The list honors groundbreaking businesses that are making a profound impact on industry and culture.
TBWA\Raad has been named to Fast Company Middle East's prestigious annual list of the Most Innovative Companies in the Middle East for 2022, ranking number one in the advertising sector.
The list honors groundbreaking businesses that are making a profound impact on both industry and culture, ultimately thriving in today's ever-changing world. This year’s Most Innovative Companies list recognizes 42 organizations across 25 categories, including advertising, AI, beauty, consumer goods, e-commerce, emerging tech, energy, retail, sustainability, and women-backed businesses, featuring giant brands such as IBM, L’Oréal, and PepsiCo, among others.
To determine the list, Fast Company Middle East's editors mined several hundreds of nominations from companies that embody innovative and creative problem-solving, recognizing the companies that rose above and the business trends they're advancing.
TBWA\Raad was named “for re-engineering brand experiences by helping brands take customer engagement to the next level” and for “transcending the cliches and producing exceptional work that got attention.”
“It is an honor to receive recognition as one of Fast Company’s Most Innovative Companies in the Middle East," said Reda Raad, CEO of TBWA\Raad. " We are very thrilled to be number one in the advertising sector and to be recognized for our commitment to innovation and to the power of disruptive creative ideas on behalf of our clients. TBWA\Worldwide has also received this honor in 2022 for the fourth consecutive year. Being nominated today again by Fast Company in the Middle East proves to us even more that a global creative collective can be among the most innovative companies in the world. Thank you to our people and our clients who have made this recognition possible. “
Earlier this year, TBWA\Raad had launched NEXT, a creative-led innovation consultancy designed to shape the future of brand experiences and help brands take their customer engagement to the next level.
