After one of the most tumultuous periods in its history, MediaCom is back with a fresh, new approach that it hopes will shift perceptions that it has not only cleaned up its act but now offers a far more holistic media proposition. 

"There's no handbook for working on a business that's been through what MediaCom had. But, what I found was a big gap in the external perception and the internal reality of the business," MediaCom CEO Sean Seamer says.

"Sure, we were under pressure and people had been through a tough period but there was a really strong undercurrent of passion for the business."

We also sat down with six less-familiar MediaCom faces to find out what it's really like to be part of the culture.

  • Gemma Hunter - global ECD and head of MediaCom Beyond Advertising
  • Tim Hull - content and connections manager (P&G)
  • Mike Deane - national head of strategy
  • Catherine Dingli - manager content and connections planning
  • Kellie Dawson - group director, Brisbane
  • Adriana Zaknic - group director of activations and investment
