“We are thrilled to be honored by AAM, and exceptionally proud that our rebrand and website were recognized by expert category judges, including professionals in marketing, advertising, communications and design,” said Matthew Boyle, Chief Marketing Officer (CMO), at AAFCPAs.  “We are very privileged to market such an authentic brand.  You can be the best marketers in the world but if your brand is not authentic, clients will see right through it.” In January 2015, Alexander Aronson Finning CPAs announced the adoption of AAFCPAs as its global brand name, unveiled a new logo and website, and adopted “great minds | great hearts” as its tagline. The change better reflects the company’s growth and evolution as the preeminent independent, regional CPA and consulting firm with national and global reach. “The new brand encapsulates the energetic culture of AAFCPAs, the positive difference we make for our clients and our generous spirit which benefits the communities where we live and work,” adds Boyle. AAM’s Marketing Achievement Awards recognize outstanding achievement in accounting marketing nationally, and feature awards in multiple categories, including: websites, branding, content marketing, and multimedia.  Awards for marketing accomplishment were presented at the 26th edition of the AAM Summit, where expert judges selected from over 125 final entries. Winning entries were also recognized for the accomplishment of a specific goal or objective, executing a project strategically, and measurable results.
