JGroup, a Lebanon-based regional holding company with a vast portfolio of subsidiaries and investments across the Middle East, Europe, Asia, and the United States, has struck a strategic partnership with Xentrix Global, an international media planning and buying agency in the Middle East.

JGroup has acquired a majority stake in Xentrix Global to establish a more dynamic business that will penetrate new markets more effectively at a much faster pace in the new post-pandemic world.

This partnership will drive marketers not only from the region but across the globe especially from the US, Europe, Australia, and a few giant Asian countries such as China, Japan, India & Pakistan to select the most creative media platforms offered by fast-growing organizations like JGroup-Xentrix Global. It will allow marketers to access a bigger audience around the world, bolstering the region’s position as the global advertising powerhouse.

The collaboration will enable marketers to utilize the innovative arms of both companies and strategically reach out to a broader audience ingeniously, creatively and reach markets they had never considered before.
