Tom Bedecarre, Founder And Chairman Of AKQA, Named National EY Entrepreneur Of The Year™ 2013 Media, Entertainment And Communications Award Winner

A vision renewed

AKQA weathered the storm and is now enjoying great financial strength. With its ability to provide both advertising and technology expertise, clients are offered website development, e-commerce, social media, mobile app development, search engine marketing, data analytics and digital product design services. Further proof of AKQA's success is its recent acquisition by WPP. AKQA continues to operate as an independent brand within WPP.

Bedecarre credits his team's technical acumen for the credibility AKQA has earned from the technology, IT, CIO and CTO organizations within their clients' operations. And, his team's creativity is an important factor in the relationships formed with marketing teams.

He is also unwavering in his belief in innovation and technology and believes in being shamelessly optimistic and positive about customers and the future in order to thrive in the advertising marketing space. Today, Bedecarre says he is excited to see the vision put down on paper 13 years ago become reality, but he continues to look forward.
