Omobono expands into US with launch in Chicago’s business district

Business, Creativity, Digital & Media

Digital agency Omobono opened its first US office in the heart of Chicago’s thriving business district. Omobono brings together a mix of business expertise, creativity and technical skill to help clients such as Ingredion, JLL and Shell define their brand propositions, increase competitive advantage, and enhance relationships with employees and customers.

The agency, headquartered in Cambridge (UK), attributes its rapid growth to marketers’ increased recognition of the strategic importance of digital marketing in their businesses.

Omobono’s Chicago-based clients include JLL, a global professional services and investment management firm offering specialized real estate services.

 We’re delighted to be working with Omobono to push the envelope on our marketing and communications strategy. We’ve been impressed by their lengthy track record in the B2B marketing space and now with their presence in Chicago, we’ve developed an even stronger relationship

Jill Kouri,

 Since opening our first US office in Chicago, we have hit the ground running, working with new clients on projects at the cutting edge of digital communications in B2B. We are excited to be here and looking forward to all that 2015 has in store
