Dick Reed Awards 2021 Winners Announced

Just Global is thrilled to announce the winners of our second annual, Dick Reed Awards.

The winners and nominees this year exemplify the value in collaboration and partnership. These partnerships fuel the growth of our agency and continue to drive innovation across the industry. Despite all the turmoil of 2020, our partners had our backs and continued to collaborate with us as we expanded globally, grew headcount and delivered record growth for customers.

Introduced last year, the Dick Reed Awards honor Just Global’s long-time former CEO while celebrating the people, platforms and solutions that drive results for our clients. 

As a champion of collaboration, Dick Reed started the Partner Appreciation Party’s unique tradition over a decade ago. Since Dick’s passing, Just Global continues to honor the legacy and values he instilled in our agency. 

We celebrated (virtually) with our partners on Thursday, February 11th and awarded our winners. You can watch the award show below:
