Leo Burnett India has been chosen as the Global Agency of the Year from 94 offices in 86 countries across the Leo Burnett network.
Announcing this award on Thursday evening at Chicago, Mark Tutsell, chief creative officer, Leo Burnett Worldwide, said, “Leo Burnett India stepped onto the world’s stage in 2008, leaving Cannes with more Lions than any other office in our network. Tonight, they cleaned up again, winning three impressive awards: the Gold Pencil, the Bright Star and the coveted Global Agency of the Year Award. Congratulations, India!”
India was chosen as the global agency out of the network’s five ‘Bright stars’: Argentina, Brazil, Italy, Japan and India. The consideration for being rated as a Bright Star requires each market to have met its financial and business goals and to have delivered creative breakthroughs.
Leo Burnett India also won the much coveted Gold Pencil for outstanding achievement in creativity across traditional and non-traditional media for Luxor Highlighters, the first time that the India office has won this creative accolade.
Arvind Sharma, chairman India, Sub-continent added, “Being judged the best office in the No. 2 network in the world is an achievement we’re very proud of. What is more heartening is that these awards come close on the heels of the Leo Intel Award for planning excellence announced a week ago. Together these prove our mettle across Creative, Planning and Business results.”
