Event description
Join AAF Charlotte as we celebrate the career and legacy of Nancy Haynes, as the 2019 Silver Medal Award winner!

About this Event

Nancy Haynes has historically been at the helm. She’s been some variation of principle/co-owner/president of successful Charlotte-based agencies since the early 70s. From her “Chesson” days (1973-1983) to Bi-Media (1984-1998) to Collins, Haynes & Lully (1998-2018), she has always been a groundbreaker. In that time, she’s developed a broad-reaching reputation for her expertise as a media strategist and creative thinker.

Nothing may capture Nancy’s contribution to the general advancement of advertising better than her tireless commitment to “reaching the people who count,” rather than “counting the people you reach.” She passionately taught this methodology as far and wide as she could. And, it paid off. Again and again. This was especially evident when working with clients/brands that had gobs of local agencies, from Subway and Jersey Mike’s restaurants to the homebuilders she handled. Her strategies repeatedly helped her local-market clients concretely outperform their counterparts in other markets with similar, and often larger ad spends. She simply targeted better while always carefully exploring every tool and tactic from traditional to the most cutting-edge.

She worked alongside many fellow Charlotte’s Advertising Royalty (including numerous Silver Medal winners) to collaborate on countless campaigns. To that point, she has served on many boards such as AAF and the original Charlotte Ad2, Charlotte Council on Alcoholism & Chemical Dependency, University Radio Foundation, and even a surprising number of HOAs, to name a few. But it would be apt to say her overall passion for mentoring others in industry has itself been a significant standalone contribution to the welfare of others.

About the Silver Medal Award:

The American Advertising Federation's 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, creative excellence and responsibility in areas of social concern. Annually, AAF Charlotte bestows this honor upon an outstanding member of the local advertising community.
