"Glam stands for significant reach with a high degree of engagement by women in Germany and around the world," said Ralf Hirt, CEO of Glam Media Germany and VP International. "With Fantastic Zero and Brash, we can now further expand our reach with male audiences. More than ever, this means marketing solutions that cater to the strong demand from agencies for premium advertising environments that appeal to men and have significant reach at the same time. The team at Fantastic Zero has created a highly successful business model, which we will roll out in other European countries in the future."
"After reaching number one for women, Glam Media is expanding to target men with the acquisition of Fantastic Zero," said Glam Board member Dr. Marcel Reichart. "Glam Media now has even broader reach for its innovative technology and digital marketing solutions."
