Chimney expands within the DACH region

Chimney, a full-service cross media company, has opened a new branch in Switzerland. It is now the company's third office within the DACH region, alongside Berlin and Frankfurt am Main. The new branch is under the leadership of Country Manager Nelly Riggenbach Hasler, who has a background within Employer Branding and Media.

Chimney has a heritage steeped in film and they have for the last 20 year created entertaining and impactful moving images for brands such as H&M and SAS, for advertising agencies like DDB and feature films like “Searching for Sugarman” and Spike Jonze’s “Her” as well as  TV series, music videos, and web-based films.

The Chimney Group’s CEO Michal Kalinowski believes that the offering and expertise is exactly what companies and organizations in Switzerland need. He says: “The traditional TV culture has rapidly changed during the last couple of years, hence brands can no longer rely on the power of TV commercials. Instead they need to build their own content within new media such as YouTube in order to catch the audience”. He is confident about the choice of former Universum Manager Nelly Riggenbach Hasler to lead and build Chimney Switzerland out of Basel and Zürich: “Nelly not only has a study background within Postindustrial design which suits very well with Chimney’s creative side but even more importantly she brings deep insights about the Swiss and German market.

“I see a great momentum for Chimney Switzerland and I am very exited to bring Chimney’s visual excellence to world known Swiss made brands and to open Switzerland’s first one-stop-shop for unique content for a wide range of channels such as online, social media and YouTube, as well as impactful digital broadcasting.” she says. 

Early 2015 Chimney Switzerland will be launching the YouTop100 Switzerland, a YouTube ranking measuring Swiss companies’ efficiency in the use of their YouTube channels. YouTop100 has previously been conducted in Australia, Denmark, Poland and Sweden. To read more about the ranking, please visit:  http://www.chimneygroup.com/youtop100/
