leave a comment »

SINGAPORE/PRNewswire/ — Green Key Technologies, provider of voice software designed specifically for traders and brokers, announced the expansion of their user base into Asia.

The trade was an FFA (Forward Freight Agreement) with Olam International on one side and the Singapore branch of London IDB, Freight Investor Services (FIS) on the other.

“As a trader, Green Key’s voice software gives me instant access to the brokers I need to speak with across global markets. The application took seconds to download and I was talking with my FIS brokers almost immediately,”Sean Deschamps, Trader for Olam said.

“Green Key’s Soft Turret is easy to use and the voice quality is great. I was impressed with the speed of connectivity and am happy to have done the first Asian trade over Green Key,” James Stoy, Broker for FIS said.

TBWA Appoints Chris Garbutt As Global Creative President

leave a comment »

— Garbutt will oversee creative across TBWA’s global accounts and will lead the New York office as Chief Creative Officer

NEW YORK/PRNewswire/ — TBWA Worldwide today announced the appointment of renowned creative director Chris Garbutt as its new Global Creative President. No stranger to the TBWA network, Garbutt started his career at TBWA\Hunt\Lascaris in South Africa before moving to TBWA\Paris to become its Executive Creative Director, where he produced some of the agency’s most celebrated work for Nissan, Absolut, PlayStation, Canderel and Pedigree.

Garbutt’s appointment continues the network’s push for senior creative talent. TBWA has in recent months hiredNils Andersson to oversee creative in Greater China and Gary McCreadie and Wesley Hawes in Sydney, while also elevating Stephen Butler to the role of Chief Creative Officer in Los Angeles in 2014.

Commenting on the appointment, TBWA Worldwide CEO Troy Ruhanen said:

“Our client partners want and deserve the very best minds on their business, and our people throughout the network want to be inspired everyday by creative leaders who are keen on making the unreal real. Chris is one such leader, and not having him wasn’t an option in my book – he is one of ours. The richness and volume of his work speaks for itself, and his leadership and thinking will ensure TBWA remains The Disruption Company.”

As Global Creative President, Garbutt will oversee the creative direction for TBWA’s hallmark global clients including Nissan, McDonalds, Adidas, Pernod Ricard, and more, while also partnering with newly-appointed CEORob Schwartz to helm the network’s flagship New York office in the role of Chief Creative Officer. Garbutt will report to Ruhanen and to Worldwide Creative Director, John Hunt.

Garbutt had this to say:

“TBWA is an iconic brand, and the best work they do always sets the bar for others to follow. Today, brands need disruptive, world changing and transformative ideas more than ever. I believe with the talent and commitment of the teams across the global network, we can truly achieve greatness for our clients. I am so excited to join a band of creative mavericks with a burning ambition to rewrite the rules. When a culture is as aligned and motivated as TBWA, anything’s possible.”

Rob Schwartz commented: “I’ve long known and long admired Chris’ work – He’s truly one of the working legends in our business today. I’m really looking forward to partnering with him to make our New York office the center of strategic and creative excellence for the TBWA network.”

Garbutt, 43, will join TBWA from Ogilvy & Mather East in New York, where he has served as Chief Creative Officer. As CCO, his oversight and leadership spanned all agency disciplines and he is credited with award-winning campaigns for IBM and Coca-Cola. Prior to joining Ogilvy in New York, Garbutt was Chief Creative Officer of the network’s Paris office, where he helped to propel the agency to new creative heights producing global campaigns for Perrier, Louis Vuitton and Google.

In 2014, Advertising Age named Garbutt one of the most awarded Chief Creative Officers in the world. He has won nearly 100 Cannes Lions in his career, including three Grand Prix awards, as well as top honors in The One Show, D&AD, Webbys, Clios and Art Director’s Club awards.

A native of Cape Town, South Africa, Garbutt began his career in Johannesburg as a Creative Director at TBWA\Hunt\Lascaris, where he spent four years working under the tutelage of then-CCO, John Hunt.

“I cannot be more delighted with Chris’ appointment,” said Hunt. “Having worked with him for so many years, it’s been a rare privilege to watch his meteoric rise. It’s not often a talent this unique is wrapped in such a decent and hardworking human being, and since no one represents TBWA’s DNA better, it’s the perfect time for him to come home.”

US Wireless Market to Add 100 Million Subscribers by 2020 says Strategy Analytics

leave a comment »

— T-Mobile and Sprint to Gain Ground but Not Undermine AT&T and Verizon Wireless Dominance

BOSTON/PRNewswire/ — The US wireless market has entered into a new phase, evolving from voice to text to data and now to constant connectivity and what you do with it—according to the Strategy Analytics Wireless Operator Strategies (WOS) service report, “US Wireless Outlook: Can T-Mobile and Sprint Disrupt AT&T and Verizon Wireless?”. With fewer new subscribers to sign up for wireless service for the first time, carriers have focused on transitioning consumers to smartphones, 4G LTE and monetizing their data use. Now carriers are focusing on adding value and content as they jockey for position.

“US Wireless Market Outlook 2015-2020″ http://bit.ly/1GKbXMc

Key findings from the reports:

  • While growth has slowed, nearly 100 million wireless connections (including consumer electronics connections but excluding M2M) will be added through 2020, reaching a 128% penetration rate (of the US population).
  • Mobile service revenue will grow 0.2% to reach US$197 billion in 2020, up slightly from $195 billion in 2015, spurred by a 5.7% growth in prepaid service revenue and 3.3% growth in data revenues.
  • Verizon Wireless and AT&T are diversifying their revenue streams but will remain strong leaders, even as challengers T-Mobile USA and Sprint gain ground.
  • No major shifts are anticipated in market share among the top 4 carriers, as T-Mobile has already surpassed Sprint in terms of total subscribers by mid-2015. The wholesale/MVNO/reseller market will gain a slightly higher percent of net adds over the next couple years.

Quotes:

Susan Welsh de Grimaldo, Director, Wireless Operator Strategies said: “As the US market focuses on the next stage of its evolution–from voice to text to data and now to constant connectivity and what you do with it—competition for market share and retention of subscribers takes center stage. Neck and neck numbers 3 and 4—challenger T-Mobile USA with its pro-consumer Un-carrier strategy and straggler Sprint that has shown great strides in network performance—are focused on network efforts to reach LTE network parity with the top 2 and market offers aimed to grow share, yet need to also address higher churn levels and margins.”

Phil Kendall, Executive Director, Wireless Operator Strategies, commented: “The top 2 carriers—Verizon Wireless and AT&T—share strategies as “defenders” of market leadership to find growth by diversifying revenue base, building platforms, engaging the broader ecosystem, and developing multiscreen video offerings. Yet there is perhaps more divergence in their strategies now than in recent years. Other players add to the dynamic market place, with Google now entered on to the scene as an MVNO and Dish having amassed more spectrum but not revealed strategy. MVNOs have been on an upswing, with Wi-Fi first and target segment approaches.”
