Richard Grunsten, CEO, GSP Marketing, announced today the launch of a joint venture between GSP and Technomic Asia, to be called GSP/Asia, a full-service marketing and consulting agency with offices in Shanghai.
"This venture--not our first in the international arena--recognizes the huge demand on the part of Chinese and American companies to work together, to create new business opportunities to one of the most dynamic regions of the world," says Grunsten.
"With Technomic Asia's nearly three decades strategy work in China and our proven record of delivering accountable marketing programs based on high ROI, we believe that our services will be invaluable both to American companies seeking to establish a presence in China and to Chinese companies looking to adopt and adapt American marketing and advertising methods," he adds.
