SAN DIEGO, Calif., June 17, 2019 – Valtech, a global digital agency focused on business transformation, today announced the acquisition of leading experiential and digital innovation agency MJD Interactive.
 
MJD has over a decade of experience working with brands to create complex digital products and immersive experiences.

By acquiring MJD, Valtech strengthens its lead in Connected Experiences and Connected Spaces, a service area that is seeing growth across industries seeking to seamlessly engage with their customers across digital and physical experiences.
 
“Today’s consumers expect uninterrupted and fully connected experiences when they interact with a brand. To be successful today you have to authentically connect with your customer’s emotions while removing friction from their lives,” says Jeremy Duimstra, CEO and Co-Founder at MJD Interactive. “Connected experiences open up the ability for brands to tell stories that resonate in a deeply moving way, while the technology platforms we build make their lives exponentially easier.” 

“We are seeing huge demand across a wide array of industries, from retailers, brands and automotive, to reinvent what will be the stores, the showrooms or even the connected cars of the future. Experiences need to be fully personalized and service driven with no frontiers between physical and digital,” says Olivier Padiou, Group Chief Operating Officer at Valtech, “businesses need to reimagine the customer experiences they provide. It can no longer simply be about pricing, transactions and inventory; online has already proven it can handle those things better.”
 
“We’re excited to leverage our capabilities and experience in the international footprint Valtech gives us across 5 continents and 16 countries.  We believe that together the depth of our global capabilities and experience will allow our mutual clients to reinvent and transform their customer experiences,” says Michael Maginnis, President and Co-Founder at MJD Interactive.
