New York/Cologne, September 2021 – Oliver Schrott Kommunikation is expanding its footprint even further with a view to the future. The agency is joining Omnicom, one of the leading international networks for marketing and communications. OSK will operate as a standalone brand within the Omnicom Public Relations Group, the association of world-leading public relations and specialist agencies within the Omnicom Group.
In 2022, the network will become the global agency partner for Mercedes-Benz marketing and communications. “We’re delighted to be part of Team X, an exclusive group of agencies that will work together to develop and shape communications for the world’s most valuable car brand,” says agency founder, Oliver Schrott, who continues to lead OSK as President and CEO together with long-standing joint Managing Directors Michael Kemme and Marc Wolter.
With Omnicom as its partner, OSK aims to develop its already broad-based service offer. This includes further internationalization of the agency beyond its existing overseas operations in New York and Beijing. Oliver Schrott: “We want our agency to perform even better for our clients, and to cover an even wider range of specialisms. Omnicom offers us every opportunity to achieve that. Indeed, this is what led to our decision to pursue a future together, to make OSK even stronger and to continue our success story over the longer term.”
