FINN Partners Acquires CatchOn
January 8, 2019
I am pleased to share that Finn Partners is bolstering its global team in the Travel & Lifestyle sector with the acquisition of a majority stake in CatchOn, a 30-person integrated agency with offices in Hong Kong, Shanghai and Beijing. In addition to clients in travel, CatchOn brings accounts in wellness, food and beverage, and architecture and design.
CatchOn will be known as CatchOn, a Finn Partners Company. Cathy Feliciano-Chon, founder & CEO of CatchOn, becomes a managing partner and joins the FINN Asia management team led by Allan Tan and Yin Ching Yeap, who are based in Singapore.
The acquisition underscores our commitment to continue FINN’s global growth. This move follows our 2018 acquisition of Missy Farren Associates, a New York-based agency focused on travel and consumer, with special expertise in sports, and of The Brighter Group, a travel and tourism specialty firm in London which we acquired in 2017
With the addition of CatchOn, we now have over 100 team members focused on the travel and lifestyle sector, and we have over 70 in our growing Asia Pacific offices.
We are very excited about our future and look forward to additional growth-related announcements in the coming year.
