LOS ANGELES -- July 19, 2012

Walton Isaacson (WI), an independently held, minority owned, full-service
advertising and marketing agency (waltonisaacson.com), has just been named
“Supplier of the Year” (SOTY) by the Southern California Minority Business
Development Council (scmbdc.org) for an unprecedented third consecutive year.
No other agency has accomplished this feat.

Walton Isaacson’s third straight SOTY honor reinforces the Agency’s commitment
to supporting other Minority Business Enterprises as well as its investment in
the community at large. As a certified Minority Business Enterprise, WI has a
rich history of giving back to the communities while supporting foundations
such as: The Jackie Robinson Foundation, Rodney & Holly Robinson Peete’s
HollyRod Foundation, The Magic Johnson Foundation and the Immigrant Archive
Project, as well as BET’s Internship Program founded by Louis Carr, President
of Media Sales for BET. With a network of corporate partners that include
Unilever, Lexus, Caesars Entertainment Company, White Memorial Medical Center
and Jim Beam Brands, WI has a wide array of channels to continue its work
toward enhancing the communities it serves.

“It is an honor to be recognized by SOTY as the Southern California Minority
Business of The Year for the third consecutive time. Our agency’s commitment
to Minority Business Enterprises (MBEs) is fueled by our belief that this
segment of the business community has had a direct impact on our sustained
success. Part of our organization’s DNA has always been a focus on giving back
to the communities that we serve and to support other MBEs as we continue to
grow so that they too can share in our success,” says Co-Founder Aaron Walton.

partnership with famed NBA superstar/entrepreneurial legend, Earvin “Magic”
