Double award triumph for ICG
Warton-based ICG has emerged victorious for the second time in a month after being been named as The Northern Marketing Business of The Year 2014.The full-service creative agency fought off stiff competition from 10 other agencies and picked up the major honour at the prestigious The Drum Network Awards 2014.
Organised by leading marketing magazine and the UK’s largest marketing website, The Drum, the national awards now in their sixth year, recognise and reward the UK’s best agency businesses.The team was presented with the award in front of a packed Emirates Stadium in London.
This marks the second accolade for ICG in one month; it recently won the coveted ‘The Most Entrepreneurial PR/Marketing Firm of the Year’ at The North West Entrepreneur of the Year Awards 2014.Simon Couchman, creative director at ICG, said: “Being hailed as the North’s leading marketing agency is a great honour and it’s a huge achievement to be recognised by the industry and by our peers.
“We were up against some much larger and well established agencies and so it is a fantastic accomplishment to even have made the shortlist.“Winning this award highlights our ability to create effective marketing campaigns while delivering excellent customer service and it will really raise ICG’s profile on a national level.
“The double win follows what has been a momentous year for ICG as we celebrate 20 years in business and we look forward to driving the agency forward and working hard to make sure the next 12 months are as successful.” In 2014 ICG has welcomed several new clients to its roster including Roots Hand Cooked Vegetable Crisps and Gladstone’s Library, and has seen its team expand to 16.
