SA's Volcano wins Ad Age International Agency Award

South Africa-based full-service advertising agency, Volcano, has been awarded Silver in the Ad Age Small Agency of the Year Awards (International category), held last week in Austin, Texas - the first African agency to take home this prestigious award. The Volcano Group saw a substantial increase of 18.4% in its revenue and has acquired a considerable number of new accounts over the past year.

“We are ecstatic to have won this award and this will further motivate us to continue to create and design impactful ideas for our clients that will start earlier and live longer,” says Paul Jackson, Grey Africa’s managing director.

"We were pretty blown away by the incredible talent and powerful ideas coming out of the small agency community," said Abbey Klaassen, associate publisher - editorial and audience, Ad Age. "Their ambition and abilities make these kinds of firms highly attractive to clients seeking creative and agile partners as well as to potential acquirers. Perhaps it's not surprising then, that between the time they entered to the time the winners were announced, two of our international agency honourees where snapped up by larger firms."
