LONDON – July 2019Thunderhead, the global leader in Customer Engagement and Journey Orchestration technology is today announcing a strategic partnership with leading customer experience agency Proximity London.

Supported by its proprietary Connected Creativity process, Proximity London brings brands and people closer together through authentic human experiences.

Andrew Waddell, Chief Operating Officer at Proximity London said, “At Proximity we’re constantly looking at ways to ensure we remain at the forefront of technological innovation. Our clients are looking to deliver seamless and creative experiences across all touchpoints that are unique to each individual. The ONE platform will make this a reality, enabling brands to intelligently use insight at scale to inform in-the-moment decisions that deliver the best outcomes for the both customer and brand.”

Jason Hemingway, CMO at Thunderhead commented, “In this new era of engagement-led marketing, campaigns give way to journeys that orchestrate seamless experiences and conversations across all customer touchpoints – marketing, sales, ecommerce, or service. Proximity’s clients have embraced this mindset and the opportunity that ONE enables.

It’s exciting to be partnering with Proximity, their clients and the broader Omnicom group to help drive this engagement-led future.”
