Commenting on the opening of the new office FITCH CEO Lois Jacobs said, “While we’ve always had a close and beneficial relationship with our Russian clients serviced from our London hub, it made sense to be closer with an on-the-ground presence. Winning eight new Russian brands in the last year, FITCH is the agency of choice in this territory, and this market is both proving to be valuable and an exciting hotbed of innovation, development and creativity.”

Among FITCH’s well-known Russian clients there are such big name brands as Eldorado, Beeline, White Wind Digital, Sotovyi Mir, Sberbank and others.

Over the last three years, two more WPP-owned global branding agencies opened their physical offices in Moscow: The Brand Union back in 2010 and Landor last summer.
