Silver Medal for Golden Service: David Bowman Awarded AAF Silver Medal

Last Saturday, AAF-Dayton hosted their annual Hermes Awards to recognize outstanding creative achievement in local advertising. And while the Ohlmann Group won 8 awards for exceptional advertising for our clients, the most prestigious award of the evening went to our President David Bowman.

David was surprised by his family and colleagues and was awarded the coveted American Advertising Federation Silver Medal. The Silver Medal recognizes lifetime achievement for creative ability, contributions to his company, contributions to advertising, and contributions to the community.

David is the fourth person in the history of The Ohlmann Group to win the Silver Medal, joining our founder Walter Ohlmann, CEO Linda Ohlmann, and Vice President/Creative Director Jim Hausfeld.

At The Ohlmann Group, we’re proud of David’s most recent honor and even more proud to offer our valued clients, partners, and friends an award-winning commitment to their continued success.
