McCann Worldgroup was named Network of the Year at the 2019 Cannes Lions International Festival of Creativity. The global agency group, which won a total of 73 Lions representing creative work from across its disciplines and all of its regions, was also named at the weeklong Festival as the Healthcare Network of the Year for its global McCann Health network, and McCann Health China was additionally honored as Healthcare Agency of the Year.
“We are very proud to win this honor at Cannes this year recognizing our creative work from so many countries, clients and disciplines, across all platforms and Lions categories,” said Harris Diamond, Chairman & CEO of McCann Worldgroup. “Thanks to the inspired leadership of [Global Creative Chairman] Rob Reilly, our incredibly diverse and talented creative staff is driving our business, and that of our clients, forward with real results.”
The network’s global recognition at Cannes follows the news two months ago that McCann Worldgroup was named the Most Creatively Effective Agency Network in the global 2019 Effie Effectiveness Index, earning that effectiveness leadership distinction for the second consecutive year.
