What happens in Vegas, stays in Vegas. Unless you win big. In which case you scream it from the rooftops. Baker Street Advertising won Agency of the Year at the Internet Marketing Association’s IMPACT15 digital marketing conference.
When two of our leaders were invited to be keynote speakers at IMPACT15 in Las Vegas, we had no idea how far this ride would take us. We were honored to have our President and Founder, Jack Boland, and our Creative Chief, Brian Bacino, repping on the main stage. They presented “Together We’re Giant,” a dive into digital sports marketing, alongside our client Tom McDonald, the SVP of Marketing at the San Francisco Giants.
And Don Donovan AKA the “Sherlock Holmes of Big Data” AKA our Chief Strategy Officer, presented “Cracking the Code of Big Data” in a breakout session. Other speakers included executives from global behemoths like Barnes & Noble Education, Oracle Data Cloud and Evite. So, yeah, we were already stoked to be a part of it.
But little did we know that more things to celebrate were coming our way. In addition to winning Digital Agency of the Year, Baker Street Advertising also took home four more IMPACT15 trophies in four distinct social media categories for three of our clients: the San Francisco Giants, Northern California Honda Dealers and Sun-Maid.

So how do we think it happened?
BSA’s President, Jack Boland, says it’s this: “Our approach to marketing and our mantra is: Discovery. Creativity. Proof. From insight to strategically-sound creative to concrete results, winning these awards is a testament to our unique model.”
BSA’s Chief Creative Officer, Brian Bacino, adds “This show is about getting results. Which we did, but I also think the judges couldn’t resist falling in love with the creative.”
Fellas, your staff agrees. And couldn’t be more excited about it.
