We’ve received the accolade for three of the past five years, and that’s a wonderful place to be as we head into 2023.” says Troy Ruhanen, CEO, TBWA\Worldwide.
Ruhanen added “Without our clients’ trust and continued partnership none of this is possible. Our mantra remains “Always in Beta”. This mentality has seen us continue to maximize our potential. We’ve expanded our experience design and immersive technology capabilities with the acquisition of innovation agency dotdotdash, and our continued investment in NEXT has seen us disrupt the future of brand experiences. Alongside the exceptional creative product produced by our global teams - 2022 was another incredible year. And we haven’t even begun to fully realize our potential.”
