The new holding PLC, will consolidate the respective company’s local market leadership position and their technology talent base into an integrated digital offering providing each client-base with end-to-end digital services that will support them in their digital transformation journeys. The new group is a result of the converged concepts of the four founders, to strengthening the local market offering whilst embarking on an exciting roadmap to expand the group’s operations further in the Middle East with immediate effect.
“We believe that the new holding PLC will serve as a platform for more firms to join this journey, believe in their potential and attain their goals on an international stage. We are determined to keep extending our capabilities across the regions we operate in, partnering up with iconic brands in this increasingly always-on digital era” they concluded.
ANCHOVY plc, Malta’s leading digital agency enjoying international recognition, disrupted the space years ago by establishing operations in the Middle East.
