Bath based Planning, Creative, Technology and Media firm The Agency have dominated the prestigious Marketing Industry Network Awards this year, picking up four awards out of six nominations. The Agency team saw off stiff competition from larger established agencies to take The SW Best Marketing Business of the Year, Best UK Small Agency of the Year, Best B2B Strategy and Creative Campaign of the Year as well as the Chairman’s Award.

The MI Network Awards are a particular coup for The Agency’s new Creative Director Phil Blackmore who joined the team in January with the remit to help raise the company’s profile and cement their reputation as one of the UK’s leading creative outfits. The Agency already has a strong reputation for Planning and Technology, and recently opened a Media buying division.

“We are absolutely delighted to have been recognised by the MI Network judging panel, and are particularly happy to receive the Chairman’s Award. It’s all down to the hard work put in by our team and our clients throughout the year and that makes these awards very special. We’ve always known we have an exceptional team and an agency built for the future of our industry. We’re all looking forward to another high performance year in 2014 and this gives us a fantastic foundation for future growth,” says Saman Mansourpour, Managing Director, The Agency.

The Best B2B Strategy and Creative Campaign Award was given in recognition of recent work undertaken for the Bristol & Bath Inward Investment Service, which is a collaboration between Bristol and Bath City Council. The campaign has received international acclaim and recently won a Creative Award at MIPIM, the world’s largest property expo held in Cannes last April.

In the past few years The Agency has enjoyed staggering year on year growth, with a 36% increase in gross profit for the year ending 2013. They currently rank 45 in the UK’s Top 100 Agencies* and feature in The Drum Magazine’s Design Top 100, Digital Top 100 and Advertising Top 100.
