“To receive the title of the world’s fastest growing agency for two consecutive years speaks volumes for not just our work that delivers transformative experiences for our clients, but also the passion of our teams across the world.” said Mike Nakamura, Global President, dentsu X. “This recognition sets the foundation for the ambitious future we have ahead of us and shows that our focus on experience beyond exposure is resonating with clients who are looking for an agency that not just delivers results, but also differentiation”.

“Clients are increasingly recognising that a simple exposure isn’t enough to make a difference.  Media can do so much more than expose; it can engage, entertain and ultimately add value.” added Sanjay Nazerali, newly appointed Global MD, dentsu X. “We’re delighted that many of those clients have put their faith in us.”

In reviewing growth over the last twenty years, RECMA noted that Dentsu Media grew at 4.3x, expanded two new media brands, and now has a staff share of 15.5% of the industry.
