The Hamburg-based agency K16, which specialises in brand development and communication design, will open an office in Berlin at the beginning of the second quarter of 2017. This will bring the agency’s total number of offices in Germany to three. With its new office, K16 aims to open up new strategic opportunities and develop closer relationships with new and existing clients.
New office opens up strategic opportunities
Developing closer relationships with existing clients and acquiring new clients
K16’s new location will enable it to provide existing clients with an enhanced, more personal service. It will also allow the agency to build up contacts with potential new clients.
Several long-term K16 clients are based in Berlin, including ICT and e-commerce companies as well as associations, public authorities and agencies. Having an office in Berlin will also enable K16 to provide more direct and efficient support for the many events it helps clients organise in the German capital.
Eibo Schulz-Wolfgramm, Managing Director of K16, is delighted that the agency is taking this step forward: “We’ve been growing steadily for more than 25 years now, and our clients are scattered throughout Germany; indeed, some are scattered throughout the globe. However, despite digitalisation, emails and web conferences, being located near clients continues to be advantageous, as it enables us to be in direct contact with them. This is particularly important during critical phases of projects.
“Committed, empathetic, highly experienced.”
The new Berlin office will be managed by Mitsuo Kanemaki, who until now has worked as a K16 Account Manager in Hamburg. In his position in Berlin as Head of Site and Head of Account Management, Kanemaki will take care of existing clients, establish new client relationships and expand the agency’s network.
Kanemaki is excited about getting started in his new role: “I’m really looking forward to the new challenge and to exploring the strategic opportunities that the new office will open up for K16.” Schulz-Wolfgramm is confident too: “We are pleased to send Mitsuo Kanemaki, a very committed, empathetic and highly experienced colleague, to Berlin. Mr Kanemaki will be supported by a strong team of designers, presentation designers and project managers.”
The Hamburg office is growing too
Things are changing in the K16 headquarters in Hamburg, too. To facilitate the agency’s growth, its offices in the Speicherstadt district are expanding on to another floor. The expansion will provide room for the desks of K16’s many new employees. It will also offer space for creative work in meeting rooms and open spaces.
