Winning

MadAveGroup CEO Jerry Brown opened the 2022 Toledo ADDY Awards ceremony with this message.

If you believe that participation trophies are dangerous, if you think the term “hero” gets tossed around a little too easily these days, if you believe in pushing forward regardless of the obstacles you face, you may identify with Jerry’s take on “Winning.”

Superintendent Dr. Veronica Motley shared her vision for Sylvania Schools with us. It included elevating the district’s brand and building community support, while paying homage to the city’s two high schools. In the logo we created, the arrow pointing upward represents Northview High School, while the arrow pointing downward represents Southview High School. The word “Our” in the logo reminds community members of their importance to the city’s schools. And the tagline - “Excellence Through Opportunity” - honors both the district’s heritage and its future.

Watch the video below.

Looking Forward by Looking Back

Top Workplace Toledo 2022

“In the middle of The Great Resignation, our team is growing,” said Jerry Brown.

In fact, since January 2021, the size of our staff has increased by 25%.

“I’m convinced it’s because of our unique culture,” said Brown, MadAveGroup's CEO. And once again, there’s evidence to support that belief.

For the third consecutive year, MadAveGroup has been named one of Toledo’s Top Workplaces.

Since 2006, Energage has compiled their Top Workplace research by surveying 23 million employees in 70,000 organizations. That insight has allowed the company to identify “15 culture drivers that are critical to success in any organization,” according to Energage.com.

“When we first meet people who want to work here, they’ll often say they’ve heard great things about our environment. And when they factor in the variety and quality of the work we do, they can’t wait to be a part of this agency,” said Brown.
