"In 1994, Ogilvy asked Steve to join the agency in a newly created role: the ultimate "Brand Steward" for the IBM global account. While leading IBM's advertising renaissance and global brand renewal, Steve played a key role with other Ogilvy clients including American Express, Kodak, Motorola, Dove, Cisco and SAP, in addition to participating in many new business development efforts. These contributions earned him awards and recognition for the company. In 2002 Ogilvy was named AdAge's Agency of the Year. "
