Agencies are still best-placed to offer advertisers impartial expertise and creative marketing solutions, according to Dentsu Aegis Network global chief executive Jerry Buhlmann.

Speaking to M&M Global at the group’s beach venue at Cannes Lions 2016 (watch interview HERE), Buhlmann says that, despite the claims of digital media and ad tech firms, agencies remain a marketers’ best friend – so long as they adapt to the new reality of the digital economy.

“In the context of this market, innovation is critical to success for brands. The only certainly over the next five years is the growth of the digital economy. Clients have to build digital economy businesses if they want to thrive and succeed,” says Buhlmann.

“We’re the only holding company with a vision, innovating the way brands are built. We see some big changes in the market, and some big opportunities. Being high growth and low legacy, which I think we are, gives us an advantage,” he adds, referring to the 46 acquisitions Dentsu Aegis Network has made over the past 18 months.
