OUR NETWORK

We believe that technology companies need specialist agencies. That's why we've created a global network made up of three of the world's leading agencies: Harvard (EMEA), Method (US) and IN.FOM(APAC).

WE BUILT OUT A GLOBAL PROPOSITION OF WORLD-CLASS, BEST-OF-BREED AGENCIES THAT OPERATE FROM THREE GLOBAL HUBS

Within Chime we’ve always believed that the best work is done by super-engaged specialists with their finger on the pulse of their industry and a forensic understanding of the countries and continents within which they operate.

This approach has been particularly effective in the tech industry, where we have genuine market-leading consultancies in the shape of Harvard in the UK and Europe, our sister agency Method in North America, and IN.FOM, which operates across APAC.

Our view is that most global consultancies worry about geographical reach before they worry about a brilliant and tailored offering to clients. We’re completely the opposite.

That’s why we’ve built out a global proposition of world-class, best-of-breed agencies that operate from three global hubs – London, San Francisco and Singapore. These specialists provide great depth of experience across all marketing disciplines, from customer advocacy to cutting-edge creative, from planning and strategy to prepping for IPOs. And when necessary we’ll bring in partners from other geographies to complement these three hubs.

This is all underpinned by the fact we are owned by Chime, a 3,000-person global comms and sports marketing network that operates in all major markets.
