On the night agency founder Gellan Watt was also named the UK’s Marketing Industry Managing Director of the Year 2012.

Gellan said: “Well, you turn up to every award ceremony hoping to pick up one of the awards you’re short-listed for. To be named in the top two best Integrated and Advertising Agency’s of the Year 2012 is immense. And to be named the best agency in the South West is incredible. Especially considering we’ve won that award every single year since the Marketing Industry Awards started.

“It’s a superb achievement for the team. We’ve grown a HUGE amount in the last 12 months, and we’re doing our best work ever. 2013 looks like a very bright year for us.”

He added: “As for me picking up MD of the Year – all I can say is wow. I guess my mother must have been the judge. Seriously, it’s an amazing achievement. This industry is tough. Unforgiving. Hard work. But wonderful. I work with amazing people, that can do amazing things. To be recognised in this way is really very moving.”
