The WPP-owned media agency won the coveted award after coming top of a shortlist that included MediaCom, Carat and Vizeum.

MEC outperformed the market during one of the toughest years in recent memory, reporting a 5% year-on-year increase in billings against a market-wide decline of 12%.

This year's 30 under 30 judging panel also selected four of the agency's younger employees in its final line up, which was double that of any other agency.

MEC clocked up £417m in billings in the year to July 2009 and also secured £130m of new business, including the much-coveted £85m Orange business.
