360i is a highly regarded digital agency, headquartered in New York, but with several three additional offices across the US. The agency was acquired in 2010 by Japanese marketing giant Dentsu. A London outpost opened in 2013 in partnership with local agency Steak (also owned by Dentsu), as well as offices in Canada and Brazil. 360i is best-known as a specialist in search marketing and social media, but increasingly also offers other creative and consultancy services. Sarah Hofstetter became CEO in 2014, and then chairman in 2018. Jared Belsky is now CEO. Advertising Age estimated total revenues of $178m in 2016. That year, 360i took over management control of the US outpost of sister media agency Vizeum, although the latter retains its own branding. Researcher Forrester ranked 360i as one of three market leaders in US search marketing that year, and as the overall leader in 2012 by quality, although it ranked lower than other agencies in revenues from search. The agency was actually founded in Atlanta in 1998 by Bryan Kujawski and David Williams. It was acquired in 2005 to Innovation Interactive, a group of search marketing business run by Bryan Wiener and Will Margiloff, who sold it on again five years later to Dentsu. Wiener stayed on as CEO and then chairman, before leaving in 2018 to become CEO of digital researcher comScore.

Adbrands Weekly Update 22nd Sep 2016: Dentsu Aegis Network is to combine the US outpost of second-string media offering Vizeum with its significantly larger digital agency 360i. Vizeum USA currently employs around 150 staff, to 360i's 800-plus. Both agencies will retain separate branding, but Vizeum USA's current CEO Steven Feuling is to leave the business. Patrick Affleck was promoted to president of Vizeum USA, reporting to 360i's executive chairman Bryan Wiener. He said the combined 360i/Vizeum will service small to midsize brands seeking "one, proven integrated offering in a rebundled world where digital, and media and creative are all integrated together".
