As described by the industry-leading publication, with budget pressures, conservative clients and continually shifting marketing models, it’s harder now than ever for agencies to stand out. But the winners of the Ad Age A-List and Creativity Awards are the big, bold thinkers—the risk takers that are shaping the future of marketing.  

“It’s validating to see others take note of the potential I saw in Empower nearly a year ago when I joined as president and chief operating officer,” said Rob FitzGerald. “As we continue to build The Creative Media Agency and bridge the gap between media and message under one roof, we’re empowering clients like Ashley HomeStore, Brooks Running, GNC and PetSmart to perform their best and achieve their business goals.”
