Fast Company Names BBDO To Its List Of Most Innovative Companies In The World For The Second Year In A Row

NEW YORK, Feb. 20, 2019 /PRNewswire/ -- Today, Fast Company released its prestigious list of the World's Most Innovative Companies for 2019, and for the second year in a row BBDO was named one of the most innovative companies in advertising. The annual ranking honors the businesses making the most profound impact on both industry and culture, showcasing a variety of ways to thrive in today's volatile world. This year, Fast Company's editors and writers sought out groundbreaking businesses across 35 industries and every region.

In naming BBDO, Fast Company said BBDO "has over the years cemented its reputation for balancing traditional big-brand advertising with innovative, boundary-pushing creative."  That was especially true in 2018, where "BBDO created work that was truly important, sparking conversations about race and cyberbullying."

Added BBDO Worldwide's Chief Creative Officer, David Lubars, "What is especially gratifying about being named to Fast Company's World's Most Innovative Companies list for the second year in a row is that it's determined by people outside of the advertising industry. So the work you're doing has to be clearly recognizable as innovative and relevant in today's ever-changing communications environment."

The World's Most Innovative Companies is Fast Company's signature franchise and one of its most highly anticipated editorial efforts of the year. It provides both a snapshot and a road map for the future of innovation across the most dynamic sectors of the economy.

"Established players are showing the same kind of nimbleness that we've generally associated with startups," said Fast Company deputy editor David Lidsky, who oversaw the issue with senior editor Amy Farley.

Being named to Fast Company's World's Most Innovative Companies list for the second year in a row comes on the heels of BBDO being ranked the most awarded agency network across all marketing communications in The Drum's Big WonReport earlier this month – also for the second year in a row.
