Summary of the year so far: "Already this year, Maxus has been confirmed as the media agency with the most sustained growth of the Top 10 (RECMA).
We have been focused on realising our ambition to make L’Oreal a brilliant and successful account to work on and bringing 35 new people onboard to help this has made a busy start to the year.
That step-change in growth has been carefully managed but we have still found the time to win the energy giant npower, plus a win for the Royal British Legion with a fabulous campaign ‘Remember’ live now.
Our two new divisions, Maxus Partnerships and Maxus for Business have been flying: some brilliant partnership work for Barclays, Jeep, Twinings amongst many and M4B continues to expand its remit with existing clients and three new client wins.
We‘ve also looked within our own network to enhance the skills and services we can offer; so more work with our creative technology division Metalworks.
And so our work is getting better; successes such as the Grand Prix win in the IAB Awards.
