Ketchum Crowned Agency of the Decade by CorpComms Magazine

Paul Middleton

LONDON, 25 November, 2015 – Ketchum was named Agency of the Decade at the CorpComms Magazine Awards in London last night.  The Agency of the Decade category was one of four Decade of Excellence awards aimed at giving special recognition to the agencies, campaigns and individuals that have made the most impact in the UK during the ten years in which the CorpComms Awards have been celebrated.

Describing her reaction to the award, Denise Kaufmann, Partner and CEO of Ketchum London said:

“The CorpComms Decade of Excellence Awards are something really special. They’re an opportunity to take a step back and examine which agencies have made a genuine impact through their creativity, contribution and counsel.  To be named Agency of the Decade by some of the UK’s leading communication figures is a huge achievement and something I know the whole team, and our clients, are incredibly proud of.”

The CorpComms Awards are recognised as the leading awards scheme for UK corporate communicators.  The Agency of the Decade category invited entrants to detail how their firm had made an impact through creativity, thought leadership and client satisfaction over the last ten years.  The judges were impressed by how Ketchum had consistently delivered highly inventive campaigns, the counsel it offers to clients and how it shared valuable research and resources with the industry.

These awards follow a number of high honours bestowed to Ketchum and its leadership team in the last year. Earlier in November, David Gallagher, CEO of the firm’s European operations and chairman of its U.K. office, was honoured with the Public Relations Consultants Association’s Mark Mellor Award.  In June, Ketchum won three Cannes Lions. In May, Ketchum won a total of 10 SABRE Awards at the Americas and EMEA SABRE Awards events. In April, the firm won Global Non-profit Campaign of the Year at the PRWeek Global Awards in London.
