14 May 2015 Announced at a friendly breakfast event at The Drum’s London offices yesterday morning, amongst the smell of bacon sandwiches and fresh coffee, ClearPeople was delighted to make its debut in the marketing magazine’s official rankings of independent agencies in the UK. The 2015 Independent Agency Census is the Drum’s second annual report reviewing the performance of independently owned agencies, creating industry benchmarks and identifying the key players in the sector. It ranks agencies on three criteria: financial, client and peer performance, across four sample groups based on number of agency staff. With 50 staff across London and Alicante, Spain, ClearPeople featured in all three polls in the 26-50 staff category including placing 14th in the Peer Poll. Katya Linossi, Managing Director of ClearPeople says: “This is a fantastic achievement for ClearPeople to feature in the Drum’s Independent Agency Census. As an independent digital agency in a market dominated by large networks, we understand that competition is fierce and it is great that the contribution of those who remain independent is recognised.” She continues: “With over £1.04 billion of revenue reported by the independent agencies who took part in the census, it is clear that the industry is booming. And we’re so pleased that our contemporaries have recognised our standing in the market by coming 14th in the Peer Poll. We strive to keep our clients happy by providing the best technical consulting and digital strategy services and will use this league table as a benchmark for delivering even better work in the future.” The full results of the Independent Agency Census can be found online here.
