We were honored today to learn that FM won the IAB’s Sales Excellence Award for “Best Newcomer.”
This is truly quite an honor. The award recipients were chosen via a “survey asking marketers, agency planners and buyers to evaluate the performance of interactive sales organizations since 2004.” That means our customers independently chose us among all other media companies on the Web.
There’s no greater validation than to be singled-out by our customers among all the smart, talented, hard-working media companies and sales organizations out there on the Web. Thank you to each and every one of our marketer and agency friends. We appreciate your support and look forward to even greater things in 2010.
Who else won? Google for long-term achievement, and Yahoo for innovation. Via the Press Release:
“The Sales Excellence awards are based primarily on customer feedback—the very best indicator of outstanding leadership and performance of both individual account executives and sales organizations. The Service Awards recognize individuals who made exceptional contributions to building the interactive advertising industry as a whole. Both awards acknowledge the hard work, dedication and excellence necessary to drive growth in our industry, particularly in such challenging times,” said Sherrill Mane, SVP Industry Services for the IAB. “We congratulate all the winners and celebrate their achievements.”
