KISS steps up a gear: voted top 2 agency in Business Weekly’s New Year Honours

20 January 2014: For the fourth consecutive year, Cambridge-based creative marketing agency, KISS has been named by Business Weekly as one of the top marketing agencies in the East of England in the New Year Honours, ‘Image Makers’ announced on 16 January 2014.

Voted No 2, KISS was named by the team of judges as one of the region’s ‘peacocks’ – the best image makers in the region.

Tony Quested, Editor of Business Weekly said: “KISS Communications, headed up by CEO Simon Fryer has added an extra gear in the last 12 months. Again it owes much to astute leadership but across the team KISS does what it says and keeps things simple. It delivers easy to read, well-proportioned and stimulating material in a no-nonsense fashion and gets straight to the heart of communications.”

Built on the philosophy of keeping things simple, KISS has enjoyed a period of rapid growth recently with a number of senior appointments including:  Shona Molyneux, Finance Director; John Dibb, Head of Digital; Matt Rose, Senior Digital Designer; Dill Hill, Designer, Kelly da Silva Fernandes, Senior Account Manager; Josef de Pfeifer, Account Manager; Anna Santamaria, Account Executive, and Amy Sadler, PR Account Executive.

The agency, which was also named in Business Weekly’s Cambridge Business Leaderboard last year as one of a handful of visionary companies that are acting as pathfinders to better times in the region, has also won some high profile accounts recently, including Bidwells, Bayer CropScience, Snap-on Industrial, IXICO , Horizon Discovery and G’s.

Simon Fryer, CEO is pleased to receive this recognition from Business Weekly.  He said: “The competition is stronger than ever and we have been building our team in the last year to cement our position as the go-to agency in this region.  Our in-depth experience in strategy, creative, PR and digital has enabled us to do some fantastic work in the past year and all credit to the KISS team.  No.2 means that we still need to try harder and I have challenged everyone to make 2014 our breakthrough year.”
