Once again, members of the UM family around the globe are at the forefront of the media landscape. Here are a few examples of UM in Action.

UM is proud to announce that Eileen Kiernan, Global CMO has been selected to sit on both the shortlisting and final jury at this year’s M&M Global Awards.  Also selected for the shortlisting jury is UM’s Regional Strategy Lead, LATAM – Mario Mejia.  The two will review work submitted by advertisers and agencies as well as ultimately help decide who takes home the coveted honors.
