He will also join M&Co’s Global Management Team.
“We’re delighted to welcome Cameron to our integrated global team,” said Montieth M.

Adds Montieth: “Over 70% of our business is cross-border; the vast majority are communications programs in no fewer than three global media markets. The Covid-19 pandemic has created even more demand for our flexible, integrated, budget-efficient global model. We need to rely on remote work, effective communication, focused time management and adaptability more than ever. Cameron’s depth of experience leading agency teams and cultivating key stakeholder relationships will help our teams generate value for our clients and empower our clients navigate key challenges.”
