NEW YORK, Dec. 16, 2016 /PRNewswire/ -- Closing out a record-breaking year, McCann New York today announced that SHOOT Magazine has named it "Agency of the Year."

"This is an amazing achievement," said Chris Macdonald, President, McCann North America. "We have been on a journey over the past few years and this recognition is a great signal of how far we have come."

"In the past year, we have produced a lot of great work for all of our clients, and this honor is testament to their dedication and commitment to elevating our creative product."
SHOOT credits McCann NY's 2016 diverse body of work with "that sense of humanity, purpose, surprise and breaking new ground" and a collaborative culture.
"There is an incredibly strong creative culture at McCann," said Eric Silver, North American Chief Creative Officer. "This year was all about the creative, strategy, production and account teams working together to create campaigns that were technologically groundbreaking, socially aware and culturally relevant."
