Previous media agencies for the Klarna account varied by market, but Bountiful Cow won the retained account in the UK in June last year, with £5m in billings.

“With this future-facing digital brand undergoing such fast expansion, I have no doubt our expertise and experience across the network will help them see the bigger picture to drive transformation and further growth,” MediaCom global account director James Marples said.

Klarna global lead business-to-consumer regional marketing Magnus Lindholm added: “In the exponential growth Klarna as a business is in, we were looking for a partner with the structure, people, tools, and capabilities to support our continued acceleration across new and existing markets.”

“We are happy that MediaCom has stepped up to this challenge and look forward to a strong partnership.”

ID Comms supported Klarna on the review.
