TORONTO, LOS ANGELES & MUMBAI February 8, 2023: QYOU Media Inc. (TSXV: QYOU; OTCQB: QYOUF), the fast-growing media group has announced that it will be integrating its worldwide operations headquartered out of USA and India for global creator media solutions. As part of the integration strategy, Glenn Ginsburg, President QYOU, will oversee synergies across the award-winning US and Indian businesses, while Pranay Swarup & Julie Kriegshaber, CEO & COO of Chtrbox move to co-Vice Chairman roles to strategically advise collaboration efforts.
Across the US & India, QYOU & Chtrbox have been leading influencer marketing mandates for global companies such as Paramount Pictures, Hasbro, Activision, P&G, HP, Amazon, Spotify, Pinterest and many others who can further benefit from enhanced expertise, cost efficiencies and cross border reach that comes with this integration.
Curt Marvis commented, "QYOU’s vision behind our 2021 acquisition of Chtrbox was to become a global creator media powerhouse. Since then, both the India and US influencer marketing teams have independently doubled their business, and we feel confident that with a joint offering across teams will further fuel this growth trajectory.”
Glenn Ginsburg added, “Beyond expanding our client list in the QYOU USA team, we are seeing increased demand for pan-regional and global campaigns. With Chtrbox, we can further support our clients with scalable and cost-effective efforts that are relevant and authentic. We are thrilled to tap into the Chtrbox team of over 80 influencer marketing specialists and their extensive creator networks in India, Asia, and around the world.”
Pranay Swarup adds, “While Chtrbox has taken up a fair amount of international work already, we are excited for QYOU & Chtrbox to unlock a new layer of global growth together. Under the QYOU Media group, Chtrbox is in great hands and I look forward to staying strategically involved”
Chtrbox’s India teams under the leadership of Karan Pherwani & Mrunali Dedhia, co-Vice Presidents, and Darshil Shah, Director ChtrSocial, will work directly with Glenn Ginsburg, President QYOU USA to further drive this integration and growth.
