Hart Employee Recognized Nationally



MAUMEE, Ohio, Aug. 14, 2017 – Esther Fabian, Senior Account Executive at Hart, is being recognized nationally as one of the 100 people who make advertising great.

The American Association of Advertising Agencies, the leading trade association representing the marketing communications agency business, is recognizing 100 people who make advertising great in celebration of 100 years in business. The list recognizes individuals who go above and beyond to make a difference in the advertising industry, both in creating great work and inspiring others to achieve greatness.

“We’re so proud that Esther has earned this national recognition along with such a distinguished group of leaders in the advertising industry,” said Mike Hart, president/CEO at Hart. “Esther is truly an inspiration to all of us here at Hart. She has made a positive impact on the organization by leading great work and through her optimistic attitude and infectious laugh. Beyond being passionate about producing good work, she is diligent, self-motivated and unafraid to tackle any new challenge.”

Fabian has overcome many obstacles in her life, both personally and professionally. Despite going through two breast cancer diagnoses, treatments and recoveries, she says her biggest life obstacle has been trying to balance being a good mom and excelling in her career.

“I’m so lucky to work at a place that values its people and promotes a fun and collaborative work environment. I was surprised and honored that a coworker would nominate me and that I actually made the list,” Fabian said. “I come to work every day wanting to do good work and give my best effort. I credit the rest of my success to working with a strong team.”

Fabian was nominated by a coworker, JoAnna Sorosiak, assistant account executive. Sorosiak said, “After everything Esther has been through, she has never once let her spirits down. She’s passionate about her work and always helping make the business better. Esther is a personal mentor for me and someone I can trust for life advice. She deserved to be recognized as an advertising great, even in a sea of agency founders and CEOs.”

All honorees were nominated by peers, associates and colleagues through an online submission process. The final 100 were selected by a diverse panel of 13 industry players who represent a range of disciplines and experience.

Fabian is being featured in an issue of Adweek, as well as being acknowledged at the 4A’s 100th Anniversary Gala on Sept. 27 in New York City.

The list of all the honorees who made the 100 People Who Make Advertising Great can be found on the 4A’s website.
