SANTA MONICA, CA -- (Marketwired) -- 06/13/14 -- Palisades MediaGroup has been named Boutique Agency of the Year by thinkLA, the largest advertising industry organization for Southern California.
The prestigious award was presented during the 2014 thinkLA Interactive Idea Awards Gala, which celebrates LA's best and brightest from the interactive advertising and marketing community. This year's finalists and winners were chosen by a high-profile jury of advertising executives within and outside the LA market.
The jury ultimately selected Palisades MediaGroup for its exceptional new business streak and innovative digital campaigns. While the agency has been known for its work with film studios, last year Palisades MediaGroup added new clients to its roster across a variety of industries, including consumer tech, cloud computing, retail, apparel/footwear and CPG -- helping the independent agency grow its billings by $80 million. The award from thinkLA comes on the heels of a number of recent accolades, including two Davey Awards and a W3 Award for creative.
"We're incredibly humbled and thankful to thinkLA and the ad community for voting for us," said Arthur Chan, SVP, Digital Marketing. "Our talented and deeply committed teams have definitely raised the bar, setting us on a strong path moving forward."
Palisades MediaGroup CEO and Founder Roger Schaffner added, "This is a tremendous honor and a very rewarding testament to the strong partnerships we've built with our clients. As we continue to grow, this might be the last time we'll qualify as a 'boutique' agency, so we couldn't be more proud."
