Des Moines marketing firm presented with a new BBB award

WEST DES MOINES, Iowa (June 30, 2023) – Strategic America (SA), a full-service integrated marketing agency in West Des Moines, Iowa, was recognized by the Better Business Bureau Serving Greater Iowa (BBB) with an Honor of Distinction during the annual Torch Awards on June 15. SA was one of four companies recognized by the new BBB award.

Due to a record number of Torch Award Entries in 2023, the BBB judges created the Honor of Distinction Award out of respect for Torch Award submissions that differentiated themselves from the rest. SA is a BBB member in good standing, and a two-time winner of the Torch Award for Business Ethics, once in 2010 and again in 2016.

“We are thrilled to have earned the Honor of Distinction Award from the Better Business Bureau,” said John Schreurs, president and CEO of SA. “At SA, we are dedicated to our clients as we work to find a better way—always, and we’re glad our dedication is evident to the judges.”

The BBB started the Torch Awards to recognize businesses implementing policies that elevate their commitment to being an ethical business.

“At the core of every brand is its integrity, something we’ve always valued at Strategic America,” said Mike Schreurs, chairman and chief strategist at SA. “This BBB validation speaks volumes to how we work and serve our clients.”
