Alicia Wadas, executive vice president and chief operating officer for LAVIDGE, was also honored as she was presented the inaugural Phyllis Ehlinger Women of Excellence Award for her outstanding efforts and contributions to the advertising industry, as well as her dedication to philanthropy and mentorship.  

Held Thursday, March 8 at the Phoenix Art Museum, The Phoenix ADDYs is the first of a three-tier process. Once an ADDY is won, winners compete against their fellow winners in a district-wide competition. Winners of the district competition will then move onto the national portion of the ADDYs. The mission of the ADDYs is to recognize and reward the creative spirit of excellence in the art of advertising.

Creativity alone doesn’t win advertising competitions. It takes innovation and knowing how to push the boundaries. “I’m extremely proud of the work our team has assembled for our clients,” said Bob Case, chief creative officer at LAVIDGE. “While it’s encouraging to be awarded for our efforts, creating solutions that move the needle for our clients is what matters most.”
