Essence is Adweek’s Breakthrough Media Agency of the Year

For over three decades, Adweek’s editors have honored the most iconic agencies with their annual Agency of the Year list. After an incredible 2018, Essence has been named the Breakthrough Media Agency of the Year.

As Adweek reporter Lindsay Rittenhouse said, "It takes a special kind of agency, one year after its founding, to win business for a mega tech company like Google and retain that partnership for 13 years. It takes that same kind of agency to then branch out from its largest and longest-standing client—while still maintaining a strong alliance as its current global digital agency of record—double in size and win 23 additional clients, including BP, British Telecom, men’s skin-care brand Bulldog, Coty, Eurosport, Flipkart, Peloton and T-Mobile, in just one year."
