ICE’s Jocelyn Philbook Named Finalist in 2013 Stevie Awards for Women in Business

ICE’s Jocelyn Philbook Named Finalist in 2013 Stevie Awards for Women in Business

If you hear us humming “Superstition,” it’s because we are all feeling a little Stevie wonderful. The big news at ICE Worldwide is that our founder and managing partner, Jocelyn Philbrook, was named a finalist for the 2013 Stevie Awards for Women in Business. And, we think that totally rocks.

The Stevie Awards recognize exemplary businesses and business leaders from around the world each year. This year marks the 10th year that the Stevie Awards for Women in Business will identify the most outstanding women executives and entrepreneurs from around the world. On November 8, 2013, we will find out if Jocelyn will bring home the gold, silver or bronze for the ICE team. Any of these is a great honor and a validation of all the hard work the entire ICE team puts into making ICE Worldwide a world-class marketing and advertising agency.

It isn’t often that you get to work at a company that feels less like work and more like fun. There are a few things that make ICE just that company and why we think we were recognized:

  • We love technology and we only work with tech companies. For us, dinner conversation around acronyms like VDI, SIP, BYOD, BI is good stuff.
  • Our clients are some of the most interesting organizations in the world. It is a growing roster and one that makes us proud. (Even though we can’t share their names.)
  • Jocelyn was named to the Global Telecoms Business Top 40 Under 40 in 2009
  • ICE won consecutive American Graphic Design Awards in 2010 and 2011
  • ICE carries certifications as a Federal Women’s Business Enterprise (WBE) and is registered with the Massachusetts State Office of Minority and Women Business Assistance (SOMWBA) and in New Hampshire as a Disadvantaged Business Enterprise (DBE)
  • Our main office in Portsmouth, NH, means we’re slowly making our way through every eatery in Portsmouth for Friday lunch on ICE.
  • ICE offers unlimited personal days. The company’s view is vacation time is for vacation and rebuilding creative energy not doctor’s appointments.
  • We support non-profit activities through team volunteerism or company resources. Giving back feels really good.
  • There are other things like a dog friendly office, team building pedicures, and unlimited snacks that make ICE a great place to be, but we can’t share all our secrets.

Jocelyn would be the first to tell you that winning a Stevie is a team effort, and we do have a pretty special team. It’s rare, for example, to find a business in the Science, Engineering, Technology and Mathematics (STEM) market where women represent the majority. We’ve bucked trends by choosing Portsmouth over Boston (for the start-up vibe of the city as much as the affordable water views). And we’ve worked hard to build a team without boundaries. If you visited us, you would notice our open office environment. Also, you won’t find any glass ceilings at ICE. We believe those who are empowered – succeed.  ICE promotes that through an aggressive mentoring and internship program that has inspired many young women to date.

Okay, so that’s probably enough back-patting to last us the rest of the year. Now to get back to the business of winning awards for our customers. In the meantime, stay tuned for the final Stevie Awards announcements on November 8th and join us in celebrating all of the women-led businesses who make the world a better place—and a better place to work.
