Penquin Managing Director Veronica Wainstein said, ‘As a fully integrated communications agency, we’re insistent on utilising the right strategy with the right mediums to meet our client’s objectives. Penquin partners with clients where the agency can show real tangible results. We don’t enter awards lightly, but we specifically entered these because our approach with our clients is a very collaborative one based on authentic results, as these awards are. The New Generation Awards are not subjective but rather based on very measurable factors which is why we place such a large importance on them. It’s an absolute honour to have won amongst esteemed agencies like Joe Public and Flow Communications and to have our clients Suzuki and Initial in the spotlight with brands like Surf, Steers, Vodacom and Shield.
‘Winning New Generation awards that are judged on innovation, creativity, strategy, content, results and sales affirms that our unique approach and client relationships that have been built on a solid foundation over the years, is certainly on the right track. We’re looking forward to breaking more boundaries in 2019.’
Sister agency Spitfire Inbound is a digital inbound marketing agency headed by Managing Director Darren Leishman, who said, ‘We’re so pleased to have won five New Generation Awards, which follows the two Golds we received last year. Our approach with all clients is to agree upfront on measurable objectives and benchmarks and in doing so, our client’s successes become our successes.’
