WPP has announced its acquisition of Brazilian digital innovation and software engineering company, DTI Digital.
The acquisition follows the objectives outlined in WPP’s December 2020 Capital Markets Day, which highlighted expanding WPP’s presence in fast-growing areas of experience, commerce and technology.

“I am delighted to welcome DTI Digital to WPP and look forward to working together to deliver transformative results for our clients.”
