Omnicom today announced it has closed the previously announced acquisition of Flywheel Digital, the digital commerce business of Ascential. Terms of the acquisition were first announced on October 30, 2023.

“We are thrilled to cross the finish line and officially welcome everyone at Flywheel to Omnicom,” said John Wren, Chairman and CEO, Omnicom. “Flywheel’s best-in-class solutions are a game changer for our clients whose demand for digital commerce and retail media solutions continues to grow. When combined with our well-established offerings in commerce, media and precision marketing, we now have end-to-end services that outpace the competition.”

The addition of Flywheel uniquely positions Omnicom to seamlessly integrate offerings across retail and brand media, digital and in-store commerce, as well as precision marketing. Omnicom will connect the audience and behavioral data in its open operating system Omni to the product and transaction data in Flywheel Commerce Cloud to provide its clients unmatched insights and analytics.
