This is an agency of friends. People who know, like and trust each other.

The Partners have worked together for well over a decade, building the most cohesive and experienced team in the country. Every day we rally our talents around one single purpose; ensuring that our Clients' brands are preferred. We do this by creating resonant strategies, and powerful ideas. "Brutal Simplicity of Thought" is more than a philosophy, it lies at the centre of everything we do.

The world's most famous ad men, Maurice and Charles Saatchi, who started Saatchi & Saatchi in 1970, left to start M&C SAATCHI in 1995. Their entrepreneurial spirit has resulted in M&C SAATCHI PLCbecoming the fastest growing independent advertising agency group, with 26 offices globally. The M&C SAATCHI ABEL Group, founded in February 2010, shares the same vision and has grown to 170 people across Johannesburg and Cape Town.

M&C SAATCHI was founded off the belief that 'nothing is impossible', our story proves this belief to be true.

It’s at the heart of everything we do.
From strategy, to creative thinking, to our work.
From how we are structured to the systems we use.
It runs through the culture of every single one
of our offices, all around the world.
