Publicis Acquires Swiss Digital Agency, Nemos.

Publicis Groupe is continuing its global expansion with the acquisition of Swiss digital agency, Nemos

clickz_ukandeu.gifPublicis Groupe is continuing its global expansion with the acquisition of Swiss digital agency, Nemos. The Zurich-based outfit, which offers digital creative, Web site development, and mobile and social media marketing, will be integrated with the group’s existing local digital operation, Publicis Modem Switzerland. Nemos’s client roster includes European brands such as Carlsberg and Movenpick.

Despite this continued investment in established European markets, Publicis says it is on track in its aim to generate 25 percent of revenues from emerging markets by 2012, and the same portion from its digital properties by 2010.

The firm acquired Brazilian digital agency, Tribal, in November of last year, followed shortly by Chinese outfit W&K Communications in November. It also expanded into Korea with the acquisition of South-Korean full-service digital agency, Portfolio, bringing the total Publicis Modem global staff to approximately 1,200 across 40 offices.

Pascal Urscheler, Nemos’ former CEO, and Marion Marxer, senior brand director of Publicis in Zurich will co-lead the new Publicis Modem Switzerland, reporting to Freddy Collioud, president of Publicis Switzerland. Nemos’ 10 staff will be retained. Terms of the deal were not disclosed.
