Despite slowdown, MediaCom maintains ability to grow

MediaCom’s new business machine slowed in 2019, and it was knocked by the loss of a key client in its biggest region, but its ability to bounce back, rebalance and grow remains impressive. Indeed, this did not stop it from winning big clients and leading on other fronts such as innovation and people.
