Doron J. Fetman, the Founder and CEO of Eff Creative Group, an award-winning Inc. 500 company that designs, develops, and markets groundbreaking digital and consumer products, has been recognized by the prestigious 15th Annual International Business Awards as its Executive of the Year in the Advertising, Marketing and Public Relations category. He received the Gold Stevie Award, which is the organization’s highest honor. Earlier this year, Doron was also invited to serve as Chair for the IBA’s Creative and Marketing judging categories.

A serial entrepreneur at heart, Doron has built Eff Creative Group into a vertically integrated agency where all services stem from creativity with a strategy-driven approach. The company’s most recent project is Ticker Tocker, a financial platform powered by a global network of trading Leaders launching this fall. Eff Creative Group’s 24-hour operations include its Times Square, New York headquarters and the newly launched Singapore office, Eff Creative Pte, Ltd.

“An international business award for Executive of the Year means the world to me (no pun intended),” said Fetman. “I’m honored and humbled to be recognized by such an elite group of judges and the International Business Awards. I am a proud American and the son of immigrants who worked really hard to help me get to this point. I am just driving on the road that they have paved, which makes this award in honor of them.”

In addition to Doron’s recognition as Executive of the Year, Eff Creative Group, as a company, received Stevie Awards across three other categories:

  • Fastest-Growing Company of the Year in the U.S.A. and Canada
  • Company of the Year in Advertising, Marketing and PR
  • Most Innovative Company of the Year

Doron’s co-founder and Eff Creative Group’s Chief Creative Officer, Toby Hassan Fishman, was also recognized as Woman of the Year.

Stevie Award winners were determined by the average scores of more than 270 executives worldwide who participated on 12 juries.

“This year’s Stevie Award winners in the IBAs are the most distinguished group of winners we’ve had yet,” said Michael Gallagher, president and founder of the Stevie Awards. “We raised the minimum average score from the judges required to qualify as a Stevie winner, so 2018 winners should be especially proud of their achievements.  We look forward to presenting their Stevies to them in London on October 20, and to telling their stories over the coming year through Stevie Awards media.”
