T3 + Serviceplan Open Joint Office Space in NYC
AUSTIN, TX – Nov. 8, 2018 – Today, T3 and Serviceplan, two of the most successful independent agencies in the world, are joining forces in a mutually beneficial partnership that will extend T3’s footprint globally and extend Serviceplan’s footprint to the U.S. As part of this partnership, the agencies will be sharing an office space in New York City in Midtown West opening today, November 8.
Both companies are privately owned and managed by second-generation executives. The firms will retain their independence while collaborating on new business opportunities.
“As independent agencies, we have the freedom to service our clients without the barriers of a holding company, which we believe is the way of the future,” states Ben Gaddis, President of T3. “We want to continue to put our clients at the foreground of what we do and are excited to extend our capabilities with this partnership.”
Serviceplan Group CEO Florian Haller added, “We are excited about our future partnership with T3 as we grow our footprint in the U.S. We are confident we will be able to make great strides internally, through the collaboration, and externally with the great resources that T3 can provide for us as we conversely help build their global presence.”
This innovative partnership will also allow career development opportunities for the agencies through an exchange program that invites employees from both companies to work abroad. Elements of this partnership allow for each company to truly benefit from their regional and global strengths.
