Adweek names The Martin Agency top U.S. firm
- January 26, 2010
Adweek has named The Martin Agency its U.S. advertising agency of the year for 2009.
The advertising industry publication noted that the Richmond-based firm increased it revenue an estimated 12 percent in 2009. “A double-digit gain would be noteworthy in most any year, but it’s particularly impressive in a year when ‘flat is the new up,’ became a common, if wishful, refrain among agency executives.” Adweek said in a story about the award.
Last year, The Martin Agency won major accounts from Pizza Hut, Expedia, Sun Life Financial, the United States Tennis Association, Microsoft Retail, ChapStick, 1-800 Contacts and Manpower. Its existing accounts include Wal-Mart and Geico.
