Agency Grass Roots has expanded its global set-up with the opening of two further overseas offices - Grass Roots Australia has launched in Melbourne, and Grass Roots China has opened its doors in Beijing.

The Melbourne office is headed up by Matt Seadon and Beijing by Paul Scarpignato. Both report to Steve Hibberd, who set up the Grass Roots Singapore office in Spring 2007. Grass Roots India, based in Delhi and also reporting to Hibberd, was set-up in March this year.
 
"I'm very excited about our presence in China and Australia", said Grass Roots chairman David Evans. "A huge amount of work has gone in to bringing this part of our plan to fruition and I've every confidence that we will make great progress in this part of the world, under the direction of Steve Hibberd. Beijing is clearly a high profile city at the moment, but more importantly being able to deliver in China offers considerable added value to many of our clients".
