Social Media Agency is Among Market Leaders in Vietnam

HO CHI MINH CITY - GroupM, the world's leading global media investment management operation, announced that it has agreed to acquire a majority interest in ClickMedia, a leading social media marketing agency in Vietnam.

The announcement was made jointly by Mark Patterson GroupM CEO, Asia Pacific and Chairman, China, and Hai Ha, Managing Director and founder of ClickMedia.

The firm provides social media strategy, campaign strategy, implementation, as well as social media listening, crisis prevention and management. The company's client roster includes blue-chip marketers such as Unilever, FrieslandCampina, Piaggio, and Estee Lauder.
