Imprint team members react to the big news

We were thrilled and honored to receive the Agency of the Year award at this year’s Content Marketing World, run by the Content Marketing Institute. With nine nominations and three wins over 10 years, it’s a track record we’re very proud of. The work we do depends on our clients’ collaboration and commitment, so we see this award as theirs as much as ours.

We asked members of our team to express what this most recent Agency of the Year award means to them:

What was your reaction to the news?

“So happy! I’m proud of our team and our work. It feels great to be recognized!”— Jenna Gardner, Director

“We’ve worked hard as a team all year to deliver on projects for our clients and to keep up with industry research and trends. As a small agency, we’ve made a major ‘imprint’ in all areas!” — Cynthia Marino, Associate Director

“I was elated. One thing that really struck me as outstanding is that we won, in part, with the work we are doing for our financial services clients. At the CMAs we go head-to-head with marketers in other industries, who are not operating under the same legal and regulatory constraints as we are, and we won!” — Ken Williams, Managing Director, Business Development

What did the award validate?

“The quality of our work. We strive day in and day out to create the best content possible for our client, and it’s so rewarding to have our peers acknowledge that.” — Kim Amadeo, Editorial Director

“We are proud of what we do, but this award confirms that the work really is extraordinary.” — Peter Gallagher, Director of Finance 

What do you think contributed most to the win?

“This recognition celebrates everything we create together with our clients. It is a reflection of the innovative thinking that goes into our programs. With our clients who are willing to try new things, Imprint really has the opportunity to showcase our strengths on many levels.” — Ashley Brenner, Creative Director

“We dedicate our attention to clients’ needs and goals. Everything we do aims to help them build connections and community with their key stakeholders and customers. There’s no greater encouragement than to have that work recognized by fellow marketers.” — Nelson Peña, Senior Copywriter

“We always focus on the audience when we develop projects, every single time. What do they need? What’s in it for them? Will this resonate? That kind of discipline pays off in results for our clients.” — Meg Sullivan, Managing Director

Our team has been creating award-winning work for over 10 years. We’d love to bring our perspective and expertise to your next project. Let’s connect to discuss your goals and ideas for how we can help. Contact us here or email
