LONDON, December 11, 2014 /PRNewswire/ --
OLIVER has capped its 10th anniversary year with recognition of its record growth in revenue income, after 12 months of overseas expansion and new business wins.
The agency has just topped the 'Top 20 Fastest Growing B2B Agencies' league table in the authoritative Agencies Benchmarking Report published by B2B Marketing magazine. In the same month, OLIVER made its debut in Campaign's Top 50 Advertising Agencies table.
In scooping the coveted slot in the B2B Marketing report, OLIVER beat off stiff competition from other agencies with 89% growth in year-on-year revenue income.
OLIVER, which places bespoke creative teams on-site for clients including Starbucks, Britvic, KPMG and 3M, was ranked 5th overall in the report's 'Top 70 B2B Marcomms Agencies' league, up from 15th last year.
The agency also featured in ad industry bible Campaign's Top 50 Advertising Agencies list for the first time. It was the fourth highest new entrant in the prestigious ranking that includes Ogilvy & Mather, BBH and Wieden & Kennedy.
Both Campaign and B2B Marketing rank their leagues based on agencies' new client wins and growth in business from existing clients.
Simon Martin, founder and chief executive of OLIVER, said:
"OLIVER's high ranking in these titles is proof that clients want what we provide: a new agency model that flexes with their changing needs. With ever more media channels and data available, the ability to test and execute quickly is a real differentiator for brands."
