Christchurch: Ad agency shortlisted for two awards

Dorset advertising agency CHS has been shortlisted for two awards at the Marketing Week Masters.

The Sector Masters nomination recognises CHS’s delivery in the retail and ecommerce sector with strategic and creative work with Lakeland – launching the brand’s first-ever loyalty scheme.

The second nomination is for Agency of the Year. Agencies in this category have demonstrated how they help their clients achieve their strategic objectives while also helping to deliver financial value. These agencies also showcase true partnership and collaboration, as well as examples of creative and innovative thinking. Other nominees include BBH, ForwardPMX, Go Inspire Group and Karmarama, some of the biggest agencies in the industry.

Winners will be announced in September as part of an online showcase of the results.

Steve Keats, CHS managing director, said: “We are absolutely delighted to be nominated for these awards and it further reinforces our excellent reputation within the industry for delivering quality services to our clients.”

This has been a really tough year for many businesses, but CHS is proud to be forging forwards with new campaigns for clients, continued recruitment drives and significant plans for the future.

“We will continue to develop new strategies that will help our clients get closer to their customers. Through tried, tested and trusted combinations of collaborative, results-driven problem-solving, connected thinking, and multi-channel customer engagement, we will carry on moving our clients and their businesses into the future,” added Keats.
