Strategic America Named Best of Des Moines 2010


Integrated Marketing Firm Honored in Unprecedented Four Categories
(DES MOINES, IA, August 18, 2010) – Along with its national growth, Strategic America (SA), a full service, integrated marketing firm based in West Des Moines, remains dedicated to central Iowa. SA has grown its client base over the past 30 years, with revenues from outside of Iowa now more than half of its business. Yet, it remains committed to serving companies at home as evidenced in the 2010 Des Moines Business Record’s Best of Des Moines annual survey of business leaders.

SA has been selected as Best Public Relations Firm, Best Advertising Agency and Best Small Company with the Most Promising Future. Additionally, SA’s CEO Mike Schreurs, has been named a runner-up in the Best Metro Leader category.

“Strategic America is known for its critical and creative thinking leading to marketing solutions and client success,” says John Schreurs, SA’s President and COO. “It’s an honor that our clients and colleagues recognize our performance-driven culture and voted for SA as the best in advertising, in public relations and share our vision as best small company with a promising future.

This “Best Of” recognition follows several prestigious awards for SA marketing campaigns, including recognition in the 2010 DMA International ECHO™ Awards competition with a Certificate of Excellence on behalf of Service Experts, based in Dallas, Texas. Earlier this year, SA also received Platinum, Gold and Honorable Mention honors from the Hermes Creative Awards 2010 competition, a prestigious international program recognizing select creative/design professionals involved in the concept, writing and design of materials. The competition is managed by the Association of Marketing and Communication Professionals (AMCP), an international organization including marketing, advertising, public relations, media production, communication and freelance professionals.
