Company Overview :
Ours is the story of the eternal upstart and change is in our DNA. We were born with the ambition to change the world through media.
Raised in Asia, we are now the world’s most geographically balanced global network spanning US, Latin America, Europe and Asia.
Mindshare’s birth in 1997 shifted the focus from media as a pure commodity to media as a change agent.
Our ambition was to go beyond the traditional media descriptors of Optimise, Capitalise, Maximise. We will not be defined by the formulaic definitions of media.
Mindshare’s story is about teamwork. It’s why we called ourselves Mindshare in the first place!
We were designed to be a global network, balanced in every region, with clients benefitting from both global and local insights.
Today 75% of our business is global and our global network and integrated approach is our strength.
We are a global media agency network with billings in excess of US$31.4 billion (source : RECMA) and our network consists of more than 7,000 employees, in 116 offices across 86 countries.
Mindshare is part of GroupM, which oversees the media investment management sector for WPP, the world’s leading communications services group.
