BBN Golden Bee Award Trophies

DAYTON, Ohio, Nov. 16, 2023 — TriComB2B, a national agency focused on business-to-business marketing of technical products and services, announced today they are BBN’s 2023 Agency of the Year.

The agency received recognition during the partnership’s Golden Bee Awards ceremony in Milan, Italy. BBN’s awards recognize outstanding global B2B agencies within the partnership for their national and international marketing initiatives. Winners are celebrated each year at BBN’s annual general meeting (AGM) and Academy event.

“Being a BBN partner enables TriComB2B to provide outstanding support to our clients when it comes to approaching or expanding their global marketing initiatives,” said Chris Eifert, one of TriComB2B’s principals. “To be recognized for our commitment to the partnership, our clients and our global peer set during Academy is a testament to our team’s exemplary work.”

In addition to TriComB2B’s award, the agency’s BBN coordinator and senior agency marketing specialist, Kaitlyn Kraus, received individual recognition as the partnership’s Coordinator of the Year. BBN coordinators act as an agency’s main point of contact, supporting BBN initiatives and ensuring successful business engagements among lead and local agencies within the partnership.

“As a new BBN partner and coordinator, I’m humbled to be recognized this year,” said Kraus. “In addition to my own personal growth in this role, it’s amazing to see our team level up and collaborate with BBN on incredible client work. TriComB2B and I have forged so many meaningful, lasting relationships with our global team thanks to BBN.”

TriComB2B’s Lindsay Welton, production designer, and Nicole Johnson, office administrator, were also recognized during the Golden Bee ceremony for their BBN NextGen team involvement, collectively winning the BBN Task Team of the Year award. The group, who often works closely with the BBN board to ensure diversity and inclusion (D&I) are at the forefront of BBN’s communications, develops guiding frameworks for partners to adopt and improve their own D&I programs. 

Global marketers within the Americas, EMEA and APAC regions come together annually to discuss global marketing challenges, the future of B2B and their unique expertise during a four-day summit event. Agency owners and Academy attendees alike meet face-to-face to share industry and BBN knowledge to ensure successful engagements with colleagues from among 29 countries.
