We are thrilled to announce that Carrie Hindmarsh has accepted a role as joint CEO of M&C Saatchi.
An M&C Saatchi Lifer, Hindmarsh began her career as a grad trainee at Saatchi and Saatchi in 1991 and joined M&C Saatchi when it was founded in 1995 and was promoted to managing director in 2007.
Carrie's client responsibilities include Transport for London, ODA, Direct Line, Heinz and Vertu. She is part of the PDG forum for the IPA and is on their ‘Interactive Mission’ to Silicon Valley. Hindmarsh is a fierce protector of people and talent within M&C Saatchi. Creatively driven, she is associated with much of the agency’s strongest work and will be pushing the creative agenda of the future.
Working together, the combination of Hindmarsh and Lisa Thomas will drive the advertising agency forward, drawing on skills in areas such as digital, social media and data. M&C Saatchi Group agencies include Human Digital, M&C Saatchi MILK, LIDA and M&C Saatchi Sport & Entertainment.
Tim Duffy, chairman of the M&C Saatchi Group, commented: “Carrie has been at the agency from its very first day and is a fierce exponent of the Saatchi spirit. She’s creatively-driven as well as talent-driven, and has been a massive force in its growth. I’m delighted to see her in the role of joint CEO and I have no doubt the combination of Lisa’s Group vision and acumen and Carrie’s creative and business nous will be a very powerful one.”
Carrie Hindmarsh, joint CEO of M&C Saatchi, added: “Our unrivaled Group offering combined with the exceptional talent in the building and a fresh approach to new business, means that we will continue to be a force to be reckoned with.”
