Some exciting news just in - Hylink has been selected as the exclusive digital agency partner of Local Planet, the largest privately owned independent media agency network in the world.  We’re proud to join this global network as the second largest member agency and thrilled for the opportunities this strategic partnership promises in opening pathways for further global expansion.

Since opening our international headquarters in LA last year, we’ve been steadily committed to becoming a true global agency, dedicating our time to harnessing the rapidly growing exchange of business both inbound and outbound to China.  Our alignment with Local Planet is the next natural step toward solidifying this goal.

Offering the same benefits of established networks, Local Planet operates with a uniquely different “local-up” approach and brings together the world’s leading privately owned media agencies in 58 markets.  In partnership with Local Planet, Hylink will serve as the member agency for global business pitches as well as direct business for the China and South Korea market for all media services.  Additionally, Hylink will source new business opportunities for China-based brands seeking to expand into global markets.

“Hylink is proud to join the most prominent global network of independent media agencies.  This partnership undoubtedly helps supply a pathway for our clients looking to expand to global markets.  Although still very young, Local Planet is already earning global respect from clients and industry stakeholders alike and we are thrilled to be working with Martyn Rattle, Global CEO of Local Planet, Horizon Media, and all of the Local Planet partners and shareholder agencies across the globe,” said Humphrey Ho, Managing Director of Hylink, US.

Martyn Rattle, Global CEO of Local Planet added, “I am very proud to welcome Hylink, China’s largest, independent digital agency, to Local Planet.  This exciting development for our network further strengthens Local Planet’s rapidly growing global footprint and will provide our international clients with access to sector-leading talent and innovation in one of the most dynamic, fastest growing and largest markets in the world with 1.3 billion consumers and 641 million active users of the internet.”

“Local Planet was built on the premise that nobody knows their market better than a local entrepreneur,” said Bill Koenigsberg, President, CEO and Founder of Horizon Media and Chairman of Local Planet.  “China is a market of enormous potential, one comprised of unique nuances and challenges, and one that is experiencing change at a rate unlike anywhere else on the planet.  I am pleased to welcome Su Tong and Hylink to Local Planet.  Hylink is an incredibly talented and prestigious partner for us in China.”

We look forward to working collaboratively with Local Planet and its agencies to further our shared goals and continue to provide high-value services to our existing and future clients.
