Synergy named Elite agency status in DRUM census!

Amazing! The results are in for The Drum Independent Agencies Census 2015 and we’re incredibly proud to say that Synergy Creative has achieved 8th place in the Elite table.

The Drum Census is all about showcasing independent agencies in our industry. This year 245 agencies took part, representing a whopping £1.5bn turnover and 11,000 employees. Each agency is ranked on three measures of success: financial performance, client satisfaction and peer recommendations; the 10 best agencies across all three are then re-ranked in what’s called the Elite table.

Synergy has steamed into this Elite table for 2015, taking eighth place in the 1-25 employees group. It’s a huge pat on the back not just from the industry but, more importantly, from our clients.

 

“We’re absolutely thrilled to have been ranked as one of the Elite agencies,” says Gemma McGrattan, Synergy Director. For me, it pays tribute to Synergy’s absolute focus on our proposition: brand engagement from the inside out.”

 

In recent months this inside-out approach has helped Synergy win some really exciting clients including ODEON, Caterpillar and Aviva. Now, Synergy is in a strong position to keep growing both in the UK and internationally – “These are exciting times for us,” says Gemma. “And this Elite ranking is like the icing on the cake.”

The story behind the census

The background:

The Drum census, conducted in partnership with the Recommended Agency Register and sponsored by Graph, showcases the success of independent agencies in a sector dominated by large networks.

The stats:

This year 245 agencies took part in the Drum census across the UK, representing £1.5 bn turnover and 11,000 employees.

The rankings:

The Financial rankings: These are based on six measures including turnover, growth, and gross profit.

The Client rankings: Carried out in partnership with the Recommended Agency Register, clients rank their agency’s service, creativity & innovation, effectiveness, strategic thinking, value and budget.

The Peer rankings: These voted for by via the Drum website – over 2,800 people voted this year.

The Elite rankings:

The Elite table recognises agencies with consistent performance across their specific size groups. Agencies must place in all three tables (financial, client & peer) to be eligible. They are then ranked and the top ten are then re-ranked separately against one another in order to create the final elite table.
