Didn’t See This Coming: “2010 Phoenix Advertising Person of the Year”

No one was more surprised than I Saturday night when the American Advertising Federation – Metro Phoenix announced the Ad Person of the Year.

I was a bit of a deer in the headlights during my acceptance speech, so I thought I’d take another shot at it from a chair lift in Telluride, CO.

A “Thank You” from the 2010 Phoenix Ad Person of the Year from ParkHowell.com on Vimeo.

_MG_9942My recognition is simply a reflection of all of the incredibly talented people that work with the Park&Co team, both in the office and as freelancers, as well as the remarkable clients that allow us to do meaningful work on their behalf. For example, the agency was recognized for two other campaigns: Metro Light Rail and INT Technologies.

The award has also come at an interesting time. March 1, 2010 marked the 15th anniversary of Park&Co, and we’ve launched our new website to celebrate the occasion. The site is unusual because we don’t want to just tell you our story, we want to hear yours.

Thank you one and all for this tremendous honor.
