WCG Named Digital Agency of the Year

SAN FRANCISCO, CA--(Marketwire - May 23, 2011) - WCG today announced it was named Digital Agency of the Year by TheHolmes Report.

"While a full-blooded commitment to digital and social media was a no-brainer for firms in the technology and consumer space, it was not necessarily an obvious priority for an agency with its roots in the healthcare space, since pharmaceutical companies have been hesitant to embrace new channels for fear of running afoul of regulators," according to the Report, which announced WCG as the Digital Agency of the Year on May 10.

The Report added, "Nevertheless, WCG has established itself as a leader in the digital space, with a philosophical approach focused on engagement; the creation of a WCG Interactive Services division that offers a wide range of capabilities from search engine optimization to social media to web development to digital analytics; and most notable with some high-profile hires. The commitment to digital has helped WCG continue its astounding growth of recent years, with fee income up by close to 40 percent to around $37 million."

Since entering the digital agency landscape less than two years ago, WCG has grown its digital and interactive team to more than 50 professionals.

"This award is symbolic for us as a digital agency because it recognizes our commitment to reinvent marketing and communications for today's companies," said Bob Pearson, chief technology and media officer. "For a digital agency, innovation is paramount so our continual focus on what is around the corner translates to powerful new models that provide market advantages for our clients."
