Cardiff agency secures another national win

Orchard Media and Events are once again celebrating another successful win, ranking #14 in The Drum’s ‘Top 100 Agencies 2019’. Orchard’s position in the Top 100 puts them as Wales’ leading agency according to the results and breaks a new record, with Orchard officially claiming their highest ever ranking.

Global media marketers, The Drum, is widely renowned in the media and marketing industry as one of the most prestigious platforms to showcase creative businesses. To be recognised by The Drum is an overwhelming achievement, and Cardiff-based Orchard managed to secure a high place in the final scorings.

Coming in at Number 14 out of a possible 100, The Drum Top 100 celebrates the best-run independent agencies across the UK. Powered by The Drum’s Independent Agencies Census, it’s the most comprehensive study of its kind into the performance of UK marcomms firms.

So, how do you earn your place in the Top 100?

Agencies earn their place based on their performance across six financial metrics, which include turnover, turnover growth, turnover percentage growth, turnover per head, gross profit and gross profit growth – and two years’ worth of financial data is analysed to determine their ranking.

Speaking on the win, Orchard’s Director, Jim Carpenter, commented;

“We’ve made company history, with this representing our highest ranking to date in the Top 100, and it marks a fantastic finish to the year. Next year we’ll be celebrating our 10th anniversary as Orchard, and this accolade is a welcome addition to our long list of achievements. We’ve created a thriving business with an extremely talented team, continuously producing great things and it’s extremely gratifying to be recognised in such a way.”
