St. Jacob’s, ON, May 5, 2016 – Quarry has been named a finalist for the Business Marketing Association’s (BMA) B2 B2B Agency of the Year and selected as the winner of the BMA B2 Agency Promotion Award.

“To be recognized as a ‘B2B Agency of the Year’ finalist—not to mention win the B2 Award for top Agency Promotion—is a real honor and testament to our team’s passion for growing brands with complex buying journeys. I couldn’t be more thrilled,” said Ken Whyte, president, Quarry.

Whyte added, “The competition for this award is significant, and just being named a finalist validates the journey we’re on to help modern marketers drive real growth. We don’t often chase awards. But I have to admit; this one is extra special for us—we’ll be keeping our fingers crossed until June 1!”

The winner will be announced on June 1, 2016, at the annual B2 Awards Gala in Chicago and as the only Canadian agency to make the finalist list, Quarry is hoping to bring the award north of the border.

“What makes the BMA’s B2 Awards prestigious and unique,” stated Michael Palmer, GM, BMA, “is that this award program recognizes business marketers who exhibit excellence in results, not just great creative. The entrants have to demonstrate how they have moved the business forward in a meaningful and measurable way.”

For over four decades, the BMA B2 Awards have recognized the best business building marketing programs in the business-to-business industry. This year over 260 companies entered close to 700 entries for a chance at one of the renowned B2 awards.

When it comes to savvy B2B marketing, Quarry eats its own dog food.
