“…this year’s win is particularly gratifying because of the sheer number of awards won and the categories in which we won them.” – Rick Chiorando, EVP

Austin & Williams took home 19 awards—including top honors in both B2B and B2C campaign categories—at the 35th Annual Telly Awards, which recognizes outstanding television commercials and programs.
The Long Island, New York agency, which specializes in healthcare, financial services, and higher education marketing, was lauded for their work on behalf of clients Bridgehampton National Bank, Hudson Valley Federal Credit Union, PM Pediatrics, and Suffolk Federal Credit Union, according to Rick Chiorando, Executive Vice President and Chief Creative Officer at the branding, advertising, social media, interactive, and direct marketing firm.
“While we have been consistently recognized by the Telly Committee – and have won 32 awards over the past several years – this year’s win is particularly gratifying because of the sheer number of awards won and the categories in which we won them.” Two of the agency’s 19 awards were first-place Silver ones for their B2B and B2C campaigns for Suffolk Federal, a Long Island credit union with $1 billion in assets.
“New York’s super-competitive financial services sector features some of the world’s biggest banks and their huge budgets,” Chiorando notes. “It’s not easy to stand out in that kind of environment, but the A&W creative team does it year after year. I couldn’t be more proud of the work our agency creates.” In addition to the two first-place finishes, the agency won five bronze awards for Suffolk Federal, and another 10 for two other New York financial institutions: Hudson Valley Federal Credit Union and BNB.
Austin & Williams’ work was selected from among the over 12,000 entries from all 50 states and five continents the Telly Awards received this year. The program was founded in 1978 to showcase the best work of the most respected advertising agencies, production companies, television stations, cable operators, interactive agencies, and corporate video departments in the world.
