Integrity Marketing Group has announced that co-founder and CEO Bryan W. Adams (pictured above) has won a 2022 “Best CEO for Diversity” award from Comparably, an organization that recognizes top-ranked CEOs and companies.
Comparably’s “Best CEOs for Diversity” list is derived from 15 million ratings across nearly 70,000 companies. It is unique compared to other awards because it is based on anonymous feedback from Integrity’s nearly 6,000 employees, the company said.
“I am honored to receive this award because it reinforces and validates our ongoing efforts to build a culture that puts people first in everything we do,” Adams said. “We work with incredible people who understand that diverse voices lead to better decision-making and greater innovation.
“Integrity is an organization that proactively seeks and creates opportunities to celebrate and activate our core values of integrity, respect, family, service and partnership. We are constantly working to make Integrity one of the best places in the country for talented people to build exceptional careers.”
Integrity offers every eligible employee an ownership stake in the company through its Integrity Employee Ownership Plan. The company also provides many employee-focused events throughout the year, including women’s month and Diwali and Juneteenth celebrations, among others.

“As a leader, he is passionate about creating an environment that includes the unique perspectives and potential of all Integrity team members, and he consistently demonstrates this commitment not only in word, but in action.”
“Bryan is incredibly well-deserving of this award. I am continuously impressed by the lengths he will go to build a strong employee culture,” said Steve Young, chairman of Integrity’s board of directors. “His knowledge of the industry and how his employees fit into its larger picture have shaped his vision.
“By putting his team and his people first, Bryan has created a culture that supports and invigorates Integrity’s mission to serve the life, wealth and health needs of more Americans. His efforts are paving the way for other companies to establish best practices that will surely become the industry standard.”
