The LOOMIS Agency is proud to announce that its President and CEO, Mike Sullivan, was awarded the prestigious Suits Award for Agency Leader of the Year at the 2023 American Advertising Awards.

The award recognizes Sullivan’s exceptional leadership and contributions to the advertising industry as a champion of challenger brand thinking, and the role company culture plays in a challenger brand’s success.

Having been with LOOMIS for over 20 years, Mike has helped to grow it into one of the top challenger branding agencies in the country. He is known as an inspirational leader who encourages his team to always strive for excellence.

As the DFW Addy Awards ceremony was held while Mike was out of town attending a leadership conference, his partner Julie Ondrusek accepted the award on his behalf. “Mike’s unwavering commitment to learning and improving himself is a true inspiration to all of us at LOOMIS,” Ondrusek said. “He dedicates so much time and energy into helping our agency grow, so I’m absolutely thrilled that he’s being recognized for everything he does.”

“I am honored to receive this award, and grateful for the support of my colleagues, clients, and partners. At LOOMIS, we are always striving to be at the top of our game. I believe this recognition is a testament to the hard work and dedication of our entire team.” — Mike Sullivan, President and CEO, The LOOMIS Agency

Sullivan is driven by the spirit of Conscious Capitalism, the concept of doing well by doing good and helping to leave the world better than how he found it. He believes that, when our intent and purpose are pure, everything we do is destined to come back many times over. And over the past two decades, it has. LOOMIS makes regular appearances on the “Best Places to Work” lists for both The Dallas Morning News and the Dallas Business Journal — and has been recognized by Advertising Age as “Best Small Agency of The Year” in the Southwest. LOOMIS Agency of Record relationships last twice the industry average, a statistic bested only by the tenure of team members who stay with the Agency nearly 3x the industry average.

The American Advertising Awards are the advertising industry’s largest and most representative competition, attracting over 40,000 entries every year. The Agency Leader of the Year award recognizes outstanding leadership in the advertising industry and is presented to an individual who has demonstrated exceptional leadership, innovation, and vision.
