New Nairobi office extends Isobar's global footprint

The new Nairobi office will extend Isobar's global footprint to over 70 locations in over 45 markets. The move comes in response to an increased demand for digital expertise and services in the region and builds on Global CEO Jean Lin's strategy in continuing to build Isobar in key emerging markets as well as established markets. Lin also recently extended the network's offering to include Brand Commerce.
