PHD Germany takes third place in the recently published Media Agencies Billings Rankings & Market Shares 2020 Report by the French market research company COMvergence.

PHD Germany secured a top-three finish in the COMvergence ranking for the first time.  True to its agency credo, Make the Leap, PHD achieved this with a brilliant growth of 46.9%, jumping from ninth place in 2019 to the bronze medal position in the current list. This was helped by PHD’s budget gains from Aldi Nord and Aldi Süd, Etsy and Diageo.

Paul Remitz, CEO of Omnicom Media Group Germany, said: “I warmly congratulate Holger on the excellent placement of PHD Germany and at this point would like to emphasise how important each individual employee of the group is for this groundbreaking success.” 

Holger Thalheimer, PHD Germany CEO, commented: “We were pleasantly surprised by the new COMvergence ranking. Our goal was always a place among the top five agencies in Germany. We know our growth, of course, but the fact we are moving from number nine to three so quickly is fantastic news. For us, third place is the confirmation of our work and, at the same time, the drive to continue working on ourselves and our performance for our customers. Definitely a ranking for framing and hanging on the wall.”
