We’re excited to share with you why FIRST is the Global Agency of the Year. This past year has been nothing shy of incredible for FIRST... and some would even say it’s ‘Global Agency of the Year’ incredible. We persisted in driving transformational change across our agency, from the breadth of our capabilities, to the size and expertise of our teams, to the scale and diversity of our client base. Our momentum has continued, not only by meeting and beating our financial plan, but with the new talent we’ve invested in, the media coverage we’ve received, our contribution to the industry and thought leadership, and our innovations.
The attached submission provides an overview and insight into why FIRST is the Global Agency of the Year, from our innovative experiences, financial performance, clients, people & culture and our future strategy, we're excited to share with you what was an incredible and successful 2018, and what has been of 2019.
