Ahead Group is the largest agency network in the Nordics.

All agencies in Ahead Group are leaders in their discipline and offer services in the fields of content marketing, CRM, design, digital marketing, events, advertising and performance.
“The acquisition of Narva is important to the development of Ahead Group. It responds to customer demand for broad solutions and strategic counseling in the new media landscape. Narva is the first company with a focus on PR. We welcome Narva to our strong network and look forward to bringing our keen offering to both the Swedish and the Nordic market,” says Anders Rask, Head of Agency Network and Strategy at Aller media Sweden.
“The media industry is undergoing a great transformation. Aller media is making investments to strengthen its customer offering and portfolio. Narva’s high level of strategic expertise in communication serves as an excellent complement to the expertise in our existing subsidiaries Make Your Mark and OTW. We feel there’s very good potential for valuable synergies between the subsidiaries,” says Bodil Ericsson Torp, CEO of Aller media Sweden.
