Edinburgh marketing communications company, Multiply, notched up a treble triumph at the inaugural Marketing Industry Network Awards in Manchester last night.
The awards recognise the best UK media, marketing and communications agencies,
Multiply picked up the Integrated Agency of the Year title, followed that up by winning the Scottish Team of the Year and added icing to the cake by picking up the Grand Prix title as the best overall agency.
Multiply employs 40 staff at its base in Edinburgh’s Alva Street and is Scotland’s largest independently owned marketing comms agency.
It works for a variety of blue-chip brands, including Huggies, Kleenex, Highland Spring, Standard Life, Deuchars and Maxxium.
In the Integrated Agency category Multiply pipped Cheshire-based big guns IAS, Leicester’s Big Communications and BJL in Manchester and took the Scottish Team title ahead of bigmouthmedia.
Multiply director, Mark Fowlestone, said: “We were up against the cream of the UK marketing industry and are delighted the hard work put in by all our staff in the last year has been recognised at the highest level.
“Winning the Integrated Agency title is a tremendous boost not just for Multiply but for the Scottish marketing industry as it underlines the fact Scottish companies don’t have to look down south for their marketing requirements but have an abundance of talent on their doorstep.
“Two awards is a great achievement in anyone’s book but also receiving the Grand Prix from the judging panel put the seal on the night and made the long train journey through monster flooding especially worthwhile.”
In the past year Multiply has worked or a range of diverse campaigns including an e-learning programme for Standard Life, a Highland Spring consumer competition featuring Andy Murray, promotional materials for Stolichnaya vodka, and the relaunch of Huggies Club, one of the largest parenting websites in Europe.
