In a move to bolster its position in Russia, Wunderman has acquired Moscow-based digital shop Actis Systems.
Actis has completed more than 700 commercial Internet projects in 26 countries for clients such as Microsoft, Canon, MTV and VimpelCom. It employs more than 120 people in digital services, making it one of the largest digital agencies in the region. The company has also been recognized for its work by both the Cannes Lions International Advertising Festival and London International Awards.
“The addition of Actis Systems to our network further opens the door to Russia for our clients by providing them with 10 years worth of experience in dynamic Web strategy, design and platform development resources, which are required in the modern Russian marketplace,” said Daniel Morel, chairman and CEO of Wunderman, in a statement.
Wunderman is a division of WPP’s network and a member of Young and Rubicam brands.
