CHICAGO, October 15, 2013 — Tonight OgilvyOne Worldwide once again became the dominant force at the Direct Marketing Association's annual ECHO awards gala. The customer engagement agency took home 28 awards, more than double the nearest competitor.

The ECHO Awards are the only global awards that recognize creativity and effectiveness in the specific discipline of digital, direct and customer engagement. Of the 1,200 global submissions, 90 trophies were awarded, with OgilvyOne accounting for just under a third of these.

Congratulations to all of our winning offices – this was a very proud moment and a great achievement for our network.
