DSPolitical Recognized for ‘Best Use of Targeting’
Founder & CEO Named As One of Industry’s ’40 Under 40′
SAN JUAN, PR – Thursday evening, DSPolitical – the nation’s leading voter targeted digital ad network for Democrats and progressives – was honored at the American Association of Political Consultant’s (AAPC) 2016 Annual Pollie Awards. The company was recognized with “Best Use of Targeting” while its co-founder and CEO Jim Walsh was named to the annual “40 under 40” list of top political consultants under the age of 40 in the United States.
“We’re humbled by the recognition our work received this year. Putting the power of our unrivaled data and near universal reach into the hands of Democratic campaigns and progressive causes has transformed the political landscape,” said Walsh. He continued, “it is an honor to have that work recognized and on a personal note, it is humbling to be named to a list of such respected political professionals.”
DSPolitical’s work on behalf of Compassion & Choices’ “Gov. Brown Sign that Bill!” initiative received the “Best Use of Targeting” recognition.
According to the AAPC, “the Pollie Awards are the most prized and sought-after awards in the political communications and public affairs industries. Whether submitted by large consulting companies or individual consultants, this is the one arena where every piece of work is considered equal in competing for honors of excellence.”
It was a busy week for Walsh. After receiving the “40 under 40” award in Puerto Rico, he was off to San Francisco for AdExchanger’s Programmatic I/O conference where he participated in the “Programmatic Politics” panel discussion with a conservative advertising executive and Donald Trump’s digital advisor. The trio discussed, “the current state of political advertising in digital and where programmatic is fitting in – and what’s left to conquer.”
