An important step for Oxyma in the Netherlands and a stepping stone towards the Middle East.
Rotterdam, the Netherlands, June 16th 2016. Strategic creative social media agency Your Social joins Oxyma. With this, Oxyma is taking an important step in realizing its ambition of becoming Europe’s first truly integrated omni-channel marketing agency. Your Social is a full service agency with offices in Breda and Dubai. It currently employs 32 social media strategists, analysts, social media managers and creative professionals.
Oxyma took a 100% interest in Your Social. In turn, the entrepreneurs of Your Social invest in Oxyma. In addition to running their own business, they will play an active role in the realization of joint Oxyma objectives. For several years, Your Social has a successful branch in Dubai. Therefore, the acquisition immediately creates an excellent springboard for Oxyma to a new market area with enormous potential.
The expansion with Your Social fits into Oxyma’s buy & build strategy announced late last year. Earlier this year, digital marketing performance specialist Oogst joined forces with Oxyma and with the previous acquisition of mobile agency aFrogleap, in 2013, Oxyma now consists of four companies. They will continue to operate semi-autonomous and under its own brand name. At the same time, all companies contribute in the further development of integrated omni-channel services and will work together towards one joint Oxyma identity step-by-step.
Oxyma CEO Ronald Morcus: “Our clients are interested in a business partner capable in supporting them with the creation of customer value across all channels, with one integrated approach. Oxyma has always been a cross-channel player with a focus on CRM and the so-called ‘owned media’ channels. With aFrogleap, Oogst and now Your Social, all three acknowledged top players in the Dutch market, we have added specialists in the mobile field and ‘paid media’ and ‘earned media’. Now, more than ever, we are able to offer our clients truly integrated omni-channel services. I’m extremely proud that with Your Social we have managed that three genuine entrepreneurs, but above all thirty top specialists have joined our forces.”
Patric Kint, co-founder of Your Social: “It has always been Your Social’s ambition to create real value -for our clients and their customers- using social media. That is why Oxyma’s motto “create customer value” is a perfect match. Our starting point is and will always be the customer. Be where the customers are. That is central to everything we do. At the same time we realize that social media is just one of the channels where the customers of our clients are exposed to a brand, products and services. At Your Social we always strive for consistency with other touch points to make sure our social media impact is as effective as possible. Joining forces with Oxyma enables us to be even more successful for our clients.”
Max Fackeldey, co-founder Your Social: “We are extremely happy and proud that now, as part of Oxyma, we can service our clients with an even more integrated and omni-channel approach. When taking an important step like this, it is also vital to have a good cultural fit and there is! We really look forward to working with our colleagues at Oxyma, aFrogleap and Oogst for our joint clients!”
