AUSTIN, Texas--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Med Ad News, a leading pharmaceutical business and marketing publication, announced that HCB Health, one of the nation’s fastest-growing healthcare advertising agencies, is one of three finalists for Agency of the Year in Category III. This is the second consecutive year HCB has been selected to receive this honor.
Candidates for Agency of the Year are selected based on creative track records, management strength, financial performance, strategic thinking, account wins and ability to attract talent. The Category III competition recognizes advertising firms generating less than $25 million in annual revenue.
“2016 was another record-breaking year for us,” said CSO and partner Nancy Beesley. “We have hired talent from many of the top healthcare agencies across the U.S., further proof that HCB is an attractive culture for both employees and clients alike.”
“While we maintain our strong home base in Austin, we furthered our ‘get close to the customer’ strategy by opening a New Jersey office in 2016. We want to be able to give clients access to the HCB experience, regardless of where they are located,” said Kerry Hilton, CEO of HCB Health.
HCB Health also continues to build on its culture of growth and innovation in their birthplace of Austin, Texas, and served as a lead participant at SXSW’s annual Interactive Festival. They partnered with MIT Medical School and fellow healthcare agencies to host the second annual HackMed Health Hack at SXSW.
HCB Health associates will join over 600 industry peers at the 2017 Manny Awards celebration, to be held Thursday, April 20, at Pier Sixty in New York City. The annual gala celebrates excellence in healthcare communications and honors winners in over 20 categories.
