Jody Berg, owner and CEO of Baltimore marketing agency Media Works, Ltd., has been named a recipient of the American Advertising Federation of Baltimore’s prestigious Silver Medal Award.
The Silver Medal Award program was established in 1959 to recognize men and women who have made outstanding contributions to advertising and who have been active in furthering the industry’s standards and responsibility in areas of social concern.
“Jody is incredibly deserving of this award as a result of her countless contributions to the Baltimore advertising community as well as her support of many charities within Baltimore,” said Michele Selby, president of Media Works.
Following seven years of learning and growing at a full-service agency, Berg set out to pursue her vision of creating a company that puts media in the forefront. This vision led her to start Media Works 27 years ago at her kitchen table. She has grown the company into one of the largest media agencies on the East Coast with more than 30 employees, $80 million in annual billings, an ever-expanding list of services and an extensive and diverse client list.
She sits on the board at Northwest Hospital, is an active member of The Associated: Jewish Community Federation of Baltimore and participates in many events and programs for the House of Ruth and Dyslexia Tutoring Foundation.
