MEC North America New York, United States Media Buying / Planning


Philosophy & Competitive Advantages

We have a stretching global ambition:
“To be our clients’ most valuable business partner, famous for inspiring people and exceptional results.”

If you like ordinary, we’re not for you.

If ‘beyond comfort’ thrills you, if ‘expanding possible’ attracts, then you’ll do your best work here.
You’ll do it because we’ll provoke you, challenge you and unashamedly ask for more.
We believe there are no limits for passion, imagination and wonder. And it’s only when we explore the unknown that we can truly thrive.
That's why we're so passionate about investing in our people to help them thrive collectively and individually.
We’ll reach out and help you explore the uncharted because that’s where ideas flourish. It’s where people and brands grow.
You owe it to yourself and we owe it to our clients. It’s the MEC way.
Don’t just live. Thrive. 

Network Description
