They are a true extension of our team and we are so thrilled to have them onboard to supercharge our vision,” said Natalie Wills, Zalando’s Global Director of Social Media, PR & Influencers.

Social Chain shares their ambitions and we can’t wait to help them execute an industry-leading strategy,” added Oliver Yonchev, Social Chain’s US Managing Director.

“We needed an agency that truly understands our values, our desire to make an impact in Gen Z culture, and a team that are truly social natives.”
