It’s fantastic for the team to be recognised for their hard work and all the activity that goes behind promoting and marketing drp. This is an accolade we’re all proud of and it wouldn’t be possible without the drive, passion and commitment of the drp PR and marketing team, all of this together has helped to cement this achievement.”
Dale Parmenter, CEO of drp also commented: “The industry awards have brought together the best of EVCOM. Being shortlisted is a huge achievement, but to take home nine awards, including agency of the year, is something that we are extremely proud of and caps off a successful year for the drpteam.”
