This week Sydney-based media agency Awaken revealed it made the Fast Starters for 2018-19, the list of the fastest growing companies in Australia as chosen by The Australian Financial Review.

This is an extraordinary achievement for Awaken, which has grown from a kitchen table start up into a force to be reckoned within the media and advertising landscape in Australia in just five years.

“This is something we have wanted to achieve as a team for several years, but our victory is bittersweet due to the timing”, says Awaken founder and CEO Chris Parker.

“I’m extremely proud of the Awaken team and humbled by the trust and support of our clients, and although it will be impossible to really celebrate this victory in the current climate, we are still enormously honoured by the recognition.”

This impressive growth has been the result of hard work and dedication, and Parker puts the company’s success largely down to the quality of his team, which has a core base of staff in Sydney and works with dedicated contractors around the world.

“This is a spark of light during an incredibly dark time, but I want to take a moment to appreciate it because this is such a testament to the skill, intelligence and dedication of my rock star team”, he said.

“None of us know what will happen in the future, so for now, I hope each and every person who has worked with Awaken over the years knows they have each been a part of this special moment.”

2019 was a landmark year for Awaken, with the global yet tight-knit team offering clients a strong and more personal alternative to the larger agencies, and the team winning the media accounts for Panasonic Australia and Café del Mar globally.

These join Awaken’s already impressive client list, which includes Kraken Rum, Angostura Bitters, Energizer, Armor All, Macao Government Tourism, Hino Trucks (a Toyota Company), and Jose Cuervo.
