MOVE SIGNALS STRONG GROWTH AND CLIENT OPPORTUNITY IN CONTINENTAL EUROPE

FRANKFURT / MAIN, GERMANY — July 30, 2019 — WE Communications (WE), a leading global communications agency, today announced it has expanded its presence in Germany through the opening of a second office in Frankfurt, increasing its global footprint in continental Europe. The expansion is in response to the growing demand for regional communications from both existing and newly signed clients.

The Frankfurt office is comprised of a team with deep experience in health, consumer, technology and analytics, serving as an integral hub to WE’s new and existing accounts. The office and new team of five will report to Germany’s vice president and general manager, Bianca Eichner.

“Frankfurt is one of the fastest growing cities in the Rhine-Main region and it is the next logical place for us to open an office,” said Eichner. “We can better serve clients, as well as attract a wider pool of talent in a growing innovation hub that has an increasing number of businesses with EMEA and global ambitions.”

WE Frankfurt’s five new employees include Constantin Steiner, data analyst; Elena Schad, senior account executive, Health and Rebekka Zeeb, account executive, Health. In September, the team will add a senior account manager and a medical writer.

In October, WE is adding new senior talent to its Munich base, where it already houses a team of 20 integrated communications experts. Both a new head of health and a creative director/scientific lead will onboard this September. WE’s newly bolstered German presence will offer client services spanning from traditional media influencer relations to creative, content, social, digital and analytics.

“WE’s expansion into Frankfurt reflects our growing client needs as well as our continued commitment to Germany,” said Kass Sells, global chief operating officer and president, international. “The opportunity to exceed the needs of our clients and team members in Frankfurt, along with the chance to create break-through work that drives positive business impact is limitless. It is a very exciting time to be in Frankfurt.”

In 2018, WE Germany introduced PLUS Germany, a collection of expert agencies that expands its ability to offer clients a full spectrum of communications capabilities from across the media ecosystem, including paid, owned, earned, social, experiential and search. The WE Frankfurt team in Bockenheim shares offices with experiential partner, Jazzunique..
