MDC Partners

MDC Partners is a global advertising holding company that invests in agency partners in the areas of advertising, marketing, media management, technology, analytics and consumer insights, direct marketing, and strategic consulting.

Instead of integrating the firms, acquired agencies to continue to manage their own day-to-day operations. MDC provides support to the agencies in which it has invested including business strategy and financial resources.
