“2014 caps a remarkable journey for us,” said Moutran. “We started life 30 years ago this year, with one client and four staff. Today, we have shown once again that we are the region’s most creative communications agency. I could not be more proud of everyone at Memac Ogilvy. I believe that there are many awards we can obtain. Each one of us needs to apply the creativity to every single discipline within the work. This is our way for better future,” Eddie added.
Moutran emphasized on pervasive creativity as a main pillar for next year and the years to come. He explained how creativity was a turning point in the company’s life towards one of the most awarded agencies in the Arab world. “Creativity is not a restricted area for the creative team; it should be applied to every single discipline within the agency. We have a longing to creativity, and our passion in applying it on every single project we handle is what distinguishes us,” said Moutran. “By being intuitive, proactive and creative we can tell our clients something they never heard and make sure we are invaluable to them,” he explained.
