The Drum has named DEPT® as a Top 10 Independent Agency in its annual review of the UK agency sector.  The youngest agency in the Top 10, DEPT® has propelled itself into the top ranks in just three years.

Based on key performance metrics including turnover growth, revenue per head and gross profit, the Top 100 list celebrates the best-run agencies in the UK. DEPT® is not only the youngest agency in the Top 10, but is also the only one headquartered in the North West of England.

Jasper van de Luijtgaarden, Managing Director at DEPT® in the UK, said, “Securing a Top 10 place in The Drum’s report and leaping 12 places to 40th in Econsultancy’s Top 100, demonstrates DEPT®’s leading status in the industry. Our ethos of being ‘big enough to cope, but small enough to care’ has really resonated with our clients and is helping us to differentiate in a competitive landscape. We’re laser-focused on continuing our growth and look forward to evolving our service offering in 2020 to help accelerate our clients’ digital reality.”

It’s been a busy and successful year for DEPT®’s UK team. Earlier this year, experience design agency e3creative joined DEPT®, the agency opened its new UK flagship office in the historic Bridgewater House, Manchester, and it launched a Commerce division. The team has strengthened its partnerships with brands including Triumph Motorcycles, Playstation and O2, while welcoming new clients including British Gymnastics, Destinology and Lyst.
