Mower has had a successful 2023 award season, securing top recognitions from major industry organizations. Most recently, The Drum Awards for B2B 2023, PRWeek Best Places to Work and the Hospitality Sales & Marketing Association International (HSMAI) 2023 Adrian Awards have all recognized Mower for various client and agency work, supporting Mower’s reputation as a leading independent agency.

The Drum Awards for B2B 2023, a global program honoring the companies and people around the world that bring creativity to B2B marketing, honored Mower’s creative work on two campaigns for longtime energy client FirstEnergy. The FirstEnergy “Light The Way” campaign was recognized as the best campaign in the TV and Film category, while its “Drone Safety Zone Racing Game” campaign won in the best Data & Insights category. FirstEnergy’s “Drone Safety Zone Racing Game” was also just shortlisted for an Indie Award in the Innovation Excellence category.
PRWeek named Mower to its 2023 Best Places to Work list in the Midsize Agency category. The annual listing strives to recognize organizations with positive work cultures that make employees feel valued and motivated. Mower’s 2022 decision to become 100% employee owned, as well as the exciting clients and priority for mental health were cited as top reasons for Mower’s selection. Mower is one of eight midsize agencies to be recognized, and this marks the agency’s second consecutive honor by PRWeek
