17 August 2021 2 min. read

SaturnFive Consulting, a boutique British marketing consultancy, has entered the Middle East with a new office in Dubai. 

“Post pandemic businesses are in urgent need of highly responsive, flexible support. We have seen a growing need for our services in the UAE and our new hub will enable us to meet that demand,” said Neil Burrows, founder of SaturnFive. 

Burrows founded SaturnFive Consulting in 2018 following a 30-year marketing career in the automotive sector. He among others served as Head of Marketing for Audi in the UK, led Nissan’s European branding and marketing strategy, and headed the sales & marketing function at Paragon Automotive Group, a provider of fleet management and technical services.

Since its inception, SaturnFive Consulting has grown its footprint from its headquarters in Oxford to also span offices in London, Cape Town and Vancouver. “Our team of senior practitioners specialise in brand development and marketing planning, and help organisations with creating winning marketing strategies, and bringing those to action.” 

One client the firm recently worked with, an automotive group in the UK, lauded SaturnFive Consulting for its “pragmatic and grounded approach combined with excellent sector experience”, while another client in Canada (a B2B services provider) applauded the consultancy for its “valuable expertise” in supporting the development of a new marketing strategy.

SaturnFive Consulting is now bringing this track record to the Middle East, with the aim of nestling itself in a crowded market. “This is an exciting time in the marketing and branding space for consultancies and agencies and we look forward to supporting businesses in the region, and to developing our market presence,” said Burrows. 

Leading the charge in the Middle East is Ian Butlin, a former Hilton marketing director and TBWA and Zeenah executive who has been appointed Associate Director. “Ian is a senior, experienced and well-connected marketer and will add tremendous value to our clients,” commented Burrows. 

SaturnFive Consulting focuses on clients in multiple sectors, including automotive, technology, hospitality, real estate, transport and travel.
