In August 2021, author Michael Farmer was invited by Mat Baxter, the new CEO of Huge, the global digital agency owned by Interpublic, to become an independent “ fly on the wall” observer to record the strategic and operational transformation of Huge. Baxter was Huge’ s fifth CEO in four years. Huge had had a history of slow growth, client churn and marginal profitability. This book is the riveting story of Huge's journey through its transformation, with a revised mission, a new line of fixed-price products, and a single global organization that would permit Huge to help its clients accelerate their top line growth rates. "It’ s one thing to organize a change plan that assigns responsibilities to senior executives,” mused Baxter, “ and another thing to have the sum of their efforts add up to something greater. That is what we have achieved." Madison Avenue Makeover provides a unique insight into how one company changed in order to survive, and at the same time, redefined the advertising agency business.
