Digital Agency Omobono Expands Into the U.S.
Omobono, the digital agency for global business brands, has opened its first US office in the heart of Chicago’s thriving business district. Omobono brings together a mix of business expertise, creativity and technical skill to help clients such as Ingredion, JLL and Shell define their brand propositions, increase competitive advantage, and enhance relationships with employees and customers.
The agency, which is headquartered in Cambridge in the UK, attributes its rapid growth to marketers’ increased recognition of the strategic importance of digital marketing in their businesses.
Omobono’s Chicago-based clients include JLL, a global professional services and investment management firm offering specialized real estate services.
“We’re delighted to be working with Omobono to push the envelope on our marketing and communications strategy. We’ve been impressed by their lengthy track record in the B2B marketing space and now with their presence in Chicago, we’ve developed an even stronger relationship,” said Jill Kouri, Chief Marketing Officer, JLL Americas.
Omobono USA Managing Director Tom Kelly said, “Since opening our first US office in Chicago, we have hit the ground running, working with new clients on projects at the cutting edge of digital communications in B2B. We are excited to be here and looking forward to all that 2015 has in store.”
Kelly has been with Omobono for more than 5 years and has relocated from the UK to take on his new US role. He has a broad range of digital marketing experience and expertise, and has worked with clients in sectors including professional services, aviation, education and finance.
Working with Kelly is Senior Strategist and native Chicagoan Philip Black, who joins from B2B marketing firm Avenue where he headed up early-stage strategy as part of the firm’s leadership team. A 16-year industry veteran, Philip founded and led brand strategy and design firm TripleSpoke prior to joining Avenue. Also on the team is Senior Project Manager Becca Tomlinson, who relocated from Omobono in the UK. Becca has significant experience driving marketing campaigns through global organizations. The firm is currently hiring for other roles in creative and account management.
