Stevie Award Silver -Rachel Durkan

Paradigm Marketing & Design is proud to announce that our founder and president, Rachel Durkan, was awarded a Silver Stevie Award for Business Development Executive of the Year at the 16th Annual Stevie® Awards for Sales and Customer Service. This is Rachel’s second Stevie Award; she was awarded a Bronze Stevie in 2018 which recognized women in business.

The Stevie Awards for Sales & Customer Service are open to all organizations worldwide, and recognize the achievements of sales, customer service, and call center professionals. The Stevie® Awards are the world’s premier business awards.  They were created in 2002 to honor and generate public recognition of the achievements and positive contributions of organizations and working professionals worldwide.  In short order the Stevie has become one of the world’s most coveted prizes.

Rachel was nominated for her outstanding leadership and business acumen. Under her leadership in 2020 when most businesses were struggling to stay afloat, Rachel was able to position Paradigm as leader in strategic marketing as an answer to COVID. Her ability to adjust quickly to the ever-changing business environment gave the firm seven-figure success with profit and growth ratios more than three times the industry averages. In the last two years alone, at a time when many businesses struggled to survive, Paradigm more than doubled its employee count and grew revenue by 150%.

As President, Durkan is responsible for the development of the agency’s long-term growth strategy and works each day toward cultivating a culture of entrepreneurship and ensuring that her team can uphold the company’s values: taking a vested interest in client success; supporting team members in all things; and striving for excellence in everything they do.

Over the last several years, Paradigm has earned several awards and distinctions, most notably the 2021 Excellence Member of the Year award, given by the New Jersey Business and Industry Association. Rachel has also been recognized personally as NJBIZ 40 Under 40 honoree, 2020 Enterprising Women of the Year awardee as well as being recognized as a role model at the 2017 Tribute to Women honoree by the Boy Scouts of America; a Top 25 Leading Women Entrepreneur for 2017; and a Top 40 Under 40 Marketing/Communications Professional by the NJ Ad Club.

“I am incredibly proud of the award-winning team we have built here at Paradigm,” Durkan says. “Our commitment to excellence speaks for itself, and I couldn’t be prouder. I have always believed in being a partner to my client, and my team has truly embraced that. We take our clients’ successes and challenges personally and generate amazing results to help our clients flourish. And it’s just as important to me that my team members are as happy as my clients. I want them to enjoy what they do so that the pride they bring to their work is carried over into our collective success.”

Outside of Paradigm, Rachel’s positive influence knows no bounds. She serves as a highly regarded mentor to fellow women business owners who are just starting out – helping them grow their businesses at no cost to them – and is currently mentoring a young woman in the process of founding her own public relations firm. Rachel is also a member of the Morris County Chamber of Commerce and the Women Presidents’ Organization (WPO), an organization of women leaders who support one another personally and provide each other with professional guidance.

Prior to founding Paradigm, Durkan got her start as a Professional Sales and Marketing Assistant for the pharmaceutical giant Pfizer and later worked as the Marketing and Communications Manager for Bergen County’s United Way, a $12 million-per-year non-profit organization.
