MEC Global Solutions powers up the agency’s digital offer

MUMBAI: MEC Global Solutions has made three new senior hires - Ben Rickard, Richard Davies and Mudit Jaju. Bolstering the team with three renowned digital experts, MEC demonstrates how it is setting out to embrace the ongoing seismic shift in data and digital in order to grow clients’ business.


Ben Rickard joins as digital partner and will be responsible for driving the agency’s mobile offering for clients across EMEA with particular focus on how mobile devices sit at the core of an “always-on” world through the intelligent application of data. Rickard comes from JWT where he headed up their mobile division and was responsible for the launch of JWT NOW.


Richard Davies too joins as digital partner and will be responsible for heading up digital on the global Vodafone account. With nearly 20 years of experience across search, customer insight and CRM, and most recently as Media Partner at VCCP, Davies brings with him a fresh view on how digital and data is evolving and shaping business.


Mudit Jaju joins as digital partner.  A WPP MBA fellow, he graduated from Yale and worked at comScore. In his new role, Jaju will be working on digital product development and innovation initiatives across clients.


Global Solutions and EMEA chief digital officer Jeff Hyams said, “Ben, Richard and Mudit are highly experienced digital experts from very different backgrounds. They join MEC with new perspectives and will create an exciting dynamic which we believe is critical in order to drive the digital agenda for our clients. We have a vision of how we need to evolve and part of this is through creating a thriving digital culture across the whole of our business.


Encouraging new ways of thinking and doing and adding key specialist talent helps this process.”


Taking the recent senior hires in the analytics and insight team into account, this strengthening within digital further cements MEC Global Solutions and MEC’s EMEA headquarter as a centre of international excellence for clients across the region.
