Digital Media Industry Consolidation in Asia

Major international advertising agencies such as Publicis, WPP, Omnicorp, etc. have acquired many smaller fishes in Asia and more specifically in India and China during last 4 years. Following is a chronological list of M&A that has happened in India and other parts of Asia since 2006. I presented this report to a guest faculty in my school (who's also the CEO of a very popular international ad agency) and he found it quite insightful!


From a Mint article published in early 2007:
Some of the recent international heads, who have unveiled their digital objectives in national and international interviews, include WPP’s Global Strategy Director Mark Read; Havas CEO Fernando Rodes Vila; Publicis Worldwide COO Robert Pinder; Aegis Media Asia CEO Richard Halmarick; IPG’s Steve Gatfield (CEO, Lowe Worldwide); and Omnicom Vice Chairman Michael Birkin.
