“Being named Ad Age‘s Network of the Year is a huge honor that speaks to the success of all of our agencies and to the quality of our creative product around the world,” says Troy Ruhanen, CEO, TBWA\Worldwide. “To be recognized as Network of the Year, in a new category in the Ad Age A-List, is particularly rewarding, because it sets the standard and demonstrates the power of the collective and our 10,000+ creative minds who make all of this possible.”

Ruhanen added, “We’re grateful to our clients who entrust us with their brands and partner with us to disrupt again and again.”

“The agencies featured in the Ad Age A-List package showed resilience, the ability to challenge conventions and worked with clients to rethink fundamentals with business transformation strategies,” said Judann Pollack, executive editor of Ad Age. “Above all they proved the market-moving value of the big creative idea. TBWA embodied all of these qualities at global scale, which is why we selected them as our first Network of the Year.”
