New York, NY (PRWEB) February 25, 2011
VerticPortals a leading digital advertising agency has announced today the completion of the merger with Lapis Digital, which has offices in New York City. Key employees from Lapis Digital will join the VerticPortals team in their New York shop.
Lapis Digital was founded in 2002 by Asil Toksal to specialize in Flash applications, projects for mobile devices, kiosks, and Web sites that are technically complex and creatively challenging. The agency's clients include MTV Networks, T-Mobile and Casio. The combination of Lapis Digital's world-class creative talent, high-end content creation and design innovation with VerticPortals' global roster of blue-chip clients will bring new levels of digital expertise to both agencies and their subsequent clients.
Speaking on behalf of VerticPortals, Sebastian Jespersen, CEO, said, "In terms of quality of design and development, Lapis Digital is up there amongst some of the best boutique shops around. The merger is consistent with our strategy to enhance our delivery of capabilities by deepening our aptitude and talent in the digital marketing space. This strengthens our ability to provide integrated strategic and creative services across digital touchpoints to our clients."
VerticPortals is a privately held company with offices in New York, Copenhagen and Singapore. This is not the first merger for the rapidly expanding agency, having counted the purchase of Tihii Media - an agency specialized within youth communication - also within recent years.
Asil Toksal, CEO of Lapis Digital, will become EVP Accounts in VerticPortals. He added, "Merging with VerticPortals comes perfectly in a time of strategic partnerships to scale business and build efficiencies. The vast amount of Fortune 500 client expertise and long-term experience of VerticPortals in a global digital world will make a difference for Lapis Digital clients. As both agencies originate from Europe we have a similar mindset that is focused on value creation for the client and delivering high-quality services."
