Vendi Advertising was named the Best Workplace in Wisconsin at the 2023 MARKETPLACE Governor’s Awards. The Governor’s Awards recognize Wisconsin businesses owned by minorities, women and service-disabled veterans, and their advocates.

The Best Workplace Award is given to a business with a company culture that thrives in the face of adversity and fosters employee growth and advancement at all levels. It also recognizes a business where people love to work and sets the standard for excellence. “Vendi is built on a culture of kindness, creativity and collaboration. We feel people do their best work when they feel seen and supported as their authentic selves. To have Vendi recognized as the Best Workplace in the state is a great honor and a testament to our team who works hard every day to do great work,” said Julie Haas, Vendi client services and strategy principal.

“We also just completed a major renovation of our historic offices, capturing our team’s work, ideas and personalities into the new space. We were able to bring our culture to life for our employees,” said agency growth principal Sam Przywojski. “It’s exciting to be chosen for this award and statewide recognition.”

Vendi is a national-award-winning, full-service, women-owned and independent brand, marketing and web agency. It’s currently celebrating its 20th year in business.
