"We pride ourselves on partnerships with best-in-class talent and this award belongs to all of our colleagues at MDC Partners. This is truly a thrilling time to be in media, and Maxxcom Global Media is committed to helping our clients take full advantage of the new opportunities today's media technologies and innovations are offering."
Nadal was celebrated by MEDIA Magazine for his unique partnership approach to building MDC Partners, and for his success in creating Maxxcom Global Media, MDC Partners' $3.5 Billion media group.

As part of the same ceremony, MEDIA Magazine honored MDC Partners' Agencies TargetCast and The Media Kitchen, as Independent Media Services of the Year and Best Agency Under $1 Billion, respectively. In its praise of TargetCast, the publication stated, "While no longer technically independent, TargetCast has remained so in spirit and direction. Over the past year it continued to foster industry influencing innovations including building new go-to-market tools and platforms and creating a brand-extending subsidiary that broadened the shop's reach."
Recognizing The Media Kitchen, MEDIA Magazine applauded the agency for its "eclectic staffing, strategic insights and a thoroughly entrepreneurial philosophy." Added Mandese, The Media Kitchen "has one of the best cultures for understanding the future of advertising and media, and is organized in as likely a way as I can imagine to achieve it."
