Donnelley & Sons Company
(RRD) (NYSE:RRD), a leading global
provider of multichannel solutions for marketing and business
communications, today announced that RRD Marketing Solutions was
recognized in Ad Age’s 75th annual Agency
Report
, which ranks and analyzes advertising and marketing-services
agencies based on U.S. and worldwide revenue. This is the first year
that Marketing Solutions has been included on the list, just over a year
after the new segment was formed to help clients optimize marketing
communications across all channels: online, offline and onsite.

The 75th annual Ad Age Agency Report was produced by
the Ad Age DataCenter and includes rankings of advertising, marketing
services, and media agencies based on 2018 revenue. RRD Marketing
Solutions was recognized and ranked in the following categories:

  • Largest U.S. Agencies From All Disciplines – #8
  • World’s 25 Largest Agency Companies – #18
  • Largest U.S. CRM/Direct Marketing Networks – #5
  • World’s Largest CRM/Direct Marketing Networks – #9
  • Largest U.S. Promotion Networks – #2

Advertising Age’s Annual Agency Report reflects the progress
we’ve made just over a year after the formation of the RRD Marketing
Solutions group,” said Doug Ryan, President, RRD Marketing Solutions.
“We continue to build and integrate our capabilities across all of RRD
to offer clients a powerful breadth of resources focused squarely on
optimizing program execution and return on investment.”

In late 2017, RRD hired Doug Ryan, formerly President, Digitas North
America, to lead the newly integrated RRD Marketing Solutions group. RRD
Marketing Solutions was also recognized by Forrester in two reports last
year. The group was selected by Forrester as a Leader in The Forrester
Wave™: Customer Database and Engagement Agencies, Q2 2018 and included
in Forrester’s Now Tech: Content Production Agencies, Q4 2018 report.
