Marc Horne

Strategy Director at Publicis Machine
Cape Town, South Africa


It’s Marc’s interest in dissecting human behaviour and getting to the core of what makes people tick that has helped him forge his career path over the past 10+ years. His journey in the advertising industry started in Johannesburg. After a 2-year stint working at LoweBull he made the big leap to Lowe London. Here he continued to work on a diverse range of global brands from Johnson & Johnson and MTV to Domestos and Stella Artois. And he picked up a few awards along the way. Marc returned to South Africa at the beginning of 2011, and joined MACHINE (now Publicis Machine) as Strategy Director where he is now also part of the Group Management Team.
