May 22, 2013 09:46 PM
Octagon took home the trophy in the ultra-competitive category of Best in Corporate Consulting, Marketing and Client Services at the 2013 Sports Business Awards.It was Octagon’s first win at the SBAs since the inaugural awards in 2008, when the agency was recognized as Agency of the Year.
“Honestly, it’s a big relief,” said Octagon President/CEO Rick Dudley. “I don’t know why these things matter so much, but they do and it’s great to win.”
Dudley noted that four Octagon clients were nominated for Sponsor of the Year. “We're steady,” he said. “Some people think that’s boring, but we do great work with great people for great clients over a long period, and we really try to break through at a time when there’s a lot of clutter out there.”
