“We are very much looking forward to working with the M&C Saatchi team over the coming year to determine a new and exciting direction for the St Vincent de Paul Society that will, in essence, provide better outcomes for the people we help in over 620 Australian communities.”
M&C Saatchi managing partner, Mim Haysom, said: “It is a privilege to have the opportunity to work with one of Australia’s largest and most iconic charities, and an organisation whose sole purpose is to help people in need.

The appointment continues a string of new business wins for M&C Saatchi in recent months that includes IAG insurance brands NRMA, SGIO and SGIC, luxury car marque Lexus and Cricket Australia.
