Summary of the year so far: "2014 has so far seen m/SIX consolidate the success of 2013 and continue to grow the agency at a pace. We have successfully transitioned the New Business wins from the back end of 2013, namely DC Thomson, Pru Health, Pru Protect & Under Armour and added to this list with appointments on TalkTalk Business, Princess Cruises and CBRE. We have built our Content / SEO division into a team of 4 now working across Carphone Warehouse, Under Armour, DC Thomson, Pru Health and Britvic. We are also continuing to develop our Global Network following wins in APAC on Disney and in the US on Qatar, Wall Street Journal and Zumba Fitness.
Recent appointments of Simone Galletly as head of strategic planning and Matthew White as strategic client lead on Carphone demonstrate our investment in senior strategic talent and this is underpinned by the launch of Velocity Planning, a real-time planning approach that focuses on the application of data and puts content at the heart of what we do. This enables us to leverage our position as the only agency supported by the trading might of GroupM but with the agility and passion of a boutique outfit."
