The winners of the inaugural Drum Marketing Awards US have been announced… And we’re thrilled to have been highly commended for ‘Rebrand/Relaunch’ – a category that focuses on innovation, resourcefulness and customer-led results. This comes fresh from being awarded ‘B2B Marketing Strategy of the Year’ at the UK Drum awards last year. Thank you judges!

Since we expanded into the US in 2016, the market has responded extremely well to our approach, evidenced by a year on year US CAGR of 131%. What began as a close-knit ecosystem in Silicon Valley has grown into a strong US client base and a global innovation ecosystem, helping our clients around the world solve their toughest business challenges. 

The US has become an important part of our business and is at the forefront of driving our future growth. This award is a real testament to the quality of work our teams are delivering for our clients across the globe.

Eric Rich, who leads our US business, said:

Elixirr’s US expansion continues to be an integral part of our growth story. Our clients tell us that our challenger approach – listening and truly understanding their issues, quickly getting into the details, embracing our innovation network to curate potential solutions, then collaboratively working with them in rapid sprints to deliver results – is resonating extremely well, and to have this reinforced by The Drum is an honor.

Eric continued “We’ve got big ambition, and we’re positioned well to deliver on the tremendous opportunities in this market. We believe now is the right time to really accelerate our growth.”

Stephen Newton, Founder & Managing Partner said:

Our brand is at the heart of what we do, and it continues to evolve to keep up with our rapid pace of growth as we diversify into further capabilities and geographies. Our brand is our identity and it’s really important to me that it remains true to the core values that we built Elixirr around. Complacency isn’t something I’ve ever been comfortable with, and as a firm we always challenge ourselves to raise the bar. Congratulations team!

The Drum is one of the most prestigious marketing awards in the creative world. As a challenger in a traditional industry, and a relatively new brand in the US, recognition like this is very special.
