Google has been named the most dynamic brand by IPG Mediabrands in the network’s inaugural D100 list.
Amazon was second on the list, followed by Samsung, then Nike and Intel. Google has also been named the most valuable brand in the world and is currently second in Havas Media’s most meaningful brands.
IPG’s list – in partnership with Wharton University of Pennsylvania – looks at brands that are agile, responsive, innovative and sociable. More than 10,000 consumers were surveyed across the globe to see which brands are the most dynamic.

IPG Mediabrands CEO, Henry Tajer, said: “The D100, along with the data that we’ve collected to identify the world’s most dynamic brands is incredible.

Mat Baxter, global chief strategy officer and creative chairman added: “This is a hugely important study because it clearly demonstrates the urgent need for brands to move away from outdated brand measures and embrace the dynamic score – something that we’ve proven is tightly correlated with the future revenue growth and momentum of companies.”
