Giles Ivey, UK MD, Collective says: “In a time of much consolidation in the market, we were approached by several companies last year enquiring as to our future plans. When we talked to Time Inc.UK we knew immediately that there were so many ways we could work together to produce amazing results for our clients. In an era where the ability to offer scale programmatically, to create and distribute content and also to offer experiential solutions is key, we’re so excited to be part of Time Inc.UK and be a part of delivering the highest quality and most coherent brand solutions in the UK market.”
