FCB/SIX Named Ad Age Data/Analytics Agency of the Year
Win Marks Banner Year in Agency’s Three-Year History
Toronto, April 23, 2019 – FCB/SIX, the Toronto-based unit of Interpublic Group’s FCB, announced it was named Data/Analytics Agency of the Year by Advertising Age earlier this week. Selected from more than 200 agencies, this coveted annual award honors the top, forward-thinking and creative innovators in the advertising industry.
FCB/SIX has propelled double-digit growth every year since its inception. It’s also winning accolades for providing specialized, highly effective data, technology and one-to-one creative ideas that drive ROI for clients, including the recent launch of the globally recognized platform Destination Pride for PFLAG Canada. “Destination Pride,” the pride flag reimagined as a dynamic data-visualization of the world’s LGBTQ laws and social sentiment, has won big at every major industry award show – including being named Canada’s most awarded campaign at the Cannes Lions.
Ad Age cites that, “even with 75 percent of FCB/SIX work coming from CRM, technology consulting and analytics, the agency still managed to win 13 Cannes Lions in 2018, including Gold in Mobile, Design and Creative Data,” as an impressive factor toward their success.
The agency, with offices in Toronto, Montreal and New York, services clients across North America and works with leading brands, including BMW, Johnson & Johnson Consumer Companies (Listerine, Aveeno, Neutrogena and Nicorette), Acuvue and does business-to-business work for eBay.
“We are honored to be awarded the prestigious Data/Analytics Agency of the Year accolade by Ad Age,” said FCB/SIX President Andrea Cook. “This is so much more than an industry acknowledgment. It’s a huge, well-deserved recognition for our teams and clients around the world, and I’m so proud to lead this group.”
