Rightmove appoints Wavemaker to manage its UK media account

Rightmove has appointed Wavemaker to manage its UK media account and promote its latest brand platform,

Wavemaker is the second largest media agency network globally, boasting clients including Vodafone, L'Oréal, IKEA, Huawei and Chanel.

Wavemaker replaces (the interestingly named) Electric Glue, which led the account for the past ten years.

Matt Bushby, Chief Marketing Officer at Rightmove, said:

“Really excited to have Wavemaker UK on board as we continue the Rightmove mission to give people the belief they can make their move. We can’t wait to get started with this brilliant team.

"Big thank you to The Aperto Partnership for your support in helping to build this exciting new relationship.

"Finally, thank you to Electric Glue for being such a great partner in the Rightmove growth story for over ten years."

Rightmove acquired 100% of verified resident reviews platform HomeViews last week for a cash consideration of 8 million GBP.


Grupo OLX appoints AlmapBBDO as marketing and advertising partner

Dutch-domiciled online marketplace OLX Group has appointed the Brazilian arm of BBDO as its marketing and advertising partner for its portals in Latin America.

AlmapBBDO will oversee campaigns for Brazilian real estate portals Zap and VivaReal, and this appears to be a move initiated, or at the very least supported, by the new VP of Marketing, Florence Scappini, who joined OLX in September 2023.

BBDO is an advertising agency headquartered in New York City. The firm was founded in 1891 and has over 8000 employees in over 70 countries worldwide.
