Red Urban prepares to move into Canada
Red Urban, an advertising agency based in London, England, will open a Toronto office in 2010. No staff have yet been announced. "We tell our clients that this is the time to invest, so we should too," said Mike Jefferies, managing director of Red Urban. "We believe Canada is the place to do it. There's great potential in the Canadian market. It rounds out our North American offerings. Red Urban has the energy and opportunity to be brave. We believe being small, nimble and carefully selective about the companies we choose to work with is a competitive advantage. Soon, Red Urban will provide top Canadian brand marketers with the creative business solutions they've been seeking, but aren't finding in other agencies." Red Urban, which is owned by Omnicom, has five existing offices in Europe and the US. Its clients include Guinness, Microsoft, Red Bull and AT&T.
