Cohn & Wolfe Named 2017 EMEA Creative Consultancy of the Year by The Holmes Report


London – May 26, 2017 – Cohn & Wolfe, a global communications agency, was named 2017 EMEA Creative Consultancy of the Year by The Holmes Report at the 2017 EMEA SABRE Awards. During the ceremony, the agency was also awarded Global Campaign of the Year for the Swedish Tourist Association’s “The Swedish Number” – a campaign collaboration with INGO and Grey PR.

Coming out of their third consecutive year of double-digit growth, Cohn & Wolfe was heralded by The Holmes Report for its immersive brand experiences, strong digital team and stand-out client campaigns. Further explaining why Cohn & Wolfe is this year’s top creative agency, The Holmes Report said:

The past couple of years have seen Cohn & Wolfe bring its “Dig Deeper Imagine More” mantra to life in ways that emphasize just how different the firm is today compared to five years ago, and compared to most of its peers. The most interesting development is an effort to go beyond “integration” to use the full range of paid, earned, shared and owned channels in order to create an “immersive brand experience.” That means using new tools like virtual reality to add a new element to experiential marketing. The digital team in EMEA has expanded from 23 to 56 over the past two years, with capabilities in social analytics, community management, influencer marketing, film production, paid media, and mobile.

“It’s an honor to be recognized as EMEA Creative Consultancy of the Year,” says Scott Wilson, Managing Director, EMEA and Chief Executive Officer, UK, Cohn & Wolfe. “Our offices throughout the region continue to emulate the Cohn & Wolfe guiding principle of ‘imagining more’ – delivering extraordinary, award-winning creative work, while also bringing our integrated offerings to life in truly unique ways. This is a testament to the strength of the region and the wonderful clients that work side-by-side with our teams.”
 
The Holmes Report’s EMEA PR Consultancies of the Year are chosen following an exhaustive research process involving more than 200 submissions and face-to-face meetings with the best PR firms across Europe, the Middle East and Africa.
