The Marketing Pod celebrates hat trick of national award accolades

28th October 2016

The Marketing Pod is celebrating after being announced as finalists in three categories of a prestigious national marketing awards ceremony. The firm, established just three years ago, has been nominated for Marketing Business of the Year – South, Integrated Agency of the Year, and B2B Marketing Agency of the Year.

The Drum Network Awards recognise the best marketing agencies across the country for their creativity, growth and results, showcasing the best in the business. While the Marketing Business of the Year award acknowledges the most reputable agency in southern England, the Integrated Agency award celebrates the best agencies that offer a wide range of marketing services and the B2B award is for agencies who have delivered exceptional business to business campaigns.

The Marketing Pod has experienced exponential growth since its founders Jenny Hughes and Jodie Williams left their senior roles in corporate firms and set up the agency from a kitchen table in Dorridge. With a team of nine and a large office at Umberslade Business Park in Hockley Heath, The Marketing Pod now boasts major firms such as National Grid and DONG Energy as clients and has grown its turnover fivefold since 2013.

Co-founder and director Jenny Hughes said: “We are delighted to have been nominated for such prestigious awards. To be recognised as one of the top marketing agencies in the country just three years after setting up The Marketing Pod is unbelievable: it’s testament to the hard work of all our team and the results we deliver for our clients.”

Richard Draycott, MD at the Drum Network, also congratulated The Marketing Pod on the nominations: “The Drum Network Awards is now in its eighth year and aims to recognise and reward not only the best run independent marketing services agencies in the UK, but also the most creative and strategic too. To have three nominations from our judges, who were tough this year, is a fantastic achievement in itself and shows that The Marketing Pod is a great business and delivers excellent services to its clients.”

The award ceremony takes place on 24 November in Mayfair, London.
