Jim Hawker, co-founder of Threepipe, said: “We are delighted to bring Al and his talented team into Threepipe. We have worked with Earnie on joint campagins and admired their expertise from afar. As more of our campaigns become more visual through multiple channels, it’s key that we have the right combination of strategic approach and creative capability in house.”
Alistair Gammell, managing director of Earnie, said: “The chance to place our creative offer at the heart of Threepipe was too good an opportunity to pass up. Being part of Threepipe will help us meet the growing demand for measurable content campaigns on an international scale.”
