They are experts in leveraging data to better understand and influence customer behavior, and support clients in driving optimum value from their marketing and data platform investments.

“JBA will further bolster Kalido’s ability to source comprehensive customer data and execute marketing programmes and improve customer experiences based on those insights.”

JBA CEO James Bennett said, “This is an exciting time for JBA to be joining Australia’s most diversified marketing communications group.

“The acquisition provides IVE with a market leading customer analytics and marketing automation business to help deepen existing customer relationships. Joining IVE will give JBA an expanded client base and access to capital for continued growth, as well as add further value to our clients and provide new opportunities for all of our staff.”

Warwick Hay, managing director of IVE Group said, “The acquisition of JBA is a key part of IVE’s ongoing diversification strategy which has been effectively executed over the last decade.

“This acquisition will further enable IVE to deliver robust data and digital solutions, expand our execution capability and increase our strategic value with clients. We look forward to welcoming JBA to the IVE family.”
