The time to nominate top-performing marketing and sales professionals in southeastern Michigan for the Marketing & Sales Executives of Detroit’s (MSED) coveted Platinum Awards is running out. MSED Platinum Award nominations are currently open until the quickly approaching deadline of Sept. 1.
According to Dave Harries, chairman for the 2013 MSED Gala and president of Spartan Marketing Services, the Platinum Awards serve as a celebration of the area’s top marketing and sales professionals with recognition from their peers.
“The Platinum Awards program is a great opportunity for individuals and teams to be recognized for the difference they’ve made for their companies,” said Harries. “This event offers the opportunity for professionals to acknowledge outstanding employees and peers for their dedication, hard work and great performances in marketing and sales.”
Our 2013 Platinum Award winners will be honored at MSED’s 20th annual Black-Tie Gala on Oct. 16 at the Roostertail in Detroit. The awards recognize work which led to generating new business and/or cost savings from Jan. 1, 2012 through June 1, 2013. Nominees do not have to be MSED members.
The award nomination form can be downloaded through the MSED website at www.msedetroit.org. The completed nomination along with any additional information about the nominee should be emailed to email@example.com. Nominations must be received by Sept. 1. There is no cost to submit a nomination.
Nominees will be evaluated by MSED judges based on their achievements, using creative problem-solving methods, reaching or exceeding company goals, impacting a business or industry and exhibiting exemplary teamwork or leadership as an individual, including distinguishing oneself from the competition.
Also at this year’s gala, Andra Rush, president and CEO, The Rush Group, will be the recipient of MSED’s Trailblazer Award.
