About WAA Chosen Ltd

WAA Chosen are a Sutton Coldfield-based marketing and advertising agency seen as one of the UK’s most-respected independent agencies.

Chief Executive Andy Wilson founded the agency in 1986 with no business experience and a £6,000 overdraft. Since then, he’s developed the agency into a giant, with a roster of household-name clients.

The agency have grown both organically and through acquisition, constantly adapting to thrive in an ever-changing economy. Today, clients include Jewson, Diageo, Britvic, Audi, Marston’s and Pirelli.

The trademarked phrase ‘Business Creativity’ sets WAA Chosen apart. This means being alive to every opportunity for clients to grow, having the instinctive ability to solve marketing challenges, and having a natural curiosity that comes from spending more time in clients’ markets and close to their business.

It’s also an entrepreneurial spirit that can spot the true triggers of brand performance and get them firing.
