The agency group outperformed the industry growth average in what was the most successful financial year in SYZYGY's history to date. This success rests on three pillars: the expansion of existing client relationships, the acquisition of new clients such as Techniker Krankenkasse, Carlsberg, Carnival Cruises, MAN, McDonald’s, Berlitz and Samsung, and international expansion of the agency group. The principal demand for SYZYGY's portfolio of services relates to developing and expanding corporate platforms. Headcount climbed to more than 550 due to the company’s ongoing growth.
"Digital transformation has become significantly more urgent and more important for our clients. Digital media encourage direct contact between brand and consumer. Developing digital media that can play a key role in customer acquisition and building loyalty is crucial," comments Marco Seiler, founder and CEO of the SYZYGY Group.
