Royal Oak, Mich. – November 2, 2018 – Airfoil Communications, an independent technology-focused PR and marketing communications firm, was honored with an Award of Merit in the Communication Management/Change Communication category at the International Association of Business Communicators (IABC) Detroit Renaissance Awards ceremony. The award-winning campaign was developed on behalf of property management company Village Green.

For its campaign, the Airfoil team developed a brand repositioning plan to help Village Green align its business goals with its marketing objectives during a transitional time in the company. The communications campaign included a research program which spoke to Village Green’s employees and stakeholders, in addition to a national study addressing renter trends.

By guiding Village Green’s new leadership through a series of data-based audits and studies through the campaign, Airfoil helped its client bolster its social channels, develop new corporate messaging, boost corporate morale and tangibly drive both leads and sales.

“We are honored to be recognized by such a distinguished organization as IABC Detroit,” said Airfoil CEO Lisa Vallee-Smith. “Most importantly, we are thrilled to have supported Village Green in achieving their business and repositioning objectives.”
