DALLAS – (September 29, 2014) – Freeman, the leading global partner for integrated marketing solutions for live engagements, was presented with the Outstanding Directors Award from the Dallas Business Journal. The award recognizes directors, boards and board committees that have demonstrated the leadership and best practices that help grow the business and position the company as a leader in their respective industries.

“To receive the Outstanding Directors Award and be recognized within the Dallas business community is a tremendous honor,” said Joe Popolo, CEO of Freeman. “The award reflects the tireless efforts of our Board of Directors to guide the company to continued success.”

Freeman stood out because it is a privately held, family-owned firm that is run like a public company. The judges were also impressed with Freeman’s standards of corporate governance, diverse board membership, integrity and values, as well as the board’s high level of involvement in the strategic dialogue of the company.

“In today’s competitive environment, high-performing directors have never been more important,” said Tracy Merzi, publisher of the Dallas Business Journal. “The mission of the Outstanding Directors Awards is to recognize those who honor their fiduciary responsibility and actively work behind the scenes of public, private and nonprofit institutions in North Texas.”

Freeman’s Board of Directors is the first private board to be recognized in the Dallas Business Journal’s Outstanding Directors Awards.
