Having been acquired by Big Group, both will rebrand as Big Amsterdam with Michel van den Houten appointed as Managing Director.

The acquisition was supported through the assistance of the Netherlands Investment Agency in London and corporate services provided by De Hooge Waerder in Amsterdam.

Nick Scott, CEO of Big Group, stated:

“It has been a long-held ambition to scale our existing award-winning business outside the UK. Big Group has always worked internationally on behalf of our client brands and we see Amsterdam as the opportunity to create the hub that serves our clients across Europe. With Amsterdam’s well-deserved reputation for creative excellence and business culture, we felt it was the right location to extend our offering and we are very excited to have such a creative and forward-thinking team on board to work together in Europe and the UK.”

Michel van den Houten, Managing Director of Big Amsterdam, said:

The acquisition by Big Group provides us with the data-driven technological backbone that completes our proposition for our customers. We think, create and execute ROI driven brand activation and marketing campaigns and our ethos perfectly matches the Big Group culture in the UK.

Karen Mönnich, Co-Founder of 230V said:

“We have been hugely impressed by the passion, expertise and energy the Big Group team has shown and being part of Big Group means we can provide a fully integrated solution for our clients on an international scale. Besides our mutual can-do mentality, we look forward to creating the best solutions for our client brands and their customers.”
