The Prolific North Top 50 Digital Agencies survey, in partnership with Mustard Research, ranked Stickyeyes as the leading agency based in the north of England, ahead of two other Leeds agencies; Epiphany and Twenty Six Digital.
In total, Yorkshire agencies take up six of the top ten positions, going against the perception that Manchester is the North’s largest digital region.
The research looks at a number of criteria for digital agencies headquartered in the north of England, including employee headcount, turnover, turnover growth and balance sheet. More than 140 agencies were reviewed, with the top 50 being named today (Wednesday 12th February).
This is the first Top 50 Digital Agencies survey conducted by the publication, following rankings of the top 50 PR agencies and top 50 integrated agencies in 2013.
Craig Chalmers, CEO and founder of Stickyeyes, said:
“We’re immensely proud to be named as the leading agency in the Prolific North survey, coming ahead of some very strong competition from across the region.
“We’ve always concentrated on delivering success for clients and it’s through their successful growth that we can continue to grow. As a people business, it’s also a direct reflection of the world class talent we have here at Stickyeyes.
“It is also extremely pleasing to see the strength of the digital industry in Yorkshire, and Leeds in particular, reflected by this report and it is a strong endorsement for the quality of talent within the region.
“With the top ten being dominated by Yorkshire agencies, perhaps Google should consider moving their Northern offices away from Manchester and come across the Pennines to Leeds?!”
