McCann Worldgroup, the UK’s largest integrated marketing communications network, is launching in Leeds.

The agency, which is part of the Interpublic Group, already has major UK operations in London, Manchester, Birmingham, Bristol and Milton Keynes. Its Leeds team will be based in Wellington Street in the city centre, next to Stickyeyes, another Interpublic company.

Mark Lund, the UK CEO of McCann Worldgroup, said: “We are always focused on meeting the needs of clients and providing them with access to the capabilities and services they require. Opening an office in Leeds reflects this approach.

“We’ve seen fantastic growth outside London in recent years and Leeds provides huge growth potential  - being home to the fastest growing young population in the UK and the largest workforce outside of London with many national and local brands choosing to base their headquarters there.

“It is a city that’s bursting with energy and talent and we are excited to be there.”  

McCann Worldgroup is a leading global marketing solutions network with working across more than 100 countries. The global network comprises McCann (advertising), MRM//McCann (data science/technology/relationship marketing), Momentum Worldwide (total brand experience), McCann Health (professional/dtc communications), CRAFT (production), PMK-BNC (entertainment/popular culture), Weber Shandwick (public relations) and FutureBrand (consulting/design).
