MediaMonks, the largest creative digital production company in Europe, celebrates its 2.5 year anniversary on British soil with a new office at 23 Heddon Street, rented from her Majesty the Queen herself.
MediaMonks opened their European HQ in Amsterdam in 2001 and have grown to 160 full-time employees to support the international expansion to London and New York.
Victor Knaap, Founder and CEO of MediaMonks said: “It’s great to be in London- the mecca of European advertising. For the last two and a half years we have been known as a trustworthy production partner, and now we are ready to take our London business on to the next phase. I believe our focus on building solid agency-brand relationships with our agency partners is a model that creates the most value for everyone involved. We’re not just here to pick up a few sexy briefs now and again; we’re here to stay.”
MediaMonks London is responsible for 25% of the company’s total revenue. The UK team works on major international projects for long-term clients such as AMV BBDO, BBH, Mother, Saatchi & Saatchi, Wieden+Kennedy and Workclub.
Since 2010 MediaMonks London has been led by executive producer Joris Pol, who has worked at the agency for years. The office upgrade proved necessary to meet the growing demand for creative and development resources. As always, MediaMonks is looking for digital talent to join their ever expanding team of experts.
Joris Pol, MediaMonks London said: “We are fortunate to work with agencies that use the full scope of our expertise in making better digital campaigns. Being able to support our partners, from start to finish,creates the most value for them: we come in to help out with the concept and then pick up the production of all the digital assets.To support that growing need we’re always on the lookout for talent that can translate these big ideas, into a great digital work. “
Now, after 2.5 years of successful operations, royal style celebrations are due. The anniversary party is planned for August 2012. Stay tuned.
