BBC Advertising opens first office in Switzerland

MUMBAI: BBC Advertising has opened its first office in Switzerland, as it looks to capitalise on the recent growth in the market and build on its existing successful business relationships there.

As growth in the Swiss market has been fuelled predominantly by the luxury category, BBC Advertising, part of the UK pubcaster‘s commercial arm BBC Worldwide, is positioned to meet that demand, with the BBC commercial platforms‘ editorial output and production values attracting the premium demographic that luxury brands are seeking.

The increasing move towards online and its accompanying video formats also presents a great opportunity for advertisers to benefit from appearing on BBC Advertising‘s wide range of platforms, which includes,, digital apps as well as its network of commercial television channels, including BBC World News.

According to recent research by Toluna, TV and online are the most effective platforms for inspiring consumption of luxury goods among both men and women.

BBC Advertising has also today announced the appointment of Sarah Green to lead the new operation in Switzerland, based in Lausanne.

Reporting into BBC Advertising‘s Regional Director for France, Benelux & Switzerland, Laeticia de Belloy Green will be responsible for managing the existing international client base in Switzerland and for developing new business opportunities across the BBC Worldwide commercial portfolio.

Green commented, "Setting up this new office presents us with an exciting opportunity to connect international media buyers in Switzerland with all the fantastic content and innovative ways of delivery that only BBC Advertising can offer. I‘m excited about finding new opportunities and building fruitful new relationships."

de Belloy said: "BBC Advertising is delighted to have Sarah heading up our new office in Lausanne. She brings with her great expertise, insight and enthusiasm and I look forward to seeing our business grow and develop in Switzerland."
