HistoryEdit

David Droga founded Droga5 in New York City in 2006. Droga said that he named the agency after the tag his mother used to sew into his clothes (He is the fifth of six children and his mother stitched labels in her children's clothing based on birth order).[2]

In 2008, Droga5 opened a second office in Sydney in David Droga's homeland of Australia; this office was closed in September 2015[3] as Droga5 turned its focus to the European market and its London office, which opened in 2013.[4]

In July 2013, William Morris Endeavor announced a significant minority investment in Droga5. According to The New York Times, "executives from both companies said the partnership would allow them to create more brand-supported content by combining their significant advertising and entertainment resources."[5] Droga5's New York office relocated to Wall Street in 2014.[6][7]

In April 2019, Droga5 was acquired by Accenture.[8]
