Branding agency Siegel+Gale has closed its office in Dubai.
The agency’s Loft Offices in Media City have been shut, although the company says it is to maintain a presence through Omnicom Group premises in both Dubai and Riyadh. The Dubai office had been the strategic branding agency’s only regional office.
Emmaclare Huntriss, marketing director at Siegel+Gale in London, said: “In order to better serve clients within the Middle East, there was a decision taken to service the region from a centralised EMEA headquarters in London. This decision was based on the fact that we believe there’s a deeper pool of world-class consultative and creative talent in the city. Much of the work that had come out of the Middle East had been a collaboration between London and the Middle East office.”
Huntriss added: “We are still committed to the region and we’re still committed to delivering solutions for major organisations who demand best-in-class branding.”
The Dubai office had served as a hub for the Middle East, Africa and South Asia, working with clients such as Qatar Telecom, the Islamic Development Bank and Saudi Aramco. Siegel+Gale was founded in the US in 1969 and is headquartered in New York. It has offices in Los Angeles, San Francisco, London, Shanghai, Beijing and Hamburg.
