Whenever we face new tasks, the best minds from all disciplines come together in line with the synchronic diving principle to quickly determine the best ideas and solutions in a closely networked manner. This can be Y&R’s own experts or Y&R Brands’ experts. Y&R Brands is an alliance of communication experts from specific specialist disciplines, each of whom is leading in his/her sector. Alone we are strong, together we are even stronger.
We are ‘modern classics’ – passionate but also highly experienced specialists in modern brand management and communication. In accordance with the synchronic diving principle, our experts always work in close cooperation with the Y&R Brands companies. Particularly close ties exist with the conversation experts at Wunderman, with whom we share a home at our Frankfurt head office. As joint Chairman, Wolfgang Haf manages the business operations of both companies.
