We can now reveal the official countdown of the Top 50 Integrated Agencies in the North of England. Mustard and Prolific North have combined to produce a definitive agency ranking based around company size, financials and growth.

This information has been derived from a combination of sources (most notably Fame – https://fame.bvdinfo.com) and also from information volunteered by the agencies themselves, from press releases and from information published on their own websites.

Key metrics included Balance Sheet Value / Shareholder Funds, 2012 turnover, 2011-2012 T/O growth and headcount (Northern locations only).

Thank you to all of those agencies that have been proactive and quick to respond in providing company information. Even if your company has not made the Top50 this year, we wish you a very prosperous year ahead and perhaps a new entry in the rankings when the exercise is repeated in 2014.

For more information, please contact Jo Iaconianni on +44(0)161 235 5270.
