The Hive named Finest on the Emerald Coast

Updated: May 14

With just a single year of business under their belts, the ladies at the Hive Creative Consulting took home their first community-voted accolade at the 2018 Finest of the Emerald Coast Awards Ceremony. The Hive stood among two other great local agencies in the top three but took home the first place award.

“It’s truly incredible that, within our first year of business, we received a community-driven award,” said Ali Weil. “We’re so honored to accept this, and we can’t thank those who support us enough.”

Finest on the Emerald Coast is an annual contest run by the Northwest Florida Daily News where community members are encouraged to nominate and vote for their favorite businesses in various categories.

Since its inception about a year ago, the Hive has become one of the fastest growing one-stop, synergy-fueled creative services and marketing firms along the Emerald Coast. It’s served over 40 different clients, providing a variety of services from social media marketing and event management to business development and brand identification and empowerment.

The six-woman operation has also developed community events-- Contractors Connect, a networking event for those in the construction industry, and The Hunting and Fishing Widows Society, a female-empowerment group meant to give Emerald Coast ladies an outlet-- in their short tenure since opening the doors.

“We do a bit of everything for our clients and community,” said Weil.

In addition to the Hive winning its category, some of its clients were celebrated at the awards ceremony, too. Specialty Roofers, one of the Hive’s first clients, won first place in the Around the House: Roofing category, and Dixielectricar was among the finalists for the Electric, Golf & Utility Vehicles category.
