Aubergine’s co-founder, Verity Clarke said: “The last year has been an incredible journey – from setting up an agency, developing our business model and acquiring some incredible clients. It’s therefore great to see Aubergine being recognised by our peers and is a testament to how far we have come in such a short space of time.”
