Pace Named Content Marketing Agency of the Year

Agency Awarded Highest Industry Honor For The Second Time in Five Years

NEW YORK (September 7, 2017) — Pace, the largest independently owned brand storytelling agency in North America, was named Agency of the Year at the Content Marketing World conference in Cleveland. This is the second time in the past five years Pace has won the agency of the year award for agencies with more than 100 employees, and it is the only agency in its category to be named a finalist every year since 2013. The Agency of the Year award is given to an agency that has distinguished itself through innovative content marketing programs that serve as an example for the entire industry.

The Content Marketing Awards, sponsored by the Content Marketing Institute, are the largest international content marketing awards program recognizing the very best projects, agencies and marketers in the industry each year. Judging is based on the agency’s performance as well as the innovation in multi-platform publishing. The award was presented at Content Marketing World, the institute’s annual conference. More than 4,000 marketers and industry professionals from over 550 companies attended the conference this year.

Pace was also honored as a finalist in six other prestigious Content Marketing Award categories for content produced on behalf of NewYork-Presbyterian Hospital, The Auto Club Group (AAA), Southwest Airlines, and Four Seasons Hotels and Resorts.

“While it is wonderful to win, it is more about our clients and team members being able to do great work together and helping reimagine what ambitious brands are capable of. We are thankful to an international panel of judges who reviewed our agency’s work, and to Joe Pulizzi and his team at the Content Marketing Institute for another great year at Content Marketing World,” said Jason Whiting, president of Pace.
