The Phoenix Group, based in Cape Town, focuses predominantly on providing Branding and Design Business strategy and HR consulting to the financial services sector in West Africa. Phoenix Group director Paul Cape says, Through consulting for clients in Africa, we noticed increasing demand for an expanded range of top level marketing services and realized that we needed a strong partner to be able to service these opportunities. Weve found the perfect fit with award-winning agency Chillibush Communications and look forward to creating more of a foothold and reputation for good service within these territories.
Chillibush Africa to Inherit Massive Experience
Glen Jordan, a founding director of activation and media business Provantage and a former Managing Director of Chillibush Communications, will bring his extensive experience in emerging markets to bear as Managing Director of Chillibush Africa. Paul and Leanne Cape of the Phoenix Group, Chillibush founding director, Dale Hefer, and Chillibush creative director Felix Calitz will form an experienced leadership team for Chillibush Africa.
Chillibush Africa will provide 360° through-the-line communications, offering integrated solutions without sacrificing expertise in specific areas, says Jordan.
