Founded in 1990 as Manning Gottlieb Media, we were bought by Omnicom in 1998 becoming Manning Gottlieb OMD, joining Omnicom Media Group's leading media network, OMD.
Thanks to our creative and effective work, our awards success is unparalleled and we are the most awarded agency in the history of the IPA Effectiveness Awards. We are proud to say that we were the most awarded agency in 2018, with nine Media Week Awards. We were also incredibly proud to have won two Golds and a Silver at the UK Effie Awards. Manning Gottlieb OMD was named one of the Best Places to Work in 2019 and 2020 by Campaign, Campaign's Agency of the Year in 2019 and in 2020 went on to be named Campaign's Global Media Agency of the Year.
Since hitting our milestone 30th birthday in 2020, it was only right to continue of transformation and rebrand as MG OMD. Media creativity is at the heart of MG OMD's DNA. We are an agency born out of an overarching ambition to be recognised for producing great media work and to think as differently as possible about media. Above all else, we live by the ambition that creativity drives effectiveness and our body of work over the years reflects this. We have a team of 450+ people who are driven by our overarching ambition to be the most progressive media agency in the UK, working across an enviable client base, including the John Lewis Partnership, HM Government, Specsavers, Virgin Media, Estée Lauder Companies, Nissan and Pladis.
We believe that, in our industry, it is ultimately people who make the difference. It is our people who create the ideas. It is our people who deliver the media communications solutions and who go that step further to make a difference for our clients. So, true to our ethos, we work hard at creating a spirit and atmosphere that inspires our people to be considerate, honest and professional whilst also being stimulating, imaginative and inspirational. We want people who are great to work with, fun to be with and totally committed.
As a result, we continue YOY to invest heavily in the development of our people, so much so that our training and wellbeing programme, now known as The Gym and Spa, has been awarded the prestigious CPD Gold accreditation from the IPA (Institute of Practitioners in Advertising) for the past ten years, with us achieving CPD Platinum status in 2015, 2016, 2017, 2018, 2019 and 2020.
