Philly-Based Creative Shop Honored for Third Year in a Row
BOSTON, July 31, 2015 – Red Tettemer O'Connell + Partners (RTO+P) won a Gold for Small Agency of the Year 76 – 150 Employees, at Ad Age's 2015 Small Agency Conference and Awards Show, which took place last night in Boston, MA. The goal of the awards – now in its seventh year – is to honor and uncover agencies that punch above their weight and to recognize the smart thinking and innovative brand ideas produced by smaller shops.
"It’s an honor to be acknowledged for the third year in a row as an agency that's shaking up advertising and the traditional agency model,” said Steve Red, President & Chief Creative Officer of RTO+P. “And here’s to our client partners who inspire us every day to make them unforgettable.”
This prestigious award comes on the heels of exciting growth for RTO+P as it continues to add national brands to a roster that includes Planet Fitness, Kellogg’s-owned Morningstar Farms, Dockers, Under Armour and William Grant & Sons’ Reyka Vodka. RTO+P’s desire to position itself for business and talent opportunities on both coasts led to opening its first California office a year and a half ago, which it quickly outgrew, prompting a move to larger offices in Santa Monica last summer. Since then, the agency has brought on Dockers and Morningstar Farms, partly because of the additional firepower from the West Coast.
“We’re honored to be recognized by Ad Age again,” said Steve O’Connell, Executive Creative Director & Partner. “We have very high aspirations for ourselves and this is a nice signal that we’re getting to where we want to be.”
This is the third year in a row RTO+P has been honored with a Small Agency award. The agency won Gold in 2013 (Agency of the Year: 11-75 Employees) and Silver in 2014 (Agency of the Year: 75-150 Employees).
