About Us


Media Max was formed in 1993, by founding member Margaret Ashwin, in response to a need that developed in the advertising and marketing environment for highly trained, skilled and accountable media strategists.

Media Max endeavors to bring the media selection development closer to the agency client service and creative origination. This conjoint relationship has a direct effect on ensuring the deployment of the best possible creative and media solution to meet the advertising and marketing objectives.

Media Max currently handles billings on behalf of a portfolio of Blue Chip clients. Whilst the billing is substantial Media Max prides itself as providing an intimate one-on-one service to each client individually. Through its focus on planning and ability to be able to securely outsource its media buying to a specialist agency, we manage the entire process and service delivery standards are strictly controlled.

Media Max acts as a conduit for the process and interpretation of the client’s marketing needs and the creative agency’s conceptual thinking and marries it with the optimal media “buy”. A critical partner in the media planning process is the media owner and Media Max fosters long term relationships with these entities to deliver innovative and best practice solutions.
