MPG Media Contacts has appointed Hamid Habib as the new managing partner for its 30-member Catalyst unit.

The team has been designed to help the agency develop big ideas beyond ‘bought media’ and support MPG Media Contacts’ creative services division, which contains specialists developing content, mobile, web and social media solutions.
