Based in London, Ontario, since 1997, this is the firm’s third time as a nominee for the Integrity awards.

Robert Adeland, President of the firm, said, “Of course, we’re extremely proud to be nominated for the award, and excited to be among the finalists in our category. We have to admit, ‘integrity’ is not the first word that comes to mind when people think of advertising agencies, but it’s a core value for us and our people. We truly believe that ‘truth in advertising’ is essential to long-term brand development and business growth.”

BBB has been presenting its Business Integrity Awards for 19 years. Any business, whether a BBB member or not, can be nominated for the award in one of two categories: for companies with 10 employees and under, or larger companies with more than 10 employees. Nominees are required to complete a detailed submission that reflects integrity in their business practices, community engagement and employee relations. Submissions are judged by a panel of three business professionals recruited from the regional community.

According to BBB, the awards are intended for “…outstanding Western Ontario businesses in recognition of their commitment to exceptional marketplace practices” and to recognize “…businesses that are committed to trust and ethics…” In addition to the award, winners are presented with a scholarship from the Rotary Club of London Foundation which they can contribute to their choice of a post secondary student.

The two winners for the 2016 awards will be announced and the four other finalists will be honoured at a special BBB event on November 2nd at the DoubleTree by Hilton in London. Keynote speaker will be Dr. Vipul Jairath, Associate Professor of Medicine, Western University, addressing the role of ethics in medical research.
