Shaune Jordaan is the CEO of Saatchi & Saatchi Synergize – Big Love meets Big Data in a union of unmatched creativity and digital prowess.
Saatchi & Saatchi Synergize boasts a team of 65 professionals who are based in both Cape Town, Hungary, London and Johannesburg.
Hailing from the small town of Margate, Shaune received a rugby scholarship to study at Pietermaritzburg where he went on to complete a BA degree in English and Communications. He has had a diverse career, starting as an English teacher and rugby coach at St Charles College before moving to Cape Town to pursue his advertising career.
For Shaune, “nothing is impossible” and the challenge of nurturing potential that other people have yet to recognise is tremendously exciting. Under Shaune leadership, Saatchi & Saatchi Synergize has developed into an award-winning, full-service digital agency and Google Analytics Certified Partner. According to Shaune, “The combination of Saatchi & Saatchi’s creativity and Synergize’s analytical and measurement aspects will deliver results driven campaigns using extensive reporting tools, and will give Saatchi & Saatchi Synergize a strong competitive edge.”
Justin Billingsley, COO of Saatchi & Saatchi EMEA, sums up the new partnership well when he says, “”When we look at potential partners it is not just about capabilities. We are very proud and protective of our ‘Nothing is Impossible’ culture at Saatchi & Saatchi. What’s amazing about Synergize is not just that they are awesome at what they do, but their culture, under the inspirational leadership of Shaune Jordaan, is a natural fit with ours.”
Shaune has the ability to see the best in people. He has an innate ability to understand brands and to translate this knowledge into insightful digital campaigns. He spends his spare time with his lovely wife Amy, climbing mountains and traveling to remote destinations. He is passionate about start up businesses and ventures- if you have a start up idea contact Shaune.
This blog is also dedicated to his daily life stories and adventures- some strange others even stranger.
Shaune believes in living life to the fullest and cares little what others think about him.
