S4Capital plc (SFOR.L), established in May 2018 by Sir Martin Sorrell, has entered into exclusivity in relation to a merger of Dare.Win with MediaMonks, S4Capital’s digital content practice. The merger expands MediaMonks’ geographical presence to France, Europe’s third largest advertising market.
Wale Gbadamosi-Oyekanmi, CEO and Founder of Dare.Win: “We’ve long admired MediaMonks’ innovative productions and successes around the world. This merger is a great opportunity for us to produce even greater work that will help our clients reach their business goals in a better, faster and more data-driven way. Our teams couldn’t be more excited about joining S4Capital’s new era model.”.
S4Capital Executive Chairman Sir Martin Sorrell: “We are delighted to welcome Wale and his colleagues to S4Capital. France is a very important market, always punching over its weight globally, with 31 multinationals in the Fortune 500. The advertising industry there has traditionally been dominated by the two powerful French Holding Companies, but Dare.Win is one of a new breed of agencies disrupting that model and we look forward to continuing down that path!”.
