STEAK, the award-winning international digital marketing agency, is pleased to announce the expansion of its US operations with a new location in Santa Monica, CA. The agency already operates in Europe, The Americas and Australasia. STEAK LA will be headed by Norman Brauns, a long-time employee of STEAK and a well-respected industry veteran. Brauns will continue to report into Mark Schwartz, STEAK’s US Managing Director.

Schwartz says, “As STEAK’s footprint grows worldwide, it has become apparent that the West Coast represents the largest opportunity for continued business expansion. Having a client-facing organisation in the Los Angeles area will allow us to offer our customers more flexibility and provides us with a direct sales channel in an incredibly strategic growth market.”

Founded in 2005, STEAK has a reputation for delivering measurable results for clients such as Virgin Holidays, Allianz and Debenhams. The agency is a market leader in direct response advertising, including paid and natural search marketing, social media, display advertising, mobile solutions, affiliate management and digital design. In May 2011, Dentsu, the world’s largest consolidated agency network, and the world’s 5th largest marketing communications company acquired 100% of the share capital of STEAK Group.
