Advertising Federation Honors Richter7’s President for Lifetime Achievement

The American Advertising Federation Utah honored Richter7 President Dave Newbold with its prestigious 2014 Silver Medal Award this past week.

The highest honor the advertising profession can award to a member, the Silver Medal recognizes a lifetime of achievement in the advertising field and in the community.

“We are honored to recognize Dave Newbold for his contributions to the industry,” said Gina Girardi, AAF Utah president. “Over his 35 years in the business, Dave has lined shelves with CLIO awards, OBIEs, ADDYs, EMMYs and filled drawers with Communication Arts and PRINT magazine accolades that attest to his passion for creative advertising solutions.”

Newbold has generated ad campaigns for American Express, Major League Baseball, Mrs. Fields, McDonalds, Boys Scouts of America, 7UP, Foot Locker, Questar Gas, Hogle Zoo, the Polynesian Cultural Center and The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints, to name a few.

Iconic industry magazine ADWEEK called Newbold a “creative star,” while One magazine cited him as a “stellar creative talent.”

“I deeply appreciate this great honor, but I’ve always felt awards and accolades are merely a bonus for doing the job right in the first place,” said Newbold, who purchased FJCandN with Scott Rockwood, Peggy Lander and Tim Brown in 2000 and reinvented the agency as Richter7.

Newbold is past president and board member of AAF Utah, current board member of the Advertising Marketing International Network and recipient of the Advertising Professional of the Year Award.
