Last week, Bizsense stopped by our offices to catch up with John about his recent Ad Person of the Year award from the Advertising Club of Richmond. You can read the article here.
“Richmond BizSense: How does it feel being named Ad Person of the Year? How were you announced at the ad club awards show?
John Mills: They announce it at the end; Scott Sherman (last year’s recipient) introduced me. Honestly, I was so caught up in the moment I don’t even remember what he said. I was excited and uncomfortable; it was just this surreal experience.
The recognition should really go to our team. I spearhead it because I run the agency, but none of the stuff that we do, whether it’s client work or our community engagement initiatives, would even exist if I didn’t have a team that was used to working in small-agency chaos and being really passionate, bright, caring people that are just “dive right into it” kind of people.”
