Group M


Founded in 2003, GroupM is the largest media investment company in the world, representing 30% of all media billings worldwide; 1 in 3 ads are placed by our agencies: Mindshare, MediaCom, Wavemaker, Essence, and m/SIX.  As populations and consumers transform around the world, we make advertising work better through cultural and data-based insights and sound media strategies. Through our agencies, we leverage all the benefits of access and scale to innovate, differentiate and generate sustained value for our clients wherever they do business.

We do this by creating, integrating and scaling technology-enabled services with premium partners to help our clients’ businesses grow. That means we take typical “media agency” capabilities and put them through a filter that makes our work more purposeful, intentional, transparent, and enjoyable—for clients and consumers.

“As advertising is but one component of a holistic marketing approach, we see the Marketing Achievement Awards as an opportunity to share, discuss and learn within the forum of great marketers and brand builders.”
