Belfast-based creative ad agency Genesis has won Marketing Agency of the Year (including Digital) at this year’s Chartered Institute of Marketing (CIM) Ireland Marketing Excellence Awards held in Belfast.
The CIM Ireland Marketing Excellence Awards celebrate, recognise and reward proven marketing achievements across various industry sectors in Ireland and acknowledge the contribution made by both individuals and teams.
On the night, Genesis also picked up the CIM Marketing with Impact Public Sector Award for the Invest Northern Ireland Go for it campaign, and was shortlisted for the HSENI Farm Safety campaign, and the Henderson ‘Passion about Local’ campaign for SPAR.
Stephen Bogan, Managing Director of Genesis, commented, ‘We’re delighted to receive these awards in recognition of the hard work and commitment of the team, and the vision of our clients. As an agency, we aspire to international class and receiving these awards lets us know that we are well on our way there.
‘At Genesis we’ve invested for over 22 years to excel in strategy, concept origination, project management, digital and production, which is why we’ve won 30 major awards in the past three years alone, most recently NI Media Agency of the Year in Dublin. And we’re the only Northern Irish agency to have won a prestigious Drum Marketing Award. It’s a huge boost for our clients – the awards we’ve picked up this year confirm that they’re working with the very best in Northern Ireland.’
