Critical Mass, a global digital agency, is merging its London operation with Agency Republic, a renowned London-based digital agency. The combined entity will take on the Critical Mass name, working from Critical Mass’ London offices in Covent Garden, led by Agency Republic Managing Director Matt Kwiecinski.
Additionally, Agency Republic Executive Creative Director Alistair Campbell, an award-winning creative leader, will lead the creative team in London as ECD. Campbell will join Critical Mass’ newly-formed Creative Council led by new Chief Creative Officer Conor Brady. Susanne Jones, former Managing Director of Critical Mass London, moves into a strategic role as SVP Client Partner.
Founded in 2001, Agency Republic works with top-tier global brands and has been named Digital Agency of the Year by Campaign and Marketing magazines four times.
Dianne Wilkins asserted, “With Agency Republic’s strong heritage of creative innovation and Critical Mass’ reputation for strong user experience and measurable results, our new, combined operation brings clients the ultimate partnership to create inspired digital experiences, greater efficiencies and proven effectiveness across global digital marketing efforts.”
Matt Kwiecinski added, “Clients today want creativity, along with operational scale and greater efficiencies to drive their businesses. Teaming up with Critical Mass allows us to realize our ambitions to be a digital transformation partner, giving our clients and our team a larger global footprint and greater operational resources. With similarly strong entrepreneurial cultures, we believe Critical Mass is the best partner to realize our vision to be the creatively-driven digital agency partner for our clients across the entire customer brand experience.”
From its office in Covent Garden, Critical Mass London serves global and local clients. The Agency Republic team will move into the Critical Mass London office effective 18th January.
Earlier in 2013, Critical Mass invested in growing its global network by opening a new regional hub office in Latin America. Today, Critical Mass also announced the appointment of two new global executives, Conor Brady and Chris Hayes, joining as CCO and CMO respectively. Both Conor and Chris will be on the global executive team and based in New York City.
