Summary of the year so far: "Busy, busy, busy…since the start of 2013 we’ve been named number one media agency in the Sunday Times Top 100 Companies to Work for, Sponsorship Agency of the Year, Regional Media Agency of the Year and voted Agency of the Decade. We’ve opened a new creative department headed up by our first ever ECD, Maurice Van de Ven, experienced double digit growth in SEM operations and hired a new MD of SEO, Ben Mackay. Most importantly our work has been stronger than ever, from the partnership activity with Ant & Dec for Morrisons, the launch of GuardianWitness with EE, to creating our first ever TV ad for Healthspan. As well as that we have completely reinvented the way we look at media planning by launching our new purchase journey study ‘MEC Momentum’. Waiting for our first big win…but there’s plenty of time left for that!"
