JACKSON, Miss. (Sept. 17, 2013)—Leading ad industry trade magazine AdWeek named GodwinGroup this week to its list of the top agency in each of the 50 states in the United States. Only one agency in each state was selected for what they called, “The one that, more often than not, just gets it right.”
“It’s certainly an honor just to be named on a list with names like Fallon, The Martin Agency, Crispin Porter + Bogusky, BBDO and Wieden + Kennedy,” said Philip Shirley, chairman and CEO of GodwinGroup.
“Those firms set the bar high for our industry and it’s gratifying to work with prestigious clients who partner with us to produce work that gets this kind of recognition.”
AdWeek published the list Sept. 16, 2013, as a map titled “The United States of Agencies–Our picks for the top shop in each state.” The criteria included head count, notable clients, legacy and reputation. The agencies also had to be founded in their state.
Earlier this year, Godwin was also named by the Mississippi Business Journal as one of its “Best Places to Work in Mississippi.”
