MediaCom named M&M Media Agency of the Year

MediaCom has been named Media Agency of The Year at the 2009 M&M Awards. The MediaCom network beat all-comers to take this prestigious title, and also picked up two awards for individual campaigns for Braun and Mars Pedigree. In all, 11 MediaCom campaigns were shortlisted across 18 categories – more than three times as many as the next best agency.

Gavin Duke, Head of MediaCom’s International Unit, said, “We are delighted to receive this much-coveted award as recognition of the tremendous work our people have been doing, especially considering the tough economic climate we have all been operating in this past year. I am particularly pleased with the number of shortlisted entries we achieved, because I believe this reflects the MediaCom network’s growing ability to develop creative and effective campaigns across an ever greater range of brands, categories and territories.”

MediaCom’s winners came in the following categories: Best International Corporate Branding/CSR Campaign for Pedigree Adoption Drive and Best International Launch Campaign for Braun BodycruZer.

Stephen Allan, Chairman and CEO, MediaCom Worldwide, commented, “When I took on this job a year ago I realised that the MediaCom network was full of talented people producing great work, but that we maybe didn’t always get the recognition we deserved. Over the past 12 months, we have been rolling out a series of initiatives across the network designed to recognise, encourage and showcase the innovation and creativity that our people possess – so it’s wonderful to receive this very public acknowledgement of the excellent work they do for our clients around the world. We’re very proud to be named Agency of the Year, but we won’t be resting on our laurels.”
