A new independent Namibian advertising and communications agency, Weathermen & Co Advertising (Pty) Ltd., has launched in Windhoek, Namibia. The startup agency is a joint venture between Namibian holding company Ohlthaver & List Group and The Jupiter Drawing Room (Cape Town).

The two parties have a long term existing relationship. The O&L Group of Companies is the owner of Namibia Breweries Limited - a client of Jupiter (Cape Town) for many years - that owns, manufactures and distributes the award-winning beer brand Windhoek.

Mike Reilly from the Ohlthaver & List Group said: "As more companies enter the African market, we believe creating world class brands and communications strategies are a key component to developing a competitive advantage. This unique joint venture will bring together the best of creativity, global advertising best practice, and proven brand management in a very real way. We are excited to be in a position to share this breakthrough with like-minded brands."

Weathermen & Co. will be headed up by newly appointed MD, Nicky Schermer, who previously held the position of group account director at The Jupiter Drawing Room (Cape Town) for the past five years, and who headed up the Namibia Breweries account.

"It really feels like we're pioneering a new model of an active partnership between an African creative leader and local business leader," commented Nicky Schermer. "We really look forward to bringing Jupiter's creative credentials to this market with the support and credibility of O&L as our partner."

Along with servicing existing Ohlthaver & List Group brands - including Tafel Lager and Wernhil Park - Weathermen & Co. has already lined up other Namibian clients, including Team Namibia.
