WPP’s GroupM, and Zer, a Koç Group Company, have formed a partnership to launch new digital media agency Ingage. Ingage will service the rapidly growing demand for digital marketing and offer clients agile solutions that bring together GroupM’s global innovative communications services with Zer’s industrial and technological expertise.
The joint venture, fully backed by WPP and Koç Group, will be powered by GroupM’s expertise as the world’s largest media investment group, and build on the award-winning procurement, digital and technology services of Zer, to provide strategy-led digital marketing services in Turkey.
Zer General Manager Aykut Özüner said: “We at Koç Group are committed to expanding the current digital marketing business handled by Zer with this new partnership. Ingage will draw on Zer’s industry expertise to broaden its experience in the retail, durable goods, automotive, finance, local communication, and e-commerce industries.”
