With this strategic merger, Dentsu Creative aims to further consolidate its market position in the DACH region, according to a press release issued on Tuesday.

"The operational merger of the teams in Germany, Austria and Switzerland - under the strong Dentsu Creative brand - is a clear commitment to our mission: we believe in the power of modern creativity in collaboration with our market-leading services in media and customer experience. The Dentsu Creative leadership team combines the core disciplines for modern and interdisciplinary creative communication solutions for all market-relevant channels," explains Karin Zimmermann, CEO of Dentsu DACH.

Karolin Hewelt, Rckt co-founder and Managing Director, adds: "With this significant expansion, we are setting a new benchmark for creative excellence in the DACH region. Thanks to the synergies within our team and the expansion of our network of locations, we can offer a wider range of innovative solutions and thus meet the requirements of our customers even better."
