01 May 2015

Stein IAS left last night’s BMA Global ACE Awards as the event’s most awarded agency for the third consecutive year after picking up an impressive 22 accolades.

The agency’s ACE award-winning work included seven ‘Firsts’, eight ‘Seconds’ and seven ‘Third’ place honors for efforts on behalf of clients including Chicago Board Options Exchange, Trelleborg, Juniper Networks, Ingredion, KPMG and Knowledge Delivery Systems. Organized by the Business Marketing Association (BMA) New York City chapter, the Global ACE Awards, held in New York (29 April), celebrate the very best of global B2B creative. The agency scooped prizes across categories from Single Print Ads, Mobile Marketing and Tagline, to Multi-Channel Demand Generation and Content Marketing.

Michael Ruby, VP, Executive Creative Director, Stein IAS (Americas) commented: “In a time when too much business marketing is pedestrian, clichéd and watered down by too much caution and too many committees, we’re continually pushing the boundaries of uncompromising originality and creativity, dispelling the myth that B2B creativity is dull and ordinary.”

“To take home the most ACEs, the most respected measure of global creative B2B marketing, for a third year in a row once again demonstrates the power of our advanced marketing processes and creative firepower, affirming our standing as one of the world’s best B2B creative agencies.”

The announcement comes in the same week as the agency collected three honors from the 21st Annual Communicator Awards. This was the first year the agency had entered the international awards program that is sanctioned and judged by the Academy of Interactive and Visual Arts, and honors excellence in marketing and communications.

The agency was praised for its highly effective ‘Everyday Ingenuity’ and ‘Rubber Stamped’ campaigns, collecting three prestigious honors for its work with Trelleborg: The Integrated Campaign Award for Excellence, and Awards of Distinction in Marketing Effectiveness and Online Video.

Voted best for ‘Strategic Thinking’ by clients in the Recommended Agency Awards, Stein IAS continues to add to its impressive collection of awards. Copywriter and Copy Management leader, Cynthia Scheid, was also named a B2B Rising Star 2015 by B2B Marketing magazine.

Tom Stein, Chairman and Chief Client Officer, Stein IAS added: “To be awarded 27 awards across four awards schemes in just one week is a true reflection of our the dedicated and talented people that make up our agency. This recognition is a result of their combined efforts to make our clients the most important. We will definitely be celebrating.”
