The Company Wins Two Silver Best in Biz Awards

The Company has been named a silver winner in two different categories in the 2015 Best in Biz Awards, including Advertising/Marketing Agency of the Year and Marketing Campaign of the Year. Advertising/Marketing Agency of the Year is a company category that awards agencies from all regions in the U.S. or Canada, and of all sizes. This year, The Company was the only agency to receive an award in this category. The silver Best in Biz award for Marketing Campaign of the Year was given to The Company for the Windstream advertising campaign.

The only independent business awards program judged by members of the press and industry analysts, Best in Biz, now in its fifth year, garnered a higher number of submissions in 2015 than in any other year. More than 600 entries were received from a wide array of public and private companies of all sizes and from a variety of industries and geographic regions in North America.

“Studying these entries, you feel the rush of relentless creativity. Hang on for the ride – the engine of innovation is racing ahead.”

“What impressed me about this year’s entries was their depth, variety and energy,” said Dale Dauten, having served on every judging panel during the past five years of Best in Biz Awards. “Studying these entries, you feel the rush of relentless creativity. Hang on for the ride – the engine of innovation is racing ahead.”
