A DIGITAL marketing agency has been ranked among the best independents in the country.

Adido, based in Dean Park Crescent, Bournemouth, has been named among the top five mid-sized independent agencies in the country, giving it the much coveted ‘elite’ status.

Hundreds of agencies are reviewed in The Drum census, which measures customer opinion, peer reviews and financial strength.

Adido works with brand names such as Orange and M&S and it employs 30 people.

Its chief executive, Andy Headington, said: “We’re absolutely delighted with the accolade and we are ambitious for success.

“We set out to employ the brightest people and work for the best. But it’s still a touch weird to think of ourselves as elite, in the top five for our size in the country.”
