Bloomberg Named In-House Agency of the Year
With the crystal trophy and colleagues by his side, Bloomberg’s global head of Bloomberg Studio, Michael Eisenreich, took the stage at the recent IHAF Conference to accept top honors on behalf of his team—the 2018 In-House Agency of the Year. “Ours is a story of grit and determination over many, many years,” said Michael. “So, it’s truly an honor for us to be given this award.”
The 100+ person in-house agency that is Bloomberg Studio responds to over 600 creative challenges per month, supporting every department across a 20,000-person enterprise. The Bloomberg team stood out among all of the entries IHAF received because of their demonstrated ability to support a complex mix of brands, products and initiatives—connecting Bloomberg to a range of new audiences worldwide.
In accepting the award, Michael was gracious enough to note how being a member of IHAF has helped his team. “The In-House Agency Forum has provided us with the opportunity to meet other groups like ours and discuss our shared challenges and opportunities,” he explained. “It's such an honor to be named In-House Agency of the Year—our team is thrilled.”
Congratulations, Bloomberg Studio!
We are also pleased to honor two finalist teams—Deloitte and PwC—both of whom emerged as top shops this year. Deloitte’s Green Dot Agency was recognized for standing up a new team, building significant capacity and capability with no added headcount. The in-house agency at PwC was cited for its success enabling and empowering its people to approach problems with a digital mindset.
All three of these teams exemplify performance excellence when it comes to business impact, client partnerships, creative expertise, operational effectiveness, and talent and teamwork. This marked our eighth year honoring in-house agencies that perform at peak, advancing the businesses and brands they support. Want to read more about this year’s winner and finalists? Click here.
