2017 Agency League released

The CMA Agency League has been revised for 2017, with no change in the top three – MRA, CIB, and Ridgemount holding their positions, but with Harris moving up to fourth.

The league, which is compiled by taking a rolling four year window of CMA results, and awarding five points for a win, three for a High Commendation, and one for a place on a shortlist, is now increasingly used as an indicator for tender lists, which gives it a greater significance.

The top 20 (below) had a couple of new entrants – Luminescence, this year’s double winners with their client Clear Architects, and Built for Marketing who have bubbled under for a few years, and have now burst in to the top 20 courtesy of their win in Strategy and Marketing Planning with Guthrie Douglas.

Harris climb one place to fourth, Refresh climb one to fifth, while gyro climb five places to eighth.
