Mike Luscombe, CEO of The SpaceStation said: "I'm pleased that, for the second year in a row, we have retained our title as the Best Digital Sales and Marketing Team, a category which includes all Online and Mobile media owners."
The MOST awards survey over 300 key media and marketing decision makers, ranking Media Owners against 14 performance criteria, such as professionalism, business knowledge, turnaround time and after-sales service to name a few.
According to Brad Aigner, columnist for The Media Online: "It is apparent from the results that there is one media owner in the segment (The SpaceStation) that is able to cover a sufficient portion of the market and deliver a high level of service as it also won the category in 2009 as '24.com Sales'.
"The strengths of The SpaceStation in the digital category included its expert knowledge of the category and its own brands; attention to detail; and understanding of its clients' needs. Many respondents agreed that The SpaceStation lives the belief that "nothing is impossible"," wrote Aigner.
Luscombe added that of that of the hundreds of Media Owners competing for recognition, The SpaceStation came in 6th in the Overall Media Owner Rankings, 8 positions higher than their ranking of 14th in 2009.
"This is a fantastic achievement and a testament to the hard work, professionalism and commitment we have managed to develop within The SpaceStation team. It is very rewarding to be recognised at industry level and validation that our centralised structure and investment in The SpaceStation is paying off," said Luscombe.
