Tim Ringel, chief executive of NetBooster Group commented: “I'm thrilled to welcome Matt, Chris and the entire 4Ps team on board. Their decision shows that NetBooster is the perfect home for entrepreneurs of best in class agencies to outgrow their market limitations and join the mission of building a real global independent player in our industry. The combination of NetBooster UK and 4Ps puts us at the forefront of the UK performance marketing space and this will result in growth from UK clients but also international customers running their European operations out of the UK.”
