Global growth consultancy Penso has won a competitive pitch to build and manage the omni-channel marketing experience for Yas Mall in Abu Dhabi. In May 2016, Penso was appointed by asset management business Miral to handle social media, content data and digital for Yas Island.

Penso will manage digital strategy, content, CX, marketing automation, data, analytics, design and development of digital platforms, social, content creation, insights and reporting.
