W Communications

Our focus on people, partners and empowerment resulted in our best financial performance to date, while retaining 84% of our staff.

We tripled the creative team with landmark hires including Creative Jack Davy, alongside Art Director Jack Beckett, and Creative Producer Emma Thomas.

Driving data and insight, we invested in top Strategy Director, Vijaya Varilly transforming our work.

New business expansion was spearheaded by former Ogilvy New Business Director Anna Burns, securing £1.5m worth of new business, a 17% YOY increase, including clients such as Disney, Stella Artois, Universal Music, Very.co.uk and Whiskey portfolio William Grant & Sons.

We established our ‘Little London’ offer in New York. Led by existing Director Gemma McAloon, who has won 10 new clients in four months, including British Airways, TradingView, AllBright, East London Liquor Company, and BOAT International.

In the UK, we expanded acquiring an Edinburgh-based drinks specialist agency Steely Fox to launch W Scotland.

The result? 11 years of consecutive growth, and delivered 20% year on year revenue growth, with profits up 31%.

By partnering with our clients through this challenging environment, we increased the average value of our clients by 23%, doubling the number of £1m+ and £500k+ clients, while continuing a healthy client portfolio.

Despite incredible adversity, what we’re most proud of is that our commitment to our people, partners and to empowerment has also turned out to be our best business performance year on record.
