HEAD OF DELOITTE DIGITAL: ‘AGENCIES COPY US’
Consultancies are trying to “set the tone for the future”, according to the head of Deloitte Digital, and aren’t interested in emulating existing agencies.
“I’d actually say the agencies are trying to copy the Deloitte Digitals of the world,” Andy Main told Ad Exchanger.
“Agencies with a media-heavy bias to their business model are struggling to shed that as a main source of revenue, but they can’t change quickly enough,” he added, as he observed that it is Facebook and Google who are “eating the agencies’ lunch”, not the consultants.
That being the case, he has no interest in moving into the media space, preferring to partner with media agencies, placement companies and the duopoly as necessary.
