Middle East Communication Network (MCN), one of the leading advertising and marketing communications agency networks in the MENA region, is pleased to announce Chris Skinner as the new Regional Managing Director of UM MENA.

A British national with more than 18 years’ industry experience, Skinner was educated at Leeds University in the UK and has worked in senior level positions at global agencies in some of the world’s most important media markets, including London and Hong Kong. He joins UM MENA after a six-year tenure at IPG’s Mediabrands in Hong Kong, where he successfully led UM and Initiative as Managing Director and led integrated campaigns for The Coca-Cola Group, Boots International, Cathay Pacific, Exxon Mobil, MasterCard, CNN International and Microsoft, among others. His leadership and creativity also saw the Hong Kong offices win 30 major international awards, a highlight being the two silver Cannes Lions for Coca-Cola Chok.

Ghassan Harfouche, Group CEO of MCN, said: “Chris has an impressive track record of success and his key strengths of developing strategic campaigns, building diversity and additional services – including digital assets – as well as pushing the boundaries of service, content and integration will prove great assets to MCN. The high-level appointment is further proof that the keystone to MCN evolving its product offering is acquiring the best human capital available.”

Paul Katrib, who has been leading UM MENA for the past three years will be moving on to pursue other professional projects.
