MWW announced the addition of two new clients to the firm’s Retail and e-Commerce group led out of the agency’s New York and San Francisco offices. Qubit, based in London, helps e-commerce companies leverage data to convert more shoppers to buyers; and Synqera, based in Saint-Petersburg, Russia, helps retailers create personalized, multi-channel communications that increase customer loyalty through leveraging big data-driven technologies.

“We’re seeing a lot of momentum in the e-commerce space as the global industry continues its rapid growth,” said Ephraim Cohen, MWW’s executive vice president, technology and digital content. “This is happening on both sides of the Atlantic as companies like Qubit and Synqera bring fresh and innovative consumer experience technologies to the marketplace. The role of our team will be to connect the innovations of the United Kingdom or Russia with the industry influencers of Silicon Valley and New York.”
