Fixation Named Top Agency by BtoB

Bethesda, MD—The champagne is flowing at Fixation Marketing as the company celebrates being named a 2009 Top Agency by BtoB magazine. The announcement was made in the March 8 issue. A complete list of recognized agencies is available for download on the BtoB website.

To be considered a 2009 Top Agency, Fixation submitted a comprehensive survey covering the size and scope of the business, year-to-year revenue generation, client and workforce retention and much more.

As BtoB Senior Reporter, Kate Maddox, reports in Top Agency -Special Report, “b-to-b agencies in 2009 faced their most challenging year in decades as they struggled through a recession and worked with clients that were cutting budgets and demanding improved ROI on their marketing programs. While most advertisers cut their marketing budgets last year, they looked to their agency partners to provide not only effective marketing communications programs but higher-level strategic services. The agencies that rose to the top worked with their clients to hone in on business objectives and craft marketing efforts to help them succeed in difficult times.”

“Fixation is honored to be recognized by this highly respected magazine, on the same list as industry giants BBDO and Ogilvy & Mather NA,” said President and CEO Jean Whiddon. “Let me give a big thanks to our clients who allow us to provide the smart strategy, design and interactive marketing solutions that help them succeed and help us stay on top of our game.”
