Clear M&C Saatchi Singapore Invests in Growth by Widening Talent Pool

London, UK
Meghan Dougherty and Ferdie Jorge join the team as strategy director and managing director, Philippines

Clear M&C Saatchi ('Clear'), a global growth consultancy specialising in brand, experience, and innovation, is investing in their long-term success in Singapore by bringing in both local and overseas talent. 

Clear Singapore’s managing director, Samy Mardolker, has been steadily building his team at a time when many agencies are choosing to exit this market. The decision to make a significant investment in talent at home and away reflects a strong commitment to serve an increasingly global and diverse client base across the region. 

Clear Singapore is delighted to announce the internal relocation of Meghan Dougherty from the US and the appointment of Asia-based Ferdie Jorge as managing director, Philippines, effective immediately. 

Meghan has been an integral part of the US team since 2014, when she started at Clear New York. She joins Clear Singapore as strategy director following a record-breaking growth year for the US. Meghan will focus on driving brand consulting work and expanding Clear’s footprint in Asia. She brings a tremendous amount of client experience and business acumen to the role. She is an MBA graduate and in her time at Clear she has led pivotal projects for key Fortune 500 clients around the world, including across Asia. 

Ferdie is a seasoned insights professional with 25 years of experience helping brands grow, innovate and solidify purpose and positioning across Southeast Asia. He has partnered with the world’s top brands as a qualitative practitioner, client partner and digital research leader. Prior to Clear, he worked at leading market research agencies including Ipsos and Kantar Millward Brown.

Samy Mardolker commented: “Flexible working across borders has always been core to our team’s success, and it’s fantastic to see our global colleagues come together to further develop our business in such an exciting market. We’re thrilled to welcome Meghan to our team and we’re excited at the growth potential in Asia with Ferdie on board.

Meghan’s background in consulting, branding and design and Ferdie’s extensive experience with clients in the region will be a huge asset to our team and client offer. We see this as an investment in both our long-term growth in Singapore and in two valued team members’ career journeys within Clear.”
