Epic Media Group, the preeminent digital marketing solutions partner to brands and agencies, announced today that its marketing team won a Stevie Award for Marketing Team of the Year across all industries at the 2011 American Business Awards. The awards were presented during ceremonies last night at the Marriott Marquis Hotel in New York City. The ceremonies were hosted by Cheryl Casone of Fox Business Network and broadcast nationwide on radio by the Business TalkRadio Network.
"It is always an honor to get a Stevie Award, and we are excited to have earned the highest recognition possible for the second time in three years," said Mike Sprouse, Chief Marketing Officer. "The award is really a reflection of the tremendous work we've done in 2010 and so far in 2011, and a testament to how effective small teams can be if they're put in a position to succeed, can utilize their collective strengths, and can employ some creative license along the way."
The award comes on the heels of the team's work in helping establish Epic Marketplace (epicmarketplace.com) as the company's premier go-to-market brand, creating a comprehensive, unified marketplace that combines its multichannel digital advertising capabilities. Epic Marketplace enables brands and advertisers to leverage the distinctive strengths of social media, pervasive mobile advertising, premium display targeting, video and rich media.
Stevie Awards were presented in over 40 categories including Best Overall Company of the Year, Executive of the Year, and Best New Product of the Year. More than 2,800 entries from organizations of all sizes and in virtually every industry were submitted for consideration. More than 200 executives across the country participated in the judging process to determine the Finalists and Stevie Award winners.
"In the past year and a half, our entire marketing and creative services team has really been able to expand the suite of capabilities we provide in-house and out-of-house through revenue-producing programs, branding, event marketing, web design, cause marketing, trade marketing, and of course public relations," said Sprouse. "We've helped to solidify, along with strong leadership from the rest of the teams around our company, an industry-leading position in interactive marketing with strong prospects for future growth."
Epic Media Group was named a finalist in six other categories in last night's awards, and won the 2010 award for "Best Overall Company of the Year – Under 2,500 Employees".
