The Ridley Scott Creative Group is opening an office in Amsterdam, as the global transmedia group looks to explore further European territory.
Against the backdrop of Brexit, the agency - which is headquartered in London - aims to strengthen its relationship with Europe and hopes to create opportunities for new and existing European clients.
The former executive producer of Weiden + Kennedy, Ross Plummer, will take up the role of managing director. He will be joined by Bart Hendrikx who has been appointed as business director. He was most recently managing director of B.A.D. Data BV consultancy firm.
The Ridley Scott Creative Group emerged after the filmaker, Ridley Scott, brought together all of the companies aligned with his studio, RSA Films, into one network.
Directed by Luke Scott, Ridley's son, the group comprises the music video production company Black Dog Films; film and TV production company Scott Free; Darling Films; mixed media tech agency RSA VR; and flagship production company RSA Films.
Commenting on the opening of the Amsterdam office, Ridley Scott said: “Last year we brought together our talent, capabilities, and creative resources under the Ridley Scott Creative Group. Now I’m delighted to open a new home for the Group in Amsterdam.
"I have every confidence in the great team we’ve assembled, and I’m looking forward to exploring all the possible partnerships and creative opportunities available to us throughout Amsterdam and the rest of Europe.”
Ridley's son Luke, the chief executive of the company, said: “Some of our most exciting recent projects have come through our partnerships with agencies in Europe.
"And whilst our team continues with the excellent work in our respective global offices – we’re thrilled to be in a position to further promote our production capabilities throughout Europe.”
