It was such an amazing day on Friday, May 15, 2014. Surrounded by friends and family, Jamie Dunham received the Nashville American Advertising Federation Silver Medal Award at a luncheon held by the AAF. No, as several have joked, there is no gold medal. The Silver Medal award is the highest honor bestowed by the group and represents creativity and contributions to her company, the advertising profession, and to the community.
The Nashville award has been given to recipients annually since 1959. Jamie is one of only five women to have received the honor. Included in the past recipients are many of Jamie’s close friends and associates – Jeffrey Buntin, Sr., Jeffrey Buntin, Jr., S. A. Habib, Art Johnsen, David Bohan, Bill Holley, Jack Pentzer, John Guider, Linda Sherman and Jim Sherraden.
The honor topped her 25 year career in Nashville. Jamie has worked in the Nashville advertising community since 1989. She has spent much of her time helping brands craft their own story. Her roles have included Chief Planning Officer at BOHAN Advertising|Marketing, Executive Vice President, Management Partner at the Buntin Group, and currently, owner/president of Brand Wise. Previous to Nashville, she worked in the Houston advertising market.
