RIFF, an European based digital marketing agency, has opened up two new offices in Asia – namely in Singapore and Jakarta.
Speaking to Marketing on the move, Martijn van den Bemd, managing director RIFF APAC, said that the agency will be hiring 20 new employees in APAC within the next 12 months to bolster the new offices in Singapore and Jakarta. In particular, the agency will be focusing on training and coaching local hires in Indonesia, and educating them on digital marketing. Currently, the Indonesia office has around eight staff, while the Singapore office has a headcount of six people.
When asked why Singapore was chosen to launch the new office, van den Bemd explained that many of the agency’s clients were operating in this market. As demand for its services grew in the Southeast Asia region, setting up in Singapore made sense. Moreover, Singapore possesses a talented and highly educated workforce with the right work ethic that aligns with the agency’s values.
As a performance driven agency, the RIFF looks to help optimise the revenues of its clients and looks to stand out among other digital agencies which are more centred on branding and creative work. As such, it is excited to open our first two new offices in APAC and help businesses in APAC with their digital success, van den Bemd added.
