DMi Partners Named as Finalist in 2008 American Business Awards

Agency Recognized in Two Categories for the 6th Annual Stevie® Awards

PHILADELPHIA, PA--(Marketwire - May 14, 2008) - DMi Partners, a full-service interactive marketing firm, was named a finalist today in two categories for the 2008 American Business Awards. DMi has placed as a finalist in both 'Marketing' and 'Best Executive' categories. The awards, nicknamed the Stevies® for the Greek word, 'crowned,' are the only national, all-encompassing awards honoring great performances in business, and are hailed as "the business world's own Oscars" (New York Post, April 27, 2005).

CEO Patrick McKenna believes that earning this recognition reflects DMi's success as a leader within the digital marketing industry. DMi earned finalist status in the 'Marketing' category for its redesign of Mitchell & Ness' website. DMI launched a user friendly site that showcased Mitchell & Ness' vintage-inspired apparel. The new site features a host of new navigation tools, including a dynamic two-tiered navigation system, which allows visitors to navigate to products either by their favorite team or simply by product type. DMi's marketing efforts immediately increased sales and improved the funnel process that has yielded a higher conversion rate.

"DMi is honored to receive this recognition. Our ability to understand our clients' goals and their brand, while leveraging our marketing services to produce results has proven successful; it's what made our Mitchell & Ness re-design such a success. Being recognized by such a prestigious award certainly reinforces my belief that, here at DMi, we hire the best professionals, do the best work, and produce the best results," remarked McKenna.

McKenna, who was also named a finalist for 'Best Executive,' accredits his nomination to his employees, who unanimously voted for his submission to the Stevies®. "We work as a team. Without our employees, DMi would not be one of the leading agencies in the industry. We continually work to better ourselves and our services through hard work, communication and encouragement. I am honored to receive this recognition; it truly is privilege to work with such admirable professionals who continually teach me how to better lead and serve others."

Members of the Awards' Board of Distinguished Judges & Advisors and their staffs will select Stevie Award winners from among Finalists in final judging during the week of May 19. Finalists were chosen by business professionals nationwide during preliminary judging in April through early May. Stevie Award winners will be announced during the annual gala on Thursday, June 12 at the Marriott Marquis Hotel in New York City. More than 600 executives from across the U.S.A. are expected to attend. The ceremonies will be broadcast on radio nationwide by the Business TalkRadio Network and hosted by Liz Claman of FOX Business Network.
