Bravo Group Awarded for Communications Excellence

Bravo Group’s Pittsburgh office received four awards for its work in the communications industry at the 33rd Annual Golden Triangle Awards last Thursday evening, Sept. 27.
Bravo Group was recognized for its demonstration of communication skills and its work in creative communications during the 2011 calendar year. It was the first time that Bravo received such recognition since the firm opened its Pittsburgh office in September of 2010.
Bill Miller was at the ceremony to accept Bravo’s awards with other members of the firm’s staff.
“Bravo has always been one of the most creative firms in Pennsylvania,” said Miller about his firm’s recognition in Pittsburgh. “Now the Pittsburgh communications community is beginning to see our work and recognize us as a growing presence in the marketplace.”
The International Association of Business Communicator’s (IABC) Pittsburgh Chapter hosted Thursday’s awards ceremony at the DoubleTree Hotel in downtown Pittsburgh. The IABC sought not only to recognize Pittsburgh’s communications professionals, but to award them for their work on specific projects completed during the 2011 calendar year.
Bravo received awards for four of its projects developed on behalf of the Pennsylvania Steel Alliance, the Pennsylvania Association of Housing and Redevelopment Agencies (PAHRA), EverPower Wind Holdings Inc., and Peoples Natural Gas.
Bravo submitted its works at the end of 2011. Other IABC regional chapters reviewed all submissions from Pittsburgh and determined the honorees.
Bill Spinner played a significant role in all four of Bravo’s award-winning projects.
It’s always nice to have Bravo’s creative work recognized for its quality and effectiveness,” said Spinner. “It’s the product of our entire team.”
Kim Whetsell, Matt Crocco, Danielle Gross, Topper Ray, and Sean Connolly were also in attendance to accept the awards on behalf of Bravo at Thursday night’s ceremony.
“For a relatively new firm in the region, it’s exciting to be recognized for the work we’ve been providing to our clients and to begin to build a name for Bravo in the region,” said Whetsell. “We’ve only begun to tap into this market and I’m looking forward to seeing what we can accomplished for the rest of 2012 and beyond.”
