All GK Tribe Global agencies are owner-operated and thus work with owners who give you personalized white glove service. This avoids the typical agency and its layers of inexperienced account youngsters. Also, GK Tribe Global operates without the pressure of shareholders and short-term earnings requirements. Management decisions are not influenced by the politics or requirements of a large holding network and as a result GK Tribe Global agencies avoid high overhead expenses and operate much more economically, efficiently and successfully.
German marketing guru Karl Jacobi founded the GK Tribe Global Group in 1989. His vision was that of a worldwide union of German-language communication agencies offering a full range of marcom services. Jacobi knew there had to be a better way to provide local solutions for global marketing initiatives than the monolithic agency structure that many marketers were forced to work within.
In 1996, the originally German-speaking network evolved into a group of international agencies. GK Tribe Global members changed the group’s business language to English in order to facilitate communication, growth and activities. As a result, the GK Tribe Global Group more than tripled in size, from 11 to 36 members.
The next evolution of the GK Tribe Global Group was the development of specific sub-networks. Today, in addition to full-service agencies, the GK Tribe Global Group includes agencies that specialize in 11 vertical industries, such as healthcare, media, branding and public relations.
As clients require more global presence from their marketing communication initiatives, the GK Tribe Global network has shown steady growth. Today, the GK Tribe Global Group encompasses over 175 offices worldwide.
