Akron, OH (PRWEB) December 24, 2006
Hitchcock Fleming & Associates Inc. (hfa), a full-service marketing communications firm based in Akron, Ohio, has recently added six International Davey Awards to its 2006 honors.
More than 3,500 worldwide entries were submitted for the prestigious recognition, and winners were chosen by the International Academy of Visual Arts, an invitation-only body composed of top-tier marketing industry professionals.
Each year, Davey Awards are bestowed upon relatively smaller firms that have big ideas.
"Great work is about fresh ideas and exceptional execution, not the biggest budgets," said Nick Betro, vice president/executive creative director at hfa.
hfa was presented the awards for its work on Geauga Lake & Wildwater Kingdom TV and radio commercials, VeritasTM and The Goodyear Tire & Rubber Company Web sites and an American Cancer Society Cuyahoga Division Cattle Baron's Ball invitation and logo.
"We feel honored and humbled to have been recognized with this distinguished award," Betro said. "It's a recognition that verifies creative minds are the most important asset a marketing communications agency can have."
hfa has been frequently honored for its achievements. In addition to the six Davey Awards, in 2006 the marketing firm received eight international Telly Awards, three New York City Business Marketing Association ACE Awards and two Web Marketing Association Internet Advertising Awards.
The Davey Award statuette is created by Encore Awards, the designer of the Golden Globe® and other notable memorabilia.
