Equator has been named as the number one independent marketing agency in Scotland and number 16 in the UK in The Drum Independent Agencies Census 2014.

The research into 276 of the UK’s independent agencies looked at financial performance, client and peer reviews when compiling the league table.

The results of the financial poll suggest that independence is no obstacle to success. 82 per cent of the agencies showed positive growth over the most recent financial year, with the combined growth in turnover reaching an impressive £108m.

John McLeish, managing director of Equator, said: “We are very pleased to have our place as Scotland’s number one and top 20 UK marketing agency confirmed by this research.

“It’s encouraging to see how the independent agency landscape is thriving.

“While Equator is growing and maturing as a business, our independent status means we can continue to be agile, innovative and entrepreneurial, developing rewarding strategic partnerships with our clients.”
