I began my professional career as an Account Handler with a London-based marketing agency. During my seven years in the communications industry I had the pleasure of working for some of the world’s most celebrated brands alongside some of the most talented, creative people in the industry — many of whom have since gone on to become business leaders within the sector.

Having reached Account Director level, I was charged with recruiting talent for my own growing team as well as playing a key role in developing the agency’s digital offering and taking it to market. It was at this point that my passion for recruitment became apparent and I resolved to change my career.

I joined Spencer Harrington in 2007— a headhunting firm based in heart of the London— setting-up and managing the advertising and media division. It was there that the opportunity knocked and I was approached by a leading multi-national recruitment company and invited to set-up their advertising and media division here in Dubai.

Following a thoroughly enjoyable and rewarding two years, I felt that my experience of the communication industry combined with my recruitment training and MENA market knowledge, I was perfectly positioned to set-up my own enterprise.

MCG Associates was born in 2010 with a single vision: to connect the brightest talent with the best opportunities, enabling progress for businesses and individuals alike. My ambition then, as it still is today, is for MCG Associates to be regarded as a trusted partner with a reputation for empathy, integrity and delivering results.
