Faktenkontor takes over creative agency Havana Orange

Jul 14, 2022

Hamburg-based agency group expands its portfolio with acquisition of Munich-based company.

The Faktenkontor Group continues to grow: With the acquisition of the multiple award-winning creative agency Havana Orange GmbH, based in Munich, the group is expanding its offering to include consumer brands, brand management, social media, influencer relations, online marketing, and creation, and is expanding the Faktenkontor location in Munich. The new managing director is Dr. Roland Heintze. He is supported by COO and co-partner Stefan Ehgartner.

The Hamburg-based PR consultancy is already distinguished by in-depth analyses, fact-based and cross-channel campaigns, as well as digital competence and expertise in the field of artificial intelligence. Now the agency group is rounding out its offering with consumer brands, brand management, social media, influencer relations, online marketing and creation. The topic of data-based communications is thus once again more broadly positioned. The marketing communications company Havana Orange supports numerous lifestyle, consumer, business and tech companies in the areas of global business development, sales and marketing services. Renowned clients such as Nokia Phones, Pico, Port of Rotterdam, Thinkproject and Invento already rely on the expertise of the Munich based agency.

With the takeover, Dr. Roland Heintze becomes the agency's new managing director; he is already managing director of Faktenkontor GmbH. Founder and former CEO Stefan Ehgartner remains a shareholder and moves into the role of COO. Faktenkontor will hold a majority stake in the company in the future. He will thus be responsible for managing existing customers as well as new customer business.

"Havana Orange is a real gain for the Faktenkontor Group, complementing our expertise in other relevant business areas. At the same time, our Munich colleagues share our claim to excellence," says Dr. Roland Heintze, Managing Director of Faktenkontor GmbH. "With the acquisition, we will be able to offer our clients an even broader range of consulting and implementation services in the future." In addition to the PR experts and crisis consultants of Faktenkontor GmbH, the Faktenkontor Group, with a consolidated revenue of 16.94M EUR in 2021 is a Top-10 agency in Germany and amongst FT’s 1,000 fastest growing companies, also includes IMWF with its strong analytical competence and expertise in the field of artificial intelligence, the digital agency deep digital, the Munich-based agency Akima Media GmbH, which specializes in the IT sector, as well as the IT consultancy TIQ Solutions and the Berlin-based PR agency Kompaktmedien, which specializes in political communication and social marketing.
