Godwin named to exclusive “Top Shop” list by AdWeek
JACKSON, Miss.—The ad industry trade magazine AdWeekhas declared GodwinGroup a top shop in the nation. This week, AdWeek released its list of top agencies in each of the 50 United States. On the list, GodwinGroup is featured as the leading firm based in the state of Mississippi.
Only one agency in each state was selected for what AdWeek 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 Weiden + 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 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 to be featured in the infographic-style map included agency head count, notable clients, legacy and reputation. Importantly, the agencies also had to be founded in their state to qualify for the coveted “top shop” designation.
GodwinGroup was founded in Mississippi in 1937. For more than 75 years, the firm has been known for its high-impact branding, marketing and advertising for clients in Mississippi and beyond. Today, GodwinGroup is proud to work with businesses, utilities and state agencies in all parts of the United States.
Earlier this year, Godwin was also named by the Mississippi Business Journal as one of its “Best Places to Work in Mississippi.”
