This marks the fourth time in five years that Weber Shandwick has been featured in the Ad Age A-List, which celebrates industry leaders for their bold creativity, lucrative business strategy and continual transformation. Ad Age recognised the firm for its growing roster of clients and standout creative campaigns.
“It’s incredibly affirming to receive this kind of recognition,” said Ali Grayeli, Executive Creative Director for Weber Shandwick Asia Pacific. “Over the past year, our teams have worked very hard to match our clients’ needs with work that is more creative, more contemporary and more effective than the norm. It’s a joy to see the efforts of all of our great people, clients and collaborators recognised in such a way.”
It’s one of several industry honors earned by Weber Shandwick in the past year, including being named The Holmes Report’s 2017 Global Agency of the Year, PRWeek’s 2017 Global Agency of the Year, being ranked first on The Holmes Report’s Global Creative Index and being recognised as Asia Pacific Agency of the Year on five separate occasions in 2017.
“As always, my only response can be one of gratitude,” said Baxter Jolly, CEO of Weber Shandwick Asia Pacific. “To Ad Age, for their recognition; to our clients, for their commitment and support in pursuing new ideas – and to our people, for their tireless efforts in going beyond expectations to consistently deliver unique, powerful work throughout the Asia Pacific region and the world. This is their accomplishment.”
