iZettle, the Swedish financial technology company, have added AMV BBDO to their global agency roster following a hotly contested pitch versus BBH, Fallon & Brave.
Last year, iZettle were voted as one of the 25 fastest growing companies in Europe in the Financial Times. They are primarily known for revolutionising mobile payment with the world’s first mini chip card reader and software for mobile devices. They are also becoming increasingly known for sales reporting tools and financing solutions. Hundreds of thousands of businesses across Europe use iZettle’s products and services – everything from some of the coolest boutique chains, to market stalls and sole traders.
Edgar Rouwenhorst, iZettle CMO, says: “As one of the 25 fastest growing companies in the EU last year, we recognise that the timing is right for us to bolster our strategic and creative approach with a global partner the scale and quality of AMV BBDO, to help us sustain our growth pace and build our reputation as the best friend of small businesses. The only downside is that they eat us out of cinnamon buns in every meeting.”
Chris Taggart, AMV BBDO COO adds: “The team at iZettle have a voracious appetite for innovation and they are passionate champions of entrepreneurs with 1,000 small businesses joining the iZettle community every working day. AMV BDDO are incredibly excited to be part of this journey. They are also fantastically well dressed, so we are going to have to raise our sartorial game to keep pace with them.”
