Doubling its revenue and building its clients and service offering over the last two years has earned Rare Creative Group a prestigious award at the recent Sheffield Business Awards.
Organised by the Sheffield Chamber of Commerce and The Star newspaper, Rare was awarded the Sheffield Enterprise Agency Excellence in Professional Services award on the night and the evening was a double celebration for Rare, currently ranked 26 in the RAR Top Agencies Outside of London, with client Polypipe Building Products also winning the Marketing Team of the Year and Best Use of Press and Public Relations at the 2013 Construction Marketing Awards, held in London the same day.
To win the award, Rare demonstrated excellence in business management, under-pinned by strong financial performance. In the past two years Rare has more than doubled revenues, which is now £2.3m, achieving growth by an expansion of its client base and service portfolio, and demonstrated a track record of outstanding results and value against client objectives.
This is the second Sheffield Business Award for Rare who won the Digital Industries, Innovation & Technology Award at last year’s event.
Rare’s Managing Director Steve Bellingham said of the recent win: “To win a second Sheffield Business Award pays tribute to the continued hard work of our team and it is great this has been recognised by the local business community. 2013 has been another successful year for the company and I am delighted that we will be starting the New Year on such a positive note”.
Rare has had a number of other award successes this year including a commendation at the 2013 MiAwards in the Best B2B Marketing Strategy or Campaign category for their work with Polypipe Plumbing and Heating. They have also recently been included as one of just two Sheffield agencies in the Prolific North Top 50 Integrated Agencies 2013.
