Compliance Management International (CMI) is the first of two account wins announced this week by The Mission Control Communications. The news follows an intensive month of pitching and presentation work that saw The Mission go head to head with two North American agency groups.
It is understood that in the first instance, The Mission will be working with CMI, headquartered in North America, to create a design package for the company’s core business-to-business activities that will form an indispensable tool for employees world-wide.
James Killoran, Head of Strategy at The Mission Control said: “As a company that already has a Fortune 500 client base spanning Manufacturing, Utilities, Insurance, Electronics, Chemical, Pharmaceutical, Transportation, Technology and Government, we’re looking forward to working with CMI to build on that global reputation”.
In its second win of the week, The Mission Control Communications has been appointed to work with the Strategic Investment Board (SIB) to develop a digital visualisation and copywriting strategy that will clearly communicate the organisational values and objectives of a government body to internal and external audiences.

Commenting on one of the agency’s wins, Creativepool Judge and Executive Creative Director at Grey Group, New York, Joanna Carver commented: “Really nice thinking. I’m sure it felt very personal to each person receiving it. I love that you used each person’s desk as a media – really smart. This campaign absolutely deserves credit. Rare to see an internal campaign go to this level of thought and effort and I applaud all of the craft that went into it.”
The Communicator Awards (CA) receives more than 6,000 entries from agencies worldwide and recognises work that is best in field.
