Stein IAS has swept the board at The Drum Agency Business Awards US 2019.

The B2B agency has taken home eight awards, including Agency of the Year and Agency Culture.

Stein submitted its culture strategy, a project that exists to generate progress to become a Deliberately Developmental Organization. The agency focuses on personal growth, pushing everyone to learn new skills and coach each other with honest feedback.

The agency also won in the Corporate Purpose category. Many agencies spend most of their time communicating their clients’ purposes, however Stein IAS' long-standing foundational purpose drives everything they do in service of advancing the theory and practice of B2B marketing in order to make its clients the most important in their markets.


Another big win of the evening comes from Drum Agency, who snapped up the Agency Business Transformation and Most Effective Campaign accolades.

Drum recently helped launch Lendly, a D2C brands which situate within an already crowded consumer lending space. As well as making noise in this area, the agency was tasked to help the brand reach a niche target audience of employees of less than 100 specifically designated companies, all with minimum 9-month tenures, located in only 5 U.S. states. The agency devised a first-of-its-kind go to market plan, full with highly sophisticated audience segmentation, media targeting, content strategy, technology and analytics components.

For Most Creative Campaign, Kovert Creative for Cadillac has won the title.

To reach new fans and generate mainstream media coverage for Cadillac’s newest vehicle, the XT4, Kovert Creative scripted and produced “Now That’s a Cardiac,” a three-minute video featuring comedic duo John Mulaney and Nick Kroll reprising their characters from their Broadway show “Oh, Hello.”
