Leaders of The Caliber Group have been selected the 2009 Advertising Professionals of the Year by the Tucson Advertising Federation.
Linda Cohen and Kerry Stratford are being recognized at the Tucson Advertising Federation’s 28th annual ADDY® Awards gala event on Saturday, Feb. 21, at the Tucson El Conquistador Resort.
Cohen and Stratford were selected for “their long and distinguished service to the Tucson Advertising Federation, as well as for their volunteer contributions to a broad number of local charitable causes,” a release said.
“As the leaders of The Caliber Group, they both demonstrate excellent reputations, leadership and their agency’s community spirit speaks loud and strong throughout Tucson,” it continued.
The Tucson Advertising Professional of the Year award is presented annually in memory of Warren F. Olson, a longtime Tucson radio sales manager. The recipient is recognized “as a model for others, and as an exceptional professional leader in the field of advertising,” it continued.
The Tucson Advertising Federation and Ad2 Tucson are comprised of more than 400 local advertising and media professionals. Both clubs work to enhance the professional development of club members, while increasing recognition for the advertising industry and giving back to the local community.
