While we are proud of Tihama’s considerable experience in both media and advertising, we understand the value of thinking beyond our borders. Over the years, we have selected and introduced to The Kingdom, through investment, acquisition or ownership, a number of highly respected international companies in various fields of specialization.

Partnerships have been key to the growth seen over recent years. Even more important has been our choice of partners. A case in point is the enhanced relationship with the world’s leading communications group, WPP.
A British multinational advertising and public relations group with its headquarters in London, the “Big Five” group has a large number of advertising networks, public relations, media and market researchers, across a wide spectrum spanning many companies including Ogilvy, Wunderman Thompson, Young & Rubicam, Gray, IMRB, Millward Brown, Burson-Marsteller, Hill & Knowlton, TNS, and Group M.
Both in the Kingdom and across the region, Tihama holds significant investments in a number of WPP companies such as Ogilvy, WundermanThompson, Mediacom, Midshare, and Mirum.
