Integrated communications agency McCann Birmingham is celebrating after a record year of new business wins and continued growth, and is looking to expand further with the development of its Luton operation in 2014.
The award-winning agency has reported an impressive 31 new client wins in 2013 through its Birmingham and Bristol offices, and thanks to this on-going success, the agency has announced the appointment of Rob Mustoe as Managing Director of the Luton office.
Amongst McCann’s new business wins are well-known brands such as Pukka Pies, The Prince’s Trust, Vonage, PFE Medical, Hardy’s Wine, Severn Trent, AXA and James Villas to name just a few.
Dean Lovett, Chief Executive of McCann Birmingham commented: “We have proven that even during challenging economic times, outstanding creativity and dedication to results still wins the day. At McCann we pride ourselves in delivering the very best solutions for our clients which brings together industry-leading talent across the full spectrum of disciplines.
“The appointment of Rob Mustoe as MD of our growing Luton office further strengthens our automotive expertise and national presence.”
Rob Mustoe joins McCann from London-based integrated agency Indicia where he was Digital Director on the Board. Indicia acquired Rob’s previous agency, Evolving, in 2012 where he was Managing Director, and now boasts clients including Nissan Europe, Heineken, Very.co.uk and ITV.
Rob commented: “McCann is an iconic agency which has become synonymous with award winning creativity and results-focused programmes. I am really looking forward to working with some of the best talent in the business and driving McCann Central forward in 2014.”
McCann Birmingham recently celebrated after winning an impressive 14 trophies at the Cream Awards, including both the Grand Prix and Chairman’s Award, alongside eight trophies at the CIPR Pride Awards, including Gold for Social Media.
As 2014 rapidly approaches the team at McCann continue to focus on delivering award-winning results for their long-term clients, including Sunseeker International, Vauxhall cars, Triumph Motorcycles, Stanley Black & Decker tools and Cott Beverages.
McCann Birmingham has also recently been awarded a second consecutive ‘Gold’ standard from Investors in People, recognising the high standard of investment McCann provides for its teams across all locations.
