They are a shining example of a new era of Great British business

London, July 2, 2013: British technology company Ve Interactive has announced the opening of offices in Amsterdam and Paris. Making the announcement at A4U EXPO Europe in Amsterdam today, this now takes the global footprint of the company to ten offices worldwide, since its inception in late 2009.

The two new offices are headed up by existing Ve Interactive employees. After serving on Ve’s international desks in its London HQ, from where they developed their domestic client bases, Marjolein Koppelaar and Michael Gonzalez have both now relocated. They will be Managing Director and Directeur Général, based out of Ve Interactive’s Amsterdam and Paris offices respectively, and where they have been busy recruiting their local teams.

Marjolein commented: ”I am delighted to have the opportunity to interact and communicate more effectively by being ‘on the ground’ in The Benelux.” Michael added “Being able to experience the French market first hand, means that I will be better able to support existing clients and prospect new ones, and I am looking forward to bringing micro insights from my territory back to the Ve Interactive operation.”

Speaking from A4U EXPO Europe in Amsterdam, Ve Interactive’s Co Founder & CEO, David J. Brown explained: “We are delighted to launch these two new offices at what is the industry event for Europe’s leading digital marketers. Our mission is always to deliver the best customised and most professional service that we can to our international clients, and giving them first hand access to local offices is the ultimate illustration of this. Proactively growing our international footprint has meant that we can fully support clients within their own time zones and understand the nuances of their digital cultures, languages, and local data regulations, rather than operating from a helicopter perspective out of the UK. We’ve always listened to our clients’ needs and are very grateful for their support as we officially declare our Amsterdam and Paris offices, open.”

The new Ve Interactive European offices add to an existing three based in the Nordics and Germany, as well as Ve Interactive offices in the USA, Australia, Brazil and China.

Commented Amit Paul, Director of Entrepreneur Country, the community of entrepreneurs, investors, corporate partners and media who believe that entrepreneurship and independent business growth are vital to the future of the UK and Europe: “At Entrepreneur Country, we look to champion high-growth British businesses which can compete in a global market place. Ve Interactive not only possess these qualities, but have the ability to successfully enter markets at will. They are a shining example of a new era of Great British business.”
