After what can only be described as a ‘transformational’ twelve months of growth, Heard Agency, an independent Australian-based agency, has ranked 50 in the ‘2015 BRW Fast 100 Companies’. The win sees the agency step up from its 2014 ranking in the fastest start–up awards – the ‘2014 BRW Fast Starters’.
Paul Heard, founder and MD at Heard Agency, said the recognition is, “Testament to an agency that continues to move with the times to deliver innovative and adaptive solutions for clients.
“Since being named on the Fast Starters list in 2014, we’ve listened to the evolving needs of our clients and reshaped the agency almost from the ground up. In the last twelve months, we’ve become a solutions focused agency and our strategic refocus on content, PR and digital design has guided us to impressive growth figures,” said Heard.
“In our space, there’s simply no resting on your laurels. Our strong growth has only been possible thanks to the ambition and drive of each one of our staff across Sydney, Melbourne and internationally in Los Angeles.
“With a lot of great talent on board and a growing international clientele, we are looking forward to exceeding our growth figures again in 2016.”
Heard said next year’s priorities include “continuing to evolve the business, focusing on innovation to improve measurement of success and return on investment, and striving to be the best in our chosen specialist fields of FMCG, property, infrastructure and professional services”.
