Tom George said, “We want MEC to continue to grow and be the most successful agency here. We were named Agency of the Decade last year and our ambition is to be named Agency of the next decade too. One of our great strengths has been the stability of the management team and it has always been our desire to maintain continuity and promote where possible from within.
Our business continues to get more and more complex and that’s both exciting and challenging. The scope of delivering excellence to our clients, diversifying our business and winning new business makes it more demanding every day and we need an agile management structure to reflect this new reality. Stuart and Jason have been instrumental in the continued success of MEC and have very complementary skills in the areas that we believe are going to be critical in taking MEC to the next level.
Sarah has done a great job as one of the senior management team alongside Steve, Stuart and Jason and her promotion is in recognition of this. In Paul we have a consummate client leader and his promotion recognises the importance of delivering a first class service to all of our clients.
In Jason, Stuart, Sarah and Paul we are extremely fortunate to have people with such strong skills and reputation within our company. I am confident that with their knowledge and experience, along with the support of our UK Management Board and the regional MEC team they will replicate the UK winning formula to more clients across the business. “
