ADFX Ranking 20

Welcome to Carat, the world's leading independent media planning & buying specialist and the market-leader in digital and non-traditional media solutions.

Owned by global media group Aegis Group plc, listed on the London stock exchange, the Carat network employs more than 5,000 people in 70 countries worldwide, with a team of just over 60 based in Dublin.

Carat defined the sector when we were established as the world's first media independent in 1968. We are now Europe's largest media network, a position we have held for more than 15 years.

Today, advances in digital technology and changing consumer behaviour have created an era of unprecedented complexity and opportunity for clients. Media is now an ecosystem that includes bought, owned and earned communications.

In this new era, Carat is redefining the role of a media agency. Our people understand how media can drive business value better than anyone else. We move beyond the provision of media savings and exploit the new era of media to deliver greater business value to our clients.

Redefining Media.
