The new agency, 100 per cent owned by O&M, will be known as DSDS/ Ogilvy & Mather Amsterdam.

With a staff of 60, its combined income of 18 million Dutch Guilders place it just outside of the top five in the market. The agency will be housed in O&M's existing building.

DSDS/O&M's management team is headed by chairman Henk Druppers, who will report to O&M group chairman Wim van Melick.
