The world’s largest partnership of independent agencies, PROI Worldwide, has added KISS to its global network of integrated communications companies; PROI Worldwide has a net fee income exceeding US$615 million. This allows us to provide our clients with access to a global agency network, including partners in the leading independent agencies in 100 cities across 5 continents, offering local knowledge to deliver global results via international marketing and PR campaigns.
Andreas Fischer Appelt, the German based Global Chairman of PROI Worldwide and owner of fischerAppelt, one of Germany’s largest communications groups, stated that “KISS has a similar ethos to many agencies in our partnership and we felt they were a good fit for the group. We also liked the sector focus the agency has in science and technology, and its location in the UK’s science and technology centres – Cambridge and Oxford.”
Our CEO, Simon Fryer said, “We work with many international clients and ambitious companies that are keen to scale up around the world. The last twelve months, in particular, has seen a growing demand for campaigns with a global reach so it is a natural next step for KISS to become part of PROI Worldwide and to take advantage of the services the partner offices can provide. This enables us to gain local insight and access global communications expertise to help our clients deliver on their ambitious objectives.
“Becoming part of the oldest and largest global partnership of independent agencies is very exciting and we look forward to working with PROI and our other partner agencies.”
