DraftWorldwide has expanded its overseas operations with the purchase of Clouseau S.L., Barcelona, Spain.


The acquisition of the 16-person agency will complement DraftWorldwide's shop in Madrid which opened in 1987. The recent purchase gives DraftWorldwide 32 offices in Europe.

Joan Asensio and Francisco Segarra, both alumni of Barcelona's Vinizius Young & Rubicam, founded Clouseau S.L. three years ago. They will continue to run the agency while reporting to Juan Antonio Guerrero, managing director at DraftWorldwide Spain.


Clouseau's portfolio of clients includes Yamaha, Deutsche Bank's Dbnet24 online arm, Pirelli tires, content production company Media Park, health insurer Asisa, air conditioner manufacturer Daikin and the local City Hall fair, Fira of Barcelona.
