FIG, the High Peak (Glossop)-based marketing agency has won a prestigious north of England marketing award for the second year running.

The full-service agency, which provides an integrated range of in-house creative, digital and PR services, has been awarded the Chartered Institute of Marketing Northern Awards agency prize.

The judges acknowledged FIG’s, “ongoing and sustained commitment to delivering best practice, and creative and innovative approach to marketing for its clients,” and also its growth.

FIG, who in 2016 won the CIM’s large agency award, this year beat off stiff competition from a selection of other agencies.

Now in their fourth year, the CIM awards celebrate the insight, creativity and success of the northern marketing industry, the outstanding campaigns and the talent from across the region.

Charlie Nettle, chair of CIM North East who judged this category, said: “With comments from customers testifying to FIG being ‘a crucial part of their team that they trust implicitly’, this is undoubtedly a business that has a great story to tell, but I also believe it’s got the makings of a business that can achieve even greater things in the future.”

Said FIG’s managing director, Helen Duncan, who attended the November 9th awards ceremony in Manchester – hosted by broadcaster Andy Crane – with members of her team:  “We are delighted to have won the agency prize for the second year in a row. The CIM is our industry benchmark and this is a great accolade for the team.

“We are fortunate enough to work in partnership with some outstanding clients, who allow us so many opportunities to deliver outstanding results for them.”

Ranked among Prolific North’s 2017 Top 50 PR agencies, FIG works with companies and public sector organisations across the North West and East Midlands, with particular expertise in the manufacturing, food, education, traffic, leisure and charity sectors.

This year, the agency has won a number of new retained Marketing Partners, including  Stockport’s Clingfoil, the North West’s largest independent distributor of protective packaging materials and machinery, and Macclesfield-based Fastrak retail solutions.
