LG Electronics Selects iCrossing as Global Digital Agency of Record

New iCrossing Office Opens in Seoul

NEW YORK, NY--(Marketwire - Jun 1, 2011) - iCrossing (http://news.icrossing.com) announced that it has been chosen as digital agency of record for the LG Electronics Global Marketing Office. The announcement today follows an extensive competitive bid.

Partnering with GIIR, LG's in-house agency and the third largest agency in Korea, iCrossing will be responsible for LG's worldwide digital strategy. The agency's duties will include a full range of integrated digital marketing services including media planning, buying and creative, as well as the development of search, social and mobile programs.

The LG account will be serviced by a dedicated team operating out of a newly opened iCrossing office in Seoul, a joint effort with GIIR, and existing iCrossing offices throughout the agency's global network.

iCrossing was acquired by Hearst Corporation last year, a move that gives the agency access to Hearst's extensive content creation capabilities and global advertising reach. "LG's continued innovation in the consumer electronics market provides us with a tremendous opportunity," said Don Scales, president and CEO, iCrossing. "We will help LG realize its digital marketing goals by driving awareness and engagement across paid, earned and owned media as a truly connected brand." LG is the latest in a number of clients -- including AAA and Equinox -- that have signed on iCrossing as digital agency of record.
