It was a ‘good night out’ for FCB Africa and its agencies at the Financial Mail AdFocus Awards held in November 23.
Not only did FCB Joburg take home the Large Advertising Agency of the Year award and Hellocomputer the Digital Agency of the Year trophy, FCB Africa CEO and Chief Creative Officer, Brett Morris, was named Agency Leader of the Year.
“It certainly was a night to remember,” said Morris. “I’m exceptionally proud of FCB Joburg and Hellocomputer. Both agencies and their teams worked very hard this year on their business and creative performance, and achieved much that benefited their clients’ and their clients’ brands. Both certainly deserved the accolade of agency of the year.
“The group’s performance over the past 12 months certainly contributed to the fact that I was honoured last night with the Agency Leader of the Year award.
“In my opinion, this award is as much as team award as it is an individual one, and so I thank everyone at FCB in Johannesburg and Cape Town, Hellocomputer and 1886 who got behind me this year and made our business soar.”
