“At Ebony+Ivory, we have a strong belief in nurturing client relationships and delivering results, each and every time and with a dedicated and tight team on the ground in the Western Cape, this allows us to cut our cloth accordingly and adapt to the current markets,” she adds.
Mark Middleton, who has grown his Through the Line advertising career in client service at Ebony+Ivory has been appointed to grow the new regional office.
Being ambitious and entrepreneurial, he brings a drive for high pace delivery to clients, and with this energy, sheds some light on some of the people he has met within the Cape-based industry saying, “The individuals whom we have met are very creative thinkers and we look forward to seeing what opportunities and new thinking will come from co-creation with them.”
With the notable migration of people to the Western Cape recently Mark adds that the local team wants to make sure that Ebony+Ivory delivers top-class campaigns to brand teams and marketers for their companies when they move down here.
