We describe ourselves as the most contemporary global creative & media agency.  Were independent, born in social back in 2009; we come from New York & our founder Gary Vaynerchuk  (known by his fans as GaryVee) & we have grown locally & authentically across the world.  We are digital first, were creative & media - were all the things that the advertising industry isnt.  We have gone to the roots of where consumer attention is, building business transformation, building culturally & contextually relevant creative & distributing it via the modern comms plan. We believe through & through that brand is built in social & that if brands listen to consumers, see their real time behaviour, know culture & platforms better than anyone, then we will build the most effective brands in the world.  We are social through & through but we think big - our work scales to big ideas (we made 3 Superbowl ads this year).

VaynerMedia - & VaynerX (our version of a modern holding co) is growing at a crazy rate. New York is the mothership, & we have offices in London, APAC (Singapore, Bangkok, Australia, Tokyo), LATAM (Mexico City) & LA. We have just been awarded AdWeeks Breakthrough Media Agency of the Year & were #5 in AdAges A List (up from Agency to Watch last year. Our first Campaign School Report for EMEA described us as the cool exchange student forming roots which we love a lot as it gets to the heart of what we are trying to do. 

VaynerMedia in EMEA is flying.  We are 130+ strong & doubled in headcount during the pandemic.  Our clients include TikTok (social AOR, run out of London), Durex, Tinder, Kraft Heinz, WeWork, Indeed, among others. Weve been running multiple local market campaigns - integrated media & creative, creative only, media only - across NL, France, Germany, Italy, Spain & there are more on the cards, which is why we are growing our presence in Amsterdam.

VaynerMedia Amsterdam is opening shortly, primarily to partner the many EU clients we have.  We love Amsterdam - its an incredibly creative, innovative & exciting market.  It has diverse talent representing many different countries & communities.  Its the perfect hub for our EU operations. And of course, its a great city.  We believe in launching in a market bottom up - with incredible local people who understand & are excited about the Vayner Way shaking things up, & building credibility & fame through our work.  Wed love to talk to you to see if this sounds like you
