Comprising over 1,000 specialists, DigitasLBi Commerce will operate on a global scale with hubs in North America, the UK, France, Nordics, Germany and Asia Pacific. It will leverage 6,700 DigitasLBi colleagues across 40 offices in 26 countries to create highly targeted connected commerce experiences that resonate with people wherever they are the world.

Jon Russell, Global Head of Managed Services and Application Support will also join the leadership team, integrating these services into the proposition.
