The votes are in, and the word is out. The DFW chapter of the Alliance of Women in Media gave LOOMIS media director Aimee Bove the Award of Excellence for 2021 at its 39th Annual Awards of Excellence Gala. The award, which is based on nominations and votes submitted by industry peers, is given annually to promote and advance women in media.
“It’s such an honor to receive this recognition from my peers and colleagues in the advertising industry,” Bove said. “The Dallas advertising community is one of the largest in the country and it’s filled with incredible talent, so that makes this especially meaningful.”
Bove has headed up the LOOMIS media department for more than 11 years and has played a pivotal role driving the agency’s media strategy and planning efforts on behalf of its clients. Over the course of her career, she’s planned and placed more than $5 billon in media while working with clients across a broad range of industry categories. LOOMIS clients relied heavily on Bove’s expertise and leadership throughout the most challenging periods of the pandemic. She credits her team of talented planners and buyers for reading the media market and staying ahead of changing currents over the last two years.
“She’s never said it aloud, but I think Aimee’s mantra is ‘never let them see you sweat’ because she never does,” said LOOMIS CEO, Mike Sullivan. “She’s got a servant’s heart, a ton of talent, and a great mind for media. In other words, she’s a superstar, and I’m delighted she’s been recognized by the Alliance of Women in Media.”
