We're an efficient, international network built to succeed, even in today's economy. Each partner is hand-selected for its progressive and innovative approach. In short, we have the critical mass and skills of the agency conglomerates coupled with the flexibility of the independents. We're very happy to have Agent X join us," adds Moffatt.
