(Here’s our actual FoxFuel inside the office language) Holy crap, we are BLOWING UP!

“We have clients that trust us and give us an open launchpad to conceptualize, execute and deliver on the great creative ideas that come from our collaboration,” said CEO Colton Mulligan.

“Six months ago we were working in my basement, then we moved into a Nashville high rise, and now we’ve been recognized by the North American Excellence Awards as a finalist for the Newcomer Agency of the Year. I can’t believe that we started from the bottom, and now we’re here.”

The North American Excellence Awards is a global organization which hosts a yearly award ceremony to honor the most outstanding achievements of marketing and communications professionals in the field. The jury is comprised of 30 leading professionals from companies like Visa, Coca-Cola, Marriott, and the Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation. This year, the organization received over 2,600 applications. 

Winners in other categories include:

  • Southwest Airlines – Communications Team of the Year
  • ESPN – Entertainment and Culture
  • Mars Food – Food and Beverage
  • Special Olympics World Games – Change Communication
  • Southern Comfort – Launch
  • Taylor Guitars – Relaunch 
  • PepsiCo – Issues and Reputation Management

A complete list can be found here.

These are the other winners—basically this is who we’ll get to celebrate with in April when we go to the New York awards show: Volvo, Dell, MasterCard, Visa, Epson, Whirlpool, Bank of America, Citi, Unilever, Novartis, Maytag, Boston Market, Colgate-Palmolive, Microsoft, Samsung, ConAgra, Subaru, Philips, Delta Faucet, CSX, Lockheed Martin, and KAYAK.

To be honest we don’t really know why we won, but here are some projects we think had something to do with it (or check out this weird blog post Colton wrote explaining what we do, by comparing it to his philosophy on dating in Nashville).
