Judges are creative professionals whose talent exceeds a high standard of excellence and whose work serves as a benchmark for the industry.

“It’s humbling to receive not just one MarCom Award, but two,” said Eric Burg, President and CEO of Apple Rock. “We bring innovation and creativity to every client and every project. Occasionally, those efforts are recognized and rewarded by the industry at large. On behalf of our clients, we are honored to receive these awards.”

The new display is something we are certainly proud to call ‘ours.’ Choosing Apple Rock as a partner has proven to be a great move.”
