VML Australia Celebrates Third Birthday With Global Recognition

VML Australia celebrates its third anniversary this week as the Warc 100 rankings are released, highlighting VML Australia as the number one Digital Agency in the Asia-Pacific region and number seven in the world.

The Warc 100 is a ranking of the world’s best marketing campaigns and companies, based on their performance in creative and effectiveness shows.

Since its launch in 2012, VML Australia has become one of the fastest-growing agencies in the region with multiple key client wins, innovative work and award show recognition for leading global and local brands.

In the past year, VML Australia has featured heavily at award shows both locally and globally, including five Cannes Lions. This also included being awarded the No. 1 Global Mobile Campaign for Rip Curl Search GPS at the Big WON Rankings, Best of Show for Commonwealth Bank at the Mobius awards and winning a SXSW Interactive Award for Missing Persons Pre-Roll in Activism.

“This is an extremely proud moment for an agency just three years old today in Australia,” said Aden Hepburn, managing director and executive creative director at VML Australia.

“It’s also a huge testament to the ambition, passion and dedication of our agency staff, and just as much to our amazing clients who we partner with every day to create outstanding work," said Hepburn.

“I’m incredibly proud of Aden and every VMLer who has contributed to the exceptional work and growth of VML in Australia,” said Jon Cook, global CEO at VML.

“This is a wonderful honour and a great example of how talented people and amazing client partners have made VML the globally recognised agency it is today.”

Jason Buckley, Y&R Group ANZ CEO, adds: “VML Australia has shown great passion and determination to make it to this point. The relentless focus on delivering best-in-class work for our clients is what motivates the team, and it's pleasing to receive the recognition from our industry for this.”

Since its launch, VML Australia has grown to 80-plus staff in its Sydney office on the back of key client partnerships with many of Australia’s (and New Zealand’s) largest and most innovative brands, such as Kellogg, Emirates, Revlon, LG, Commonwealth Bank, Rip Curl, Pernod Ricard, NSW Government, ASB Bank, The NRL and Microsoft. VML Kansas City was also listed in the Warc 100 top digital agencies ranking.
