Sandy R McIntosh, Executive Creative Director, M&C Saatchi UAE

Sandy turned his back on a promising career as a lifeguard to become a TV creative at STV in his native Scotland.

Today, Sandy is ECD of M&C Saatchi UAE, leading a team of fearless creatives responsible for bringing change-making work to their clients across the Middle East.

Leading to this point, Sandy has had a range of roles across agency and client-side in industries including Tech, F&B, Automotive and Telecom. Which ultimately led to him becoming the region’s youngest ECD in 2020, responsible for the creative output for Porsche across the Middle East and Africa.

Sandy is a native of Edinburgh but has been lucky enough to live in the US, Middle East and UK.

He is still vigilant around swimming pools.
