We are excited to announce that Sahlia has officially stepped into the role of CEO of Agora! She has been pivotal in our parent agency Klyp’s strategy and growth throughout key international markets and now leads Agora, with a big first year under the new brand.
Agora has recently been appointed as the official marketing agency partner for a number of international clients, including ViraCorp and its subsidiaries out of the UK, which develop COVID-19 killing PPE and related products; BirdBox.Film, a UK based streaming service that is launching globally; Maximyzd, a global benchmarking tool for the financial services sector, based out of Singapore; and My Rewards, supporting their expansion into B2C and international markets. Additional opportunities in New Zealand and the US will also be announced in the coming months.
Klyp began the process of creating specialty brands in 2020 and as part of this approach, Agora was launched in 2021, with a focus on marketing services across strategy, research, and execution.
“The response to our approach has been incredible and really affirms the strategy that we have chosen to move forward with. Our clients love the way we bring strategy and research to the table, and the way they are able to work and communicate with the people working on their account. Our people are really the linchpin to the great success we have seen so far, and I am so excited to lead such an incredible team as we grow even further over the coming years”, said Sahlia.
Chris, who Co-Founded Klyp in 2003, will now act as Group CEO in an advisory role while launching additional products and brands over the course of 2022.
“Throughout 2020 and 2021, we looked internally, refocused and formulated a plan to invest in our core competencies of Creative, Technology, Experience, and Marketing. This has led to appointing strategic and dedicated individuals into our Leadership team. I am so proud of what Sahlia has achieved in a little over 18 months – Agora’s growth trajectory is surpassing our expectations”, Chris said.
