Winners in first of two ABA awards events were presented on June 22 in Chicago

BDS Marketing, Inc., the marketing agency that delivers sales through innovative retail marketing services, was presented with a Bronze Stevie® Award in two categories, Executive of the Year (Advertising, Marketing & Public Relations) and Marketing Campaign of the Year (Retail), during the 13th Annual American Business Awards in Chicago on June 22, 2015.

The American Business Awards are considered the nation’s preeminent business awards program. All organizations operating in the U.S.A. are eligible to submit nominations – public and private, for-profit and non-profit, large and small. More than 3,300 nominations from organizations of all sizes and in virtually every industry were submitted this year for consideration in a wide range of categories. BDS’ entries spotlighted a variety of agency achievements, including the leadership of Ken Kress, President of BDS, their retail campaign for Center for Sustainable Energy, a BDS client program, and the launch of their new service, Break Fix. The award for Best New Product or Service of the Year, for which BDS’ Break Fix service was nominated, will be presented at the New Products Awards banquet on Friday, September 11 in San Francisco.

“As a marketing agency that prides ourselves on our people and client work, it’s an honor to be named a Bronze Stevie® Award winner in two categories thus far,” said Mark Dean, CEO and owner of BDSmktg. “In our industry today, we are one of the last privately held companies competing with multi-billion dollar conglomerates. Ken has been instrumental in keeping us rooted in our commitment to the success of our people and our business; he is truly ‘gold’ in our minds. Not to mention, being recognized for our client work at retail is a testament to our continued promise to providing brands with the best client service and performance on the retail floor.”
