Leighton have today been named as the North East’s best performing digital agency courtesy of a top 10 placing in The Prolific North Top 50 Digital Agencies 2015 poll.

With the top 10 dominated by companies from some of the North’s largest digital agency groups, Leighton are delighted to have achieved tenth place, as one of only four companies in the top 10 with less than one hundred employees.

When announcing the poll, organisers Prolific North celebrated the fact that over 150 companies submitted an entry whilst confirming that an algorithm employed by their partners Mustard Research weighted entrants on turnover, balance sheet and/or shareholder funds, ptp, growth over the past two years and headcount.

Leighton CEO Lyle McCalmont said: “We’re delighted to have achieved such a high position in the poll, which is testament to the team we’ve built here and the high quality of work we are producing for clients. To have been recognised as the North East’s best performing agency again, so soon after a similar result in the The Drum’s Digital Census, is fantastic news”.
