Agency Report 2009: Digital Agencies Grow 15%

AdAge this week released its 2009 Agency Report where Digital Marketing agency iCrossing is highly ranked throughout the influential league tables.

The report, produced by the Ad Age DataCenter, ranks more than 900 advertising, marketing-services and media agencies based on 2008 revenue. The resulting lists are recognised industry wide as the authoritative benchmark for agency achievement.

Specifically, in the Top U.S. Search Marketing Agencies list, iCrossing is the number one search marketing agency amongst the top 25 US agencies for 2008. This fantastic achievement tops last year’s number two position for the company and is a reflection on recent new business wins.

In the top U.S. Digital Agencies league table, iCrossing moved up one slot to number 11 and along with Rosetta, are the only two independent agencies featured in the top 15, making iCrossing the second largest independent agency on the list.

iCrossing also features as number 45 in the World's Top 50 Agency Companies, up from 48th place last year, an impressive achievement for an independent agency.

Don Scales, President and Chief Executive Officer of iCrossing commented: “In the current tough economic climate this is welcome news, particularly as we are measured competitively against agencies affiliated with large conglomerates. I am so proud of our global team who work tirelessly and passionately for these achievements. This report also shows that more agencies are now entering the digital space however I am confident our consistent high achievements remain appealing to current and prospective clients alike.”
