Infront Buys Majority Stake in Omnigon

Infront Sports & Media, an international sports marketing company based in Switzerland, said it has acquired a 51% stake in digital consulting firm Omnigon.

Financial terms were not announced, but the deal comes on the heels of a partnership between the companies announced in October 2015 that involved the custom development of digital solutions fed from centralized content management platforms.

The Omnigon brand and management team, including CEO Igor Ulis, will remain, the companies said. New York-based Omnigon has more than 250 employees in North America and Europe.

Omnigon has inked digital service deals with the PGA Tour, NASCAR and the Miami Heat, was a key developer for a mobile app tied to the 2015 Rugby World Cup, and recently launched a new website for Italian pro soccer club AS Roma.
