Founded in 2003, f\adigital has a heritage in Direct Marketing and CRM. As the market continued to grow and consumer behaviour towards marketing changed, f\adigital invested and evolved their offering in areas of Digital, Experiential and Data, and as a result, elevated their overall experiences offering for customers through creative content and engaging activities.

Khanh Nguyen (pictured above left), general manager TBWA\Group Vietnam, will add the additional responsibilities of general manager, f\adigital as well as the agency’s content production division Bolt Content, which launched in 2019.
Khanh Nguyen is a high-profile consultant and business leader with 12 years of experience working across various industries. Prior to joining TBWA, he held several senior management positions at another global agency network.
While its daily operation remains unchanged, f\adigital will now have access to a larger pool of resources, including talent and the global collective’s resource.
“This unity presents enormous opportunities for both partners; with access to TBWA\Group’s resources, f\adigital will elevate its services further, add value to TBWA\Group Vietnam with its data-driven solutions to complement the group’s current portfolios.” Said Khanh Nguyen, general manager of f\adigital.
