Maxus UK is celebrating after securing Media Agency of the Year at the industry’s prestigious Media Week Awards that took place yesterday.
Maxus was awarded the Media Agency of the Year accolade above five other agencies, including Manning Gottlieb OMD, PHD, the7stars, M2M and sister agency MEC.
The award recognises financial success, excellent work and client retention and acquisition. The last 12 months has been a key year for Maxus, winning the largest media account in the UK for the last five years – L’Oréal – worth £135 million, along with Npower, Royal British Legion, Avis Budget Group and Air France. The agency has also expanded its offer to clients with two new arms – Maxus for Business and Maxus Partnerships. Most recently, leader Lindsay Pattison was promoted to global CEO, with former MD Nick Baughan stepping into the CEO role in the UK.
Baughan, said: “Maxus has had a fantastic year – we’ve had the most sustained growth of the top 10 media agencies and this acknowledgement is the crowning glory for any media agency. We have an incredibly talented team who continue to produce great work and fantastic ideas for our clients."
