ARTEFACT, a data consultancy firm in France founded by McKinsey and Google alumni, has merged with NETBOOSTER GROUP, a media performance agency who has been pioneering the digital media buying space for 18 years.

The new Group will become the first agency designed for the AI era, the digital one-stop-shop CMOs need in order to master the digital & data ecosystem.

We offer a broad range of services, from strategy consulting (vision, tools, governance) to operating campaigns across channels (search, display, social, CRM) through data science (segmentation, scoring, predictive algorithms, …) or creativity (big ideas, brand platforms, …).

Our one-stop-shop approach translates into 4 departments, being developed across 22 offices in 15 countries:

  • Consulting
  • Data
  • Creativity

We believe the Group that we are building will disrupt the marketing industry through our tech mindset (automatisation, AI), commando teams (consultants, data scientists, media buyers and creatives working together), fact-based approach (transparency, business impact) and culture of excellence among our employees (PhDs/MBAs, top tier schools, ex-McKinsey/BCG/Bain, …)

The Group counts around 700 employees and 250 in France for a gross margin of around 60 M€ (30% in France) and international presence in 15 countries – in Europe (FR, UK, DE, NL, ES, IT, Nordics) as well as MEA (Dubai, South Africa) and Asia (HK, Shanghai, KL, …)
