The World: Cape Town - The Agency sets up shop in Cape Town

The South African advertising shop The Agency has expanded by opening an office in Cape Town. Ian Farrow, the founder of Young & Rubicam South Africa, will take the position of managing director of the new outpost.

The company has a base in Johannesburg, but believes a Cape Town office will allow it to attract new business in the area while strengthening relationships with existing clients.

The Agency handles clients including the tour operator Cape Town Routes, Dunns clothing shops, Curity Baby Products and Trend Sales & Marketing.
