Ten years ago, Peter and Andy turned a long-standing vision into reality.
They had often shared their frustrations with the agencies they had both been hiring.
Frustration with directors pitching for work, then leaving inexperienced staff to do the work.
Frustration with long periods of inactivity. Frustration with feeling like an inconvenience.
So they built something completely different.
An agency where directors don’t just pitch, they spend their time supporting and delivering for clients. An agency which only employs senior-level client-facing staff. An agency which rejects contracts so that clients are never tied in.
The political and media environment in which we operate has been turbulent in the decade since. But Message Matters has been a constant. Our values today are the same as the day we started.
