New business / billings: £227 Million

Summary of the year so far: "A very strong start. We’re continuing to grow, both locally and globally. Our huge Telus win means we’re opening new offices in Canada – our 19th country – and we’ve been listed in the Sunday Times’ International Track 200 as the UK’s fastest-growing ad agency internationally. A 100% pitch conversion rate. £227million in added billings, including fighting off stiff competition to retain Argos – a particular point of pride. We’re investing in talent, with a new Head Of Design, award-winning Creative Directors and senior Business Directors joining us to help realize our vision for the future. Creatively awarded integrated global campaigns for Samsung, Vertu and Lexus, with the Lexus ‘Strobe’ TV spot going viral and reaching over 156 million people around the world. Great, innovative new work for Big Yellow, Prince’s Trust, Green Flag, Find My Past and Carphone Warehouse. And much more to come, with exciting new campaigns on the horizon for Lexus, Argos and Talk Talk before the year’s end. It’s shaping up to be a very good year."
