Rise lands place on 118 118 agency roster

The Number has appointed Rise Communications to the roster of agencies working on its 118 118 brand.

Rise will work across the 118 118 business, focusing especially on its directory assistance text messages for consumers, and on its mobile marketing service Txt//Ad. This service was launched recently as a partnership with the search company Miva.

William Ostrom, the commercial director at The Number, said: "The appointment of Rise will make 118 118 even more relevant and useful to millions of people."

Rise also handles communications planning for brands including The Macallan whisky, BT, AOL and Reckitt Benckiser.
