About McCann Manchester

Hello! We’re McCann Manchester. When it comes to marketing communications agencies, we're a bit different.

For starters, you’ll find us on a unique country house campus in rural Cheshire. This is home to 370 hugely talented people with skills in just about every marketing specialism you’ll ever need - and it also comes with its very own on-site pub and a gaggle of ghosts. But don’t be deceived by the rural idyll. We work with many of Britain’s best-known and best-loved brands. Our campus creates an environment that nurtures great thinking and great ideas.  

Our digital offering, McCann Connected, is a top 30 digital agency (econsultancy.com) and its 140 specialists span the paid, owned and earned landscapes, including content production. We help our clients make sense of the complex journeys consumers make and develop marketing solutions without bias or borders. We help connect consumers with brands, technology, and, of course, each other. Customers don’t live or shop in digital silos, so we don’t operate in them, and we recognise that today’s customer journeys are more complex than ever. Our response is to create digital solutions to your business challenges that exist without borders or boundaries.  It doesn’t matter if it’s advertising, PR, digital, media, search or social media, a great idea that helps our clients grow their business is always a great idea. As we say, where we work is very much part of how we work.

And how we work is by helping brands play a meaningful role in people’s lives. If you’re meaningful, you’re relevant and have a clear role. And if you’re relevant and have a clear role, you’re more likely to be valued, loved and most importantly used by and bought by consumers.  We create meaning by harnessing the power of truth. When H K McCann established the company more than 100 years ago, he came up with a compelling idea; find a truth and tell it well. It’s a philosophy that has stood the test of time.

More than a century later, we are still guided by the thinking of our founder. We call it Truth Well Told.
