In a muggy hotel banquet room two years ago, Steve Eisner stood at a podium clutching the validation of 30 years of toil: a golden statuette in the shape of four letter A's. It was an O'Toole, given by the American Association of Advertising Agencies, to the most creative, mid-size firm in America. Whatever those in the audience believed, Eisner took the award as the realization of his dream to transform a prominent but entirely local advertising agency into a powerhouse capable of competing with Madison Avenue.
