Advertising Age has ranked independent specialist Acxiom Corporation as the number one agency in the US for the third year in a row.
Nasdaq-quoted Acxiom also ranked number one in Direct and CRM Agencies in the US, number two in World Top CRM/Direct Marketing Agencies and number nine in the World’s Top 50 Agency Companies.
“The traditional definition of an agency is evolving, with brands expecting partners to share their values of accountability and focus on driving shareholder value,” said Acxiom CMO Tim Suther. “In this rapidly changing environment, Ad Age’s ranking validates our focus and the sentiment of our clients.”
In 2008 and 2009 Acxiom was the first number one in Ad Age’s ranking that was not a traditional full-service shop or a conventional advertising agency. Ad Age’s rankings are based on revenues.
Acxiom is headquartered in Little Rock, Arkansas and has other offices in Europe, Asia-Pacific, the Middle East and South America.
