In 2009, the seeds for what would later become the Ole! Media Group were sown over a couple of cups of coffee in a Johannesburg café. As MD of a mobile messaging company at the time, Tim Legg was well aware of the power of mobile as a mass communication medium. Seeing the huge potential of this as a marketing tool, he and partner, Desere’ Orrill, set up MobiMedia, a strategic marketing agency that utilises the mobile channel to engage with consumers. Within a year, the company’s client base had grown to include major retailers and brands, cellular networks, media houses as well as various digital-only publishers.
The Ole! Media Group is a dynamic digital media company that specialises in holistic publishing, marketing and advertising solutions for the information age. It has a global publishing network and international client base, which it services from offices in Cape Town, Johannesburg and London.
