Gloo continues to measure up

Last week, Gloo was recognised as South Africa's best-performing digital agency at this year's Assegai Awards. Winning eight statues on the night, the agency continues to prove itself as a strategically led creative agency that delivers business results for its clients.
Gloo also picked up five silver awards at the recent Bookmarks Awards, which like the Assegais, give the South African digital industry an opportunity to showcase its ability to deliver effective work.

Sean Donnelly, Gloo Group MD comments, "With the economic global downturn, it's key for agencies like ourselves to explore new ways to deliver return on investment, both in delivering results from the work we do, as well as in the way we create remuneration models with our clients. So, we're very proud to continue our success at these awards."

The Bookmarks has celebrated digital effectiveness since 2008 and Gloo has consistently performed at the top of the industry at these awards. From winning the first gold to be awarded by any agency in 2008, to winning 'best in show' in 2009, through to 'best performing agency in 2012'. Gloo has also consistently shone at the Assegais as a top agency for the last four years running.

Pete Case continues, "Our focus, as an agency that helps brands engage the digitally enabled consumer, is to find that perfect space where creativity collides with ROI. It's a hard space to achieve consistently, as the digital landscape is changing very quickly. But we're proud to have achieved such wide recognition across the categories for our work this year. And we'll be finding many more ways to do so in 2014. Well done to all of our teams and clients involved in this work."
