M&C Saatchi Snares Ogilvy’s Michael McEwan For Melbourne MD Role

M&C Saatchi has named Michael McEwan as managing director of its Melbourne office.

McEwan joins the agency from Ogilvy Melbourne where he was joint managing director for the business for the past five years. He was with the agency for nine years. Having commenced his career at Y&R, he then spent nine years with Clemenger BBDO in Melbourne and BBDO Asia Pacific.

With more than 23 years’ experience working with some of the world’s most famous brands both locally and internationally, McEwan’s experience spans multiple categories including finance, superannuation, packaged goods, retail, automotive, tourism, education, telecommunications, community service, State and Federal Government.

M&C Saatchi CEO Jaimes Leggett said that McEwan brings a unique combination of talent and leadership to the role.

“We’re thrilled Michael is joining the agency,” he said. “He’s razor-sharp – equally at home in a strategy session as he is judging creative. But perhaps most importantly, he’s an incredible people-centred leader, well respected by staff and clients alike. He is absolutely the right person for the agency.”

McEwan added: “I’ve been fortunate to work with many talented and wonderful people – it’s what motivates me and M&C Saatchi is a formidable brand with an enormous depth of talent across the group. With its strong focus on innovation, I’m really excited to be joining the team. This is a tremendous opportunity and the natural next step in my career.”
