They have a solid core team of talent as well as a reputable management team. Novus follows a set up similar to our model which features end-to-end content services, presenting a natural alignment with our ambition to scale content marketing in the region and lead in this space,” said Andrew Hirsch, Global chief executive officer, John Brown.

Both will report to Rob Hughes, chief executive offier, Dentsu Aegis Network North Asia directly. The duo will also be joined by Lucy Dryburgh, John Brown media’s existing managing director. “We have seen a dramatic increase in demand for high quality content services across the region over the past couple of years. Novus needed to find a partner with a strong global network who could offer us the infrastructure, expertise and resources to allow us to expand our footprint within the region. John Brown Media is one of the world’s largest content agencies and joining forces represents a significant opportunity to develop the business further, not only to better service our existing clients but to gain exposure to new brands and provide our teams with a strong framework for world-class collaboration, skills development and career options,” said Cholmeley.
