The San Francisco office will help serve the rapid growth of Acquity Group’s client base throughout the Western U.S.
Acquity Group, a world-leading multi-channel commerce and digital marketing company, announced today that it has expanded its California presence by opening a new office in San Francisco. The office will help accommodate the demand for Acquity Group services in the Western U.S. and complement its existing California offices in L.A. and Irvine.
The prime Bay-area location of the office will play a key role in the company’s continued growth. San Francisco is a globally-recognized center for technology and innovation, and a thriving market for creative and innovative technology talent. Acquity Group has a strong core team already in place in San Francisco, hired on from companies like Accenture, Cignex and Sapient. The team boasts experience across diverse backgrounds in design, information architecture, digital strategy planning, and technology. “We have had remarkable growth in the West, particularly in San Francisco, delivering highly effective digital solutions and creative strategies for clients in the area” said Andy Peebler, Acquity Group Senior Vice President responsible for Acquity Group’s Western Region.
“San Francisco serves as a hub for innovation and is an ideal location for Acquity Group to build and grow within the region. This creative energy, in conjunction with our strong presence in Southern California, gives us access to some of the best interactive talent in the industry. We expect to invest significantly in expanding our San Francisco team, with current openings across all our practice areas.”
At the forefront of innovation, Acquity Group’s cross-channel solutions help some of the nation’s leading companies extend their brands to new markets and digital mediums, strengthening communication with customers, prospects and vendors.
Current and former Acquity Group clients in the Bay Area include companies like Leapfrog and Simpson Manufacturing. The address for the new San Francisco office is 575 Market Street, San Francisco, CA 94105.
