It’s with great excitement that we announce today that MIG Global is combining its family of specialist agencies – Morar HPI, VIGA, Charterhouse and Circle – into one: Savanta.
Guided by our strapline ‘Make Better Decisions’, we’re pulling together the best parts of each agency, to facilitate faster, easier and more effective decision making for our clients. In doing so, Savanta combines the benefits of a smaller ‘boutique’ agency mindset – deep specialist expertise and a tailored, client-first approach – with the resources of a larger organisation.
This exciting opportunity allows us to bring 200 staff, including an innovation team of 20, and 5 offices across the UK and North America together to give clients the benefit of scale.
In the Savanta world, our senior line up remains as strong as ever, bringing together talent from across the business. I’m very fortunate to be supported by a strong senior team comprised of: Lewis Reeves, ex-VIGA and Global CCO; Paul Bath, Global COO; Alistair Cunningham, Global CIO; Nick Baker, former head of MorarHPI and UK CEO; and Vin de Robertis, Americas CEO.
The world has seen a fundamental shift in the last decade – we’re inundated with information and face overwhelming complexity. The most successful businesses decode this nuanced environment and make fast, nimble, impactful decisions. Insight is central to this, but the old agency model is too slow and too blunt. The goal of Savanta is to shake that up.
For us all, the world of Savanta is brand new and brimming with potential – I very much look forward to bringing you further updates as we continue on this journey!
Roger Perowne, CEO.
