Much of this was attributed to organic growth, with the agency now supporting its top 20 clients in eight or more geographies.

The agency has an average client retention rate of nine years. Of the top 50 clients, 43 have used the agency for more than five years - six, including Roche and Dow Chemical Company, for 30 or more years.

The agency also won new clients My Space, Fruit of the Loom and Michelin.

The past year has seen a change in the agency's senior management structure. In June, Rob Flaherty became the seventh CEO in the agency's 90-year history, as previous CEO Ray Kotcher assumed the position of chairman. The transition was handled smoothly.

The agency has also won a series of awards.

In 2011, it was named International Consultancy of the year at the PRWeek UK Awards, and won its third successive Campaign of the Year Award at the PRWeek US Awards.

This year, it was named Agency of the Year at the 2012 PRWeek US Awards.
