MAGNET Global Network, an international association of independent advertising agencies, is happy to welcome BeRepublic to its membership ranks. The agency, with offices in Madrid, Barcelona and Andorra, Spain, is a new media, interactive advertising agency and a leader in the development of online and mobile marketing.
BeRepublic was founded in 2006 by owners Jordi Sanllehi and Gerard Olive who, together with their team of senior managers, have amassed extensive experience in all channels for online and mobile marketing and advertising. In just six years, the agency has grown from a handful of employees to more than 50 in three offices. The agency is organized into three business divisions: BeRepublic Networks, BeRepublic Mobile and BeRepublic Media. They produce creative online campaigns and digital products, and have specialists in every area, from creative strategy to advertising, e-commerce, app development, SEO and SMO, marketing, media and more.
“BeRepublic was founded as an interactive agency, and we believe that’s part of what makes us different,” says Sanllehi. “We didn’t start as an offline agency and evolve into online and interactive. Technology is part of our DNA, which we believe is a tremendous strength that’s increasingly critical for reaching today’s consumers online and on the go.”
While the majority of BeRepublic’s clients are based in Spain or target the Spanish market, they also work with companies in Latin America as well as those doing business worldwide. Among its clients are Danone, Jack Daniel’s, Prada, Barceló Hotels & Resorts, Bacardi, Pullmantur Cruises and Nespresso.
While BeRepublic researched other international networks, they felt MAGNET provided the best complement to their firm. “We believe MAGNET members will enhance our capability to compete in the global market with other multinational agencies,” said Sanllehi. “We look forward to working with our MAGNET colleagues to share and leverage our collective talents to benefit all of our clients.”
