The Drum Independent Agencies Census 2015 - Financial Rankings

The Drum’s Independent Agencies Census, a piece of research conducted in partnership with Recommended Agency Register (RAR) and sponsored by Graph, outlines the performance of independent agencies, celebrating their successes to highlight their role in the marketplace.

Using The Drum’s enhanced census methodology, the census rankings are then determined by each agency’s financial performance, peer recognition and client satisfaction.

Agencies are ranked against those of a similar staff size in order to provide valuable comparisons. Here, you can find a snapshot of the census results, as we publish the results of the financial poll, grouped by staff size, with a separate ranking for media agencies.

The top players in the financial tables are those to have performed well across six criteria, achieving the highest average rank. Rather than simply ranking agencies based on turnover size, the census ranks agencies across turnover, turnover growth, turnover percentage growth, turnover per head, gross profit and gross profit growth.

To view all tables, you can purchase a copy of the full report here.
