Six Enterprise IG clients named number one

Six of Enterprise IG's clients scooped top honours in this year's Top Brands survey, coming in as category leaders of South Africa's favourite brands poll. As South Africa's top brand consultancy, Enterprise IG is proud to have partnered with these number one brands, tallied by the Sunday Times Markinor Top Brands survey.
Scoring the winning position in their respective categories this year are Absa, KFC, Toyota, Old Mutual, Standard Bank and Mercedes-Benz.

Says CEO Anthony Swart, “Enterprise IG focuses on brand-led business growth and so we're particularly pleased to see this evidenced by our clients' consistent performance, not just in the short term but over a number of years.” He adds, “All of these clients have successfully retained their number one position, year on year, while a further 16 brands that we've worked with rank within the top three of their respective industry categories.”

The Sunday Times Markinor Top Brands survey, which started in 1992, is considered by many to be the leading study in the country when assessing an organisation's brand strength and competitiveness. The results are based on a composite metric called the Brand Relationship Score which is an assemblage of three factors: spontaneous awareness, level of trust and confidence, and commitment.

“We're very proud of our clients' brand successes, which are a combination of hard work, commitment and performance, underpinned by solid brand strategy,” says Swart.

A multidisciplinary brand consultancy, Enterprise IG offers a holistic approach to brand building through the specialist services of Strategy, Graphic Design, Industrial Design, Packaging, Architecture, Retail Interior Design and Brand Engagement – all under one roof.
