Global search marketing agency Ayima has acquired QuickThink Media (QTM), specialists in social media, retargeting and display advertising.
The acquisition is aimed at diversifying Ayima’s range of services and reaching new industry segments where targeted advertising is key to commercial success, according to Ayima’s chief executive officer, Mike Jacobson.
“We are experiencing huge growth in 2016. Prior to the acquisition we were already projecting a 50 per cent revenue increase for the year and had significantly increased headcount in Raleigh, New York, Vancouver and our new London headquarters. This merger brings an immediate injection of great digital talent, and a fresh opportunity for us to provide businesses with an innovative digital marketing approach that cuts to the heart of where their customers are online,” said Jacobson.
Having worked closely alongside QTM for many years, Ayima’s chief operating officer, Mike Nott, believes the move will prove beneficial for all involved.
He said: "The QTM team have achieved unprecedented results for their clients, making this is a perfect addition to our SEO and PPC offering. We’ve always been greatly impressed with the knowledge and analytical abilities they’ve demonstrated and are extremely excited to welcome them as part of Ayima.”
This move sees Ayima increase in size to almost 150 people worldwide across five offices.
