Strategic communications agency MC2 has appointed Jonny Saatchi as its new Managing Director.

Saatchi, who joined the agency as a graduate in 2012, will be responsible for leading the employee-owned business through its next phase of growth.

He will focus on attracting and developing talent, winning new business and working with existing clients at the agency, which employs 40 currently.

MC2, which was founded in 1999, has won a series of high-profile accounts in the past year - including Total Processing, BankiFi, Tactus Group, Northstone and the British Business Bank.

Jonny Saatchi said: “I am incredibly proud to take on this role. MC2 gave me the chance to really develop and I am committed to ensuring everyone in this business gets the same opportunities I did, while bringing in talent that matches the brilliance we have here already.”

Mike Perls MBE, chair and founder, added: “We have always understood the importance of creating the conditions that allow brilliant people to develop at pace. Jonny’s development into a leader and a strategic thinker that can drive our business forward is a testament to that.

“There’s an extraordinary group of talent at MC2, and I’ve no doubt Jonny will inspire our people to deliver even greater things for the ambitious organisations we are privileged to work with.”
