Performance marketing agency QUISMA opens new European offices

9 September, 2010

MUNICH — QUISMA, Germany's leading performance marketing agency is opening offices in eastern and western Europe thus driving its ambition to be the number one performance network in Europe.

Besides the already successful offices in Munich, Hamburg, Düsseldorf and Frankfurt, as well as offices set up in Vienna and Zurich 18 months ago, QUISMA continues to accelerate its international business. The focus in Eastern Europe is on Poland and the Czech Republic and in Western Europe, on the Netherlands, France, Spain and Italy. QUISMA is driving the requirement of transparency in conjunction with a performance based pricing model. QUISMA will become a stand-alone network within GroupM.

"Hub and Spoke" as a recipe for success

The general approach of the international agency network is the idea of "Hub and Spoke" with which QUISMA has gained very good experiences for a long time. The ability to deliver bespoke services on the ground with the benefits of central co-ordination. The QUISMA services offered on-site are all clearly performance based with display, search and affiliate marketing, whereby the concentration on performance display advertising lies with a specialisation in retargeting.

"Online business doesn't stop at national borders, so we want to expand further with new offices in eastern and western Europe and this also means we can be closer to our increasingly international client base“, explained Ronald Paul, QUISMA CEO. "With this step we are installing the QUISMA brand all over Europe and responding to the ever increasing significance of the performance sector in the media business. So as a group, we are the best equipped for the digital marketing business of the future.“

“The ability to offer our clients not only bespoke Performance Marketing in the various countries in EMEA but to also offer a pan-European solution where appropriate will be a real competitive advantage” said Rupert Day; Global Chief Operating Officer of GroupM.
