Joe Public South Africa and Cosse Joe Public Nigeria will be working closely together, as equal partners, to strategically develop a network of partner agencies across Africa.

Funmi Onabulo, CEO of Cosse Joe Public, and Gareth Leck, CEO of Joe Public South Africa, commented, "It is so refreshing for a Nigerian agency and a South African agency to be collaborating as equal partners in establishing a continental network with true African roots. Our agencies share a common entrepreneurial approach as they are both independent and owner-managed, which creates a great platform for working together and enables decision-making that is nimble and swift. A style that our clients embrace. We are not encumbered by offshore holding companies and this works for us. Our collective vision is to create a network that inspires greatness across Africa."
