The Bulldog Award is awarded annually to an employee that demonstrates a remarkable ability to “get it done”. 

Congratulations to Lauren on the Bulldog Award!  Lauren has not only done a fantastic job in her role but, has also taken on additional business development responsibilities. Over the past year, Lauren has represented BDS in several key retailer meetings, in industry conferences, and has closed new business with multiple clients. She continues to grow her team and is adored by everyone she comes in contact with. In addition to all of this, she has demonstrated that “NO” is not a word in her vocabulary.

Founders’ Award

Kelly C., Marketing

The Founders’ Award honors our founder, Mark Dean, by recognizing the individual who best embodies the spirit, values and ethical standards that Mark started this company on.

We are excited to present Kelly with this year’s Founders’ award! Throughout her career with BDS, Kelly has made a significant impact across the business and is relied upon to think outside of the box and come up with unique and creative sales solutions. In 2019, she led multiple internal and external facing initiatives within and outside of her day to day role. In addition to all of this, Kelly has been a leader in training, coaching and mentoring many interns, new employees and peers.
