Chicago, IL (PRWEB) June 26, 2012
Jacobs Agency was presented with two Stevie® Awards in the categories of Agency of the Year and Food & Beverage Marketing Campaign of the Year during the 10th Annual American Business Awards. The American Business Awards are the nation’s premier business awards program. All organizations operating in the US are eligible to submit nominations – public and private, for-profit and non-profit, large and small.
“We are extremely proud and humbled to receive top honors from the American Business Awards. Coinciding with our 15th year in business, our Stevie® Awards stand as a testament to how much we’ve grown as an organization,” said Tom Jacobs, President.
Nicknamed the Stevies for the Greek word for “crowned,” the trophies were presented to honorees during a gala banquet on Monday, June 18 at the Marriott Marquis Hotel in New York. More than 500 nominees and their guests attended. The presentations were broadcast live by the Business TalkRadio Network. Stevie Award winners were selected by more than 270 executives nationwide who participated in this year’s judging process.
In the category for Food & Beverage Marketing Campaign of the Year, Jacobs Agency was honored for the work they put forth on behalf of Tate & Lyle’s PUREFRUIT TM campaign. Designed to generate sales leads for PUREFRUITTM Monk Fruit Extract, the campaign leveraged direct mail and email to outline the features and benefits of PUREFRUITTM as a key ingredient for food and beverage manufacturers.
Jacobs Agency was also honored with a Silver Stevie® Award for Agency of the Year. With the recent launch of its refreshed brand, the Agency was recognized for its Through the LinesSM engagement philosophy, as well as its PR, social media and thought leadership initiatives toward self-promotion.
“During our rebranding process, the Agency quickly evolved to function as its own marketing team,” said Jacobs. “It’s important to us that our clients and prospects see our philosophy come to life in the way we promote ourselves. We want to be our own best case study.”
