The worldwide partners story

80 years of building brands
and building businesses

In 1938, a group of independent advertising agencies came together to learn from one another, to grow through one another, and to change the world.

More than 80 years later, Worldwide Partners represents a global network of more than 70 independent and diversified market services agencies in over 40 countries who support the world's most heralded brands across 90 industry verticals.

Unlike the traditional agency holding company model, Worldwide Partners does not own the agencies in our network. Our agencies own the network. Worldwide Partners agencies maintain their independence, remaining unencumbered by the restrictions of a parent company, while operating within an interdependent framework that cultivates a commitment to collaboration and accountability to deliver maximum business return for our clients.
