Ebiquity acquires Faulkner Media Management in Australia
Ebiquity, the global marketing performance management specialists, announces today its acquisition of Faulkner Media Management (Faulkner), the leading media benchmarking consultants in Australia.
FMM was founded in 1988 by Eric Faulkner and employs 25 people based in its Sydney office providing media auditing and consultancy services to over 70 clients in Australia, New Zealand and across SE Asia.
As well as continuing to help local advertisers, Eric and his team will join Ebiquity’s global network and work with clients on an international basis to review and benchmark media agency performance to help improve the efficiency and effectiveness of their campaigns.
The deal strenghtens Ebiquity’s offering in the region where they already provide advertising monitoring and insight services from their Sydney office and reputation analysis and stakeholder research through their Echo Research subsidiary in Singapore.
“The addition of the FMM team to the network further strengthens our network and enables us to offer a consistent approach to international benchmarking with high quality local expertise and data.“
