Adweek has honoured Grey as its Global Agency of the Year for 2015. This is the group’s second win in the past three years for this prestigious honour.
“In 2015, the difference is the depth and breadth of what we have. We’ve had five or six big multinational account wins—big, famous brands,” said Jim Heeken, chairman and CEO of Grey Group.
“We are deeper and broader in terms of talent and the number of offices that have gotten on the success train. That’s the difference. To me, that’s the biggest thing,” he said.
Grey has enjoyed a series of great creative triumphs in the year including:
- 113 Cannes awards win at the annual Cannes Lions in 2015 (triple its take from the previous year).
- Grey was named Cannes lions North American Network of the Year.
- Grey group EMEA was named agency of the year at EACA Euro Effies 2015
- 12 Clio Awards win (with 3 gold for the Berlin SoundCloud and Ministry of Tourism & Transport creative executions).
Grey also enjoyed a robust new-business performance across all regions this year, adding global assignments in high-profile pitches from Emirates Airline, Motorola and Pandora Jewelry.
Grey’s worldwide revenue rose 5 percent in 2015 to just over $800 million. Digital revenue rose more than 20 percent compared to 2014.
Grey’s growing reputation as a Global creative powerhouse is reaffirmed constantly as the group continues to excel relentlessly in its global stride.
“Thanks and congratulations to each and every member of the Grey Group for their winning spirit, creativity and dedication. They have all made Grey the global gold standard in our industry,” Heekin said.
