Founder & CEO at Purity, Rob Quinn takes a brief look back at the past 10 years.
02 November is just a date in the diary for most people. To everyone at Purity today represents 10 years in business. In a rare moment of sentimentality I would like to thank everyone who has contributed to, or been involved in Purity since 2007 – that extends to clients, partners, colleagues and staff who have worked all over the world for us on events and campaigns.
Purity is far from the biggest agency out there or enjoyed unprecedented growth, however when I look back at some of the work we have delivered and the projects we’ve been involved in, I am certainly extremely proud. We’ve worked as far afield as Australia, Japan, China, Brazil & the USA. Our projects have taken us across Europe year after year and the enthusiasm today is as bright as it was on day 1 when I sat at home without a single client or a colleague to turn to.
There have been some undoubted highlights most notably the London 2012 Olympic Torch Relay & Evening Celebrations,which saw us bring together a fantastic team and experience the whole of the UK like never before. By the same token, last year’s Olympic and Paralympic Games in Rio de Janeiro was an experience that few who were lucky enough to spend time over there, will forget. Along the way we have been fortunate to work at some incredible events including the Goodwood Festival of Speed, UEFA Champions League, British & Irish Lions Tour to Australia, Cheltenham Festival and the Oxford v Cambridge Boat Race – it’s a true reflection of the exciting industry that we work in.
Along the way we have opened an office in New York and built a growing network of partner agencies across the world. We’ve even picked up the occasional award from time to time. However, more important that any of this is the fact that we’ve worked with some amazing people and built some lasting friendships as a result of our work.
Thank you once again – here’s to the next 10.
