RANKING BRITAIN: Tops of the Shops

How do British clients rate British ad agencies? A recent issue of London -based Marketing Week reports results of that magazine’s annual survey of client marketing executives, and it puts J. Walter Thompson atop the overall rankings for the second year in a row. Rounding out the top 10 are: 2. Saatchi & Saatchi. 3. BMP DDB Needham. 4. Bartle Bogle Hegarty. 5. Ogilvy & Mather. 6. McCann-Erickson. 7. Abbott Mead Vickers/BBDO. 8. BSB Dorland and WCRS (tie). 10. Zenith. Respondents rated the agencies on such criteria as creativity, value for the money and media-buying acumen. Asked to compose an ‘ideal shortlist’ for an agency review, the respondents again put JWT on top, followed by Bartle Bogle Hegarty and BMP DDB Needham.
