CHICAGO, April 16, 2019 /PRNewswire/ -- Ad Age has named Leo Burnett an Agency to Watch on the 2019 A-List award rankings. The A-List pays tribute to what Ad Age calls "the big, bold thinkers – the risk takers that are shaping the future of marketing."
"The Agency to Watch honor on the Ad Age A-List recognizes the hard work of our people and our clients who made this possible," said Andrew Swinand, chief executive officer, Leo Burnett Group North America. "Our clients choose us because we pride ourselves on effective creative solutions, and Ad Age has likewise recognized our industry contributions. I am so proud of our team and I know that the best is yet to come."
As an Agency to Watch, Leo Burnett has been recognized for consistently delivering the creative solutions that drive business.
"[T]he shop is showing signs of a comeback: It was invited to more than 130 pitches in 2018, and although it had to turn down 80 percent because of conflicts, the agency says it won 72 percent of those in which it participated," says Ad Age. "The wins for Publicis Groupe produced $90 million worth of new business[.]"
2019 marks the third time in seven years that Leo Burnett has been an honoree on the Ad Age A-List. In both 2015 and 2012, the agency was named an Agency to Watch, earning the accolades for new business wins and impactful work, such as "Like a Girl" for Always.
