The Havas Group, one of the world’s largest marketing communication companies, today announces that Indonesian PR agency, Image Dynamics, has joined its Havas Village Jakarta team as part of an affiliate partnership agreement. The new partnership rounds out the 360 offering for Havas that comprises 300 people in Jakarta across media, creative, data, digital, and now PR and activation.
Image Dynamics started in 2004 with only two consultants, co-founders Harry Tumengkol and Trishi Setiayu, servicing a local pharma company Jamu Puspo and a local commercial bank, PaninBank, as their first clients. Today, Image Dynamics team is now 25 people and has been partnering with the Havas teams on a number of current client remits and new business opportunities. To foster further collaboration they have moved to co-locate in the Havas Village in Jakarta.
Additionally, to support the Havas regional strategy for PR, Image Dynamics will become an official affiliate partner of the Red Agency APAC Group, which is the Havas Group’s leading PR, social and experiential network in the region, and further develops its Asia presence.
Agus Sudradjat, Chairman of Havas Jakarta, said: “We have been looking for a strategic PR partner for some time and we have recently started to work regularly with the Image Dynamics team and have found them to be a perfect fit for us. We think the same way, have the same values and enjoy working together. Bringing their team into our Village will make us stronger, providing a greater and more holistic value offer to clients. We look forward to delivering a successful partnership.”
Harry Tumengkol, Partner and Co-Founder of Image Dynamics, said: “For 14 years we have been deeply proud of our achievements and status as an independent local PR firm. This partnership is a significant step in taking Image Dynamics to another level and become part of a global group. Our partnership with one of APAC’s leading and most awarded PR firms, Red Agency, will take us to another level of pride and achievements. Image Dynamics will now have the resources and network support needed to grow the company even stronger and tap into a much wider market that will make it stronger and a genuine leader in the Indonesian PR industry.”
James Wright, Group CEO, Red Agency APAC, said: “Harry, Trishi and the team at Image Dynamics are a great cultural fit for us, they have a great track record, fantastic clients and an ambition to deliver the type of work that we are known for. We will be working closely with them in the coming months to further integrate them into our group and bring them across our market leading methodologies, processes and thinking.”
