Speaking about the launch, Michael Nederlof, CEO of Dentsu Aegis Network, Middle East and North Africa, said: “Vizeum’s client- centric approach, through the use of data, insights, strategy and innovation has seen them build business solutions for their clients in over 40 global markets, of which now have access to the Middle East and North Africa. With its own proprietary tools such as DecisionZ, Ecosystems and Dentsu Aegis Network’s CCS study, the agency will be able to offer its clients insights that far exceed the tools currently available in the region.”

Our clients will also benefit from the increased buying power our newly formed global network can offer.”
