The Agency Rated No 1 Independent Agency

Published on Monday, 18th May 2015, contributed by AgencyUK

After a recent wave of awards success, Bath-based integrated marketing firm, The Agency has been announced as the No 1 independent agency in the UK, according to The Drum’s annual national Agency Census.

The research, conducted in partnership with the prestigious Recommended Agency Register, ranks agencies on three metrics to provide measures of success – financial performance, client satisfaction and peer recommendations. The census highlights those with the best average rankings across all three, earning them the coveted ‘elite’ status.

The Agency is ranked as the Number 1 independent elite agency in the category of under 25 staff for the second year running. The Agency was also awarded the same accolade in 2014, the first time this was achieved by an agency outside London.

Managing Director of The Agency, Sammy Mansourpour said: “We're absolutely delighted to have been awarded the UK's no 1 small independent agency. The census is so much more meaningful than awards because in its assessment, peer review, client review and financial performance are all participating factors. The fact it has come for the second year in a row is even more unexpected, but testament to the hard work and dedication of our people and our client partners.”

The news follows a wave of recent awards success after it was announced this week that The Agency’s creative team has gained its record number of nominations in The Drum’s annual Chip Shop Creative Awards after their work was shortlisted in five categories. Last month, The Agency picked up the top award for Strategic Thinking at the prestigious RAR awards which are based entirely on client reviews, feedback and ratings.
