NEW YORK, N.Y. (December 30, 2013) -- Meredith Xcelerated Marketing (MXM), Meredith Corporation’s (NYSE:MDP; www.meredith.com) global customer engagement agency, announced today that it has been included in the newest Gartner “Magic Quadrant for Global Digital Marketing Agencies” report.  The report was published on December 5, 2013.
For this report, Gartner focused on 17 agencies that are strategically and creatively led. The agencies were evaluated on “completeness of vision” and “ability to execute” and placed into one of four quadrants: niche players, visionaries, challengers and leaders. MXM is one of three agencies in the Niche Players category.
“As the digital marketing landscape continues to evolve, it becomes harder and harder for agencies to differentiate themselves,” said David Brown, EVP and General Manager of MXM. “We feel our inclusion underscores MXM’s ability to create strategic, content-centric marketing programs with data-driven, multichannel support. For clients with a story to tell, we have a compelling solution.”
This inclusion comes amid MXM’s strong client work for Kraft, Samsung and Chrysler, as well as strong organic growth in the automotive, healthcare and entertainment sectors.
