The team of senior practitioners with extensive experience in blue-chip brands helps organisations to create winning strategies, specialising in brand development and marketing planning to power up marketing and boost business performance.
Neil Burrows, founder of SaturnFive, said: “We are building a 21st century, agile consulting business that gives clients flexibility and access to top talent. We have seen a growing need for our services in the UAE and our new hub and appointment of Ian will enable us to meet demand and build our market presence.
