2015 was the year when growth returned, with the business continuing to refocus on large and profitable accounts and align the Group in terms of strategic objectives, financial goals and product offering.

  • New client wins with attractive blue chip, multinational players such as Estee Lauder, Euromaster and Dubai Parks & Resorts, providing a strong platform for future growth. In addition, NetBooster is growing with existing clients such as Deutsche Telekom, by being a full service provider for them.
  • By offering all-performance channels on an international level, NetBooster is the ideal partner to help blue-chip and multinational players roll-out their digital strategy. As a result, NetBooster is challenging the big media agencies in this space, as they are just starting to focus on digital performance.
  • In February 2016, NetBooster announced a new strategic partnership deal with PM Digital in the U.S., thereby forming one of the biggest independent performance agency networks in the world (25+ offices, 800 employees and managing over $500m media spend) . This strategic partnership is enabling the two agencies to work alongside one another; leveraging their powerful international footprint, respective product offerings, employees and technology to the benefit of their clients.

NetBooster's CEO, Tim Ringel, commented: " I am delighted to announce that 2015 was the best ever year in NetBooster's history both from a business and financial perspective. NetBooster has posted landmark results in 2015 for the second year in a row, a product of the combined efforts of all our committed, creative and hard-working colleagues. The platform we have built over the last three years has now put us in a position to evolve from being a Europe focused international player into a global digital media performance agency. We see that clients come to us because we're transparent, efficient and client centric and can deliver the service that they want. I'm proud of what has been achieved and believe our most exciting years lie ahead of us. "
