achieved global recognition as one of the most awarded agencies in the world, including winning 100+ Cannes Lions and being named in the Top 3 agencies of the decade. The agency is known for its flat structure, radical approach to collaboration, and commitment to ideas that transform business and shift culture. The agency has received global acclaim for work including ‘Epic Split’ and the Live Test Series for Volvo Trucks, ‘E.V.A initiative’ and multiple launches and campaigns for Volvo Cars, ‘Discover the Originals’ for Visit Sweden, ‘Kami’ for Down Syndrome International, ‘Wow No Cow’ for Oatly, and ‘Marriage Market Takeover’ for SK-II. Forsman & Bodenfors is also the only global creative agency to have achieved gender pay equity as certified by Fair Pay Workplace.

“Bringing Forsman and CPB London together will further bolster Stagwell’s European footprint, enriching an already standout creative offering for our clients,” commented Stagwell EMEA CEO James Townsend. “This unity continues to build on the momentum of our strong European expansion, just weeks after we launched a regional hub at the Blue Fin Building in London and added two other agencies to the Stagwell EMEA umbrella – What’s Next Partners and Sidekick.”

About Forsman & Bodenfors:

Forsman & Bodenfors is a global creative collective transforming our clients’ businesses with ideas that change things. We work with some of the world’s most human brands including Volvo, Mandarin Oriental,  SK-II, Google, Goldman Sachs, Polestar, Diageo, P&G, Crocs, LG, General Mills and H&M. Forsman & Bodenfors is one of the most globally awarded agencies across creativity and innovation, with key accolades including Cannes Lions: Top 3 Independent Agency of the Decade; Contagious Pioneers; Fast Company: Most Innovative Companies; Digiday: Most Collaborative Culture.  Forsman and Bodenfors is also the first and only global creative agency to receive both the global 3% Certification, and global certification from Fair Pay Workplace.

IMMIGRATION REMAINS VOTERS’ TOP CONCERN FOR THIRD CONSECUTIVE MONTH

TIKTOK BAN IS A BATTLE OF GENERATIONS, NOT PARTY

NEW YORK and CAMBRIDGE, Mass., March 25, 2024 /PRNewswire/ — Stagwell (NASDAQ: STGW) today released the results of the March Harvard CAPS / Harris poll, a monthly collaboration between the Center for American Political Studies at Harvard (CAPS) and the Harris Poll and HarrisX.

President Joe Biden’s overall approval rating remained at 45%, while 55% of voters say they approve of Donald Trump’s job as president. Immigration and inflation remained voters’ top two concerns for the third month in a row. The poll also covers public opinion on the potential TikTok ban and the Israel-Hamas war. Download key results here.

“When people ask themselves the Reagan question, are you better off than you were four years ago, the answer increasingly is no,” said Mark Penn, Co-Director of the Harvard CAPS / Harris poll and Stagwell Chairman and CEO. “The sizable number of independent voters who are still undecided will determine this election, and they continue to be personally concerned about the border crisis and their grocery store prices.”

VOTERS SPLIT ON BIDEN’S STATE OF THE UNION BUT RACE NARROWS SLIGHTLY

  • 52% of voters have an unfavorable opinion of Biden’s State of the Union address.
  • 54% of voters, including 70% of non-watchers, think Biden did not address the issues that they and their families are concerned about in the speech.
  • 53% believe Biden delivered the speech effectively.
  • Trump is leading Biden by 2 points in the general head-to-head, down from 6 points last month. 20% of Independents say they are unsure.

VOTERS ARE FINE WITH “ILLEGAL” AND “UNDOCUMENTED” TERMS AS IMMIGRATION REMAINS TOP CONCERN

  • 73% of voters believe it is appropriate to refer to those who enter the U.S. without permission as “illegal immigrants”; 68% believe it is appropriate to refer to them as “undocumented immigrants.”
  • 63% of voters have heard of the story of murdered Georgia nursing student Laken Riley and 70% believe the case shows that the U.S. needs stricter immigration policies.

TIKTOK BAN IS DIVIDED BY GENERATION, NOT PARTY

  • 64% of voters believe the risks posed by TikTok to Americans’ personal security and the country’s national security outweigh the benefits of using TikTok for American brands and content creators (ages 18-24: 49%; ages 65+: 85%).
  • 65% of voters support the bill that would ban TikTok in the U.S. if ByteDance does not sell it to a U.S. government-approved buyer (ages 18-24: 43%; ages 65+: 84%).
  • Voters are most concerned about potential election interference from Russia (74%), China (73%), Iran (60%), Hamas (56%) and tech companies (51%).

ISRAEL SUPPORT REMAINS STRONG WITH SCHUMER CRITICIZED FOR CALL TO REMOVE NETANYAHU

  • Israel continues to receive high support, 79%, against Hamas.
  • 52% of voters say it was inappropriate for Senator Chuck Schumer to call for new elections in Israel to remove Benjamin Netanyahu; but 54% believe this criticism of Israel was fair.
  • Netanyahu has a higher net favorable rating in the U.S. (+2 points) than Schumer (-10 points).

The March Harvard CAPS / Harris poll survey was conducted online within the United States on March 20-21, 2024, among 2,111 registered voters by The Harris Poll and HarrisX.

Developed by a newly formed dedicated product team, Alchemy.Ai will rapidly transform GALE’s client offering with a suite of new products at the Stagwell (STGW) agency.

NEW YORK, March 21, 2024 /PRNewswire/ — GALE has revolutionized its offering with artificial intelligence at its core, ushering in a new era for the Business Agency.

Called Alchemy.Ai, GALE has created a private enterprise AI cloud platform – built from the ground up to comply with the agency’s ISO-27001 certification and developed by a dedicated product team of 50 specialists – that revolutionizes its offering for clients.

“The unveiling of Alchemy.Ai reshapes GALE as we know it, marking a massive shift in how we work and the democratization of data across all teams,” GALE CEO Brad Simms says. “When GALE was founded in 2014, we were first-to-market with our unique blend of creative and consultancy centered around data. While we’ve continued to build our model over the last decade to become one of the most celebrated agencies in North America, Alchemy.Ai is the most significant product update we’ve ever made.

“As an agency, our most important asset is our people. It’s why clients choose us. Alchemy.Ai enables our people to work smarter and faster, ultimately giving them more time to spend with clients.”

Trained on all aspects of data used at GALE, including both first-party and third-party data combined with world data, Alchemy.Ai reduces the time spent on critical tasks across all disciplines to help GALE’s almost 800 people work smarter, better and faster. In addition, it transforms agency processes by democratizing access to this information, regardless of department.

Going beyond standard generative AI functionality, Alchemy.Ai has a custom-built application layer with a bespoke UI, as well as additional capabilities for data visualization, enriched and customized algorithms, and search and discovery techniques. Team members will have access to the custom client environments built for the specific accounts they work on. The client environments serve as a one-stop shop for all the data and insights available on each particular client.

Alchemy.Ai has dedicated tools for core capabilities, including:

  • Strategy: 20% increase in efficiency for data ingestion and cleanup, fostering deeper collaboration between strategists and data scientists. This optimization allows for faster generation of high-quality business diagnostics and recommendations for clients.
  • Audience Insights: Democratizing access to GALE’s robust data environment will enable employees across all domains to query tens of thousands of variables from dozens of integrated sources within one platform using natural language. Reduced time to learn platforms, brief dedicated research teams, and await outputs will boost efficiency by 80%.
  • Media Planning: Integrating historical media performance data with media reach and consumption data will generate media plans 20% faster. Within one platform, media planners will be able to explore the relevance and weighting of channels and tactics from more angles at the same time, with the help of optimization algorithms and the ability to iterate on a range of custom constraints.
  • New Business: Leveraging a decade of archival documents to create an RFI response tool, trained on the voice of GALE’s CEO. This tool dramatically reduces the time and internal coordination necessary for new business responses from days to just 90 minutes.
  • CRM: Harnessing client data to create deeply custom audience segments and provide performance-based communications recommendations. This further elevates GALE’s best-in-class loyalty offering.
  • Operations: Simplifying administrative tasks and freeing up time, a concierge-style tool supports project delivery, timesheet tracking, and personalized responses to employee policy inquiries, such as healthcare coverage.
