OMD Worldwide has been named Global Media Agency of the Year by Adweek.

Last year, OMD won more than 300 pitches globally – the largest of all its competitors – at the same time more than doubling their retention rate and improving client ratings four consecutive times throughout 2018.

They also remained the most medalled agency at Cannes Lions Festival of Creativity.

The win comes off the back of OMD Australia’s best year ever, with a series of new business wins including Suncorp, Qantas Global, Belong, Activision and The Fork.

Their sustained commercial success over the last 18 months has seen OMD Australia surge to the Number 1 “Highest Billing Media Agency”, according to the latest RECMA Global Billings Ranking.

Most recently, OMD Australia has seen extremely positive results and rankings in the latest Media i survey.

At a time where Media i reported some of the lowest agency sentiment scores in the survey’s history, OMD is bucking the trend maintaining confidence with and inspiring their people and media owner partners.

OMD global CEO Florian Adamski said: “None of this would have been possible without the hard work, talent and adaptability of our people nor the trust placed in us by our clients and partners.

“I’m incredibly proud of what we have achieved and look forward to building on this foundation in 2019 and beyond.”

OMD Australia CEO Aimee Buchanan said: “This accolade is a fantastic acknowledgment of the success we have seen locally over the last 12 months.

“We have really focused on our people, bolstering our product, maintaining our cultural leadership and continuing to drive sustainable growth.

“That momentum has put us in a great position at the start of the year and we look forward to it continuing throughout 2019”.
