A DIFFERENT KIND OF NETWORK
In 1995, Maurice & Charles Saatchi set out to create a different kind of Network. One that gave the local management equity and was allergic to bureaucracy. 20 years later M&C Saatchi, is the largest independent Network and still unique in structure, philosophy and culture.
In 2012 we opened our Abu Dhabi office and expanded the team with our Dubai office in 2016. From these offices we manage a number of local and global brands in Europe, GCC and of course the UAE.
OUR PHILOSOPHY: Brutal Simplicity of Thought
Brutal Simplicity of Thought is the creative philosophy of M&C Saatchi. It defines the way we work and the work we produce.
