Royal Oak, Mich. – September 5, 2018 – Airfoil Group, an independent technology-focused PR and marketing communications firm, announced today that it has been selected as a finalist for a PR News Platinum Award in the category of Re-branding/Repositioning for its work with Village Green. The agency’s nominated program, “Airfoil Group and Village Green Reimagining Distinctive Living,” centered around a multifaceted research study which spoke to the Detroit-based property management company’s three defined audiences of associates, renters and institutional investors.

The award from PR News, which serves the communications, public relations and marketing community within corporations, agencies, nonprofits, and governmental organizations, recognizes an agency’s efforts to effectively reinvent a brand, allowing its client to become highly recognized and well-received by its target audience.

The distinction is one of several awards Airfoil has earned in recent years for its ability to develop relevant and attention-grabbing content that speaks to the market needs for technology-focused clients.

“We are honored to be recognized as a Platinum PR Awards finalist, showcasing our agency’s unique ability to partner with our clients to execute strategic, integrated communications and marketing programs,” said Airfoil CEO Lisa Vallee-Smith. “We are proud of the results of this campaign. It serves as a compelling case study, validating our disciplined and creative approach to brand development and messaging.”

By guiding Village Green’s new leadership through a series of data-based audits and studies through the campaign, Airfoil has been able to assist its client in developing new corporate messaging, boost corporate morale and tangibly drive both leads and sales.

“Successful and award-winning work requires a strong partnership, and that is exactly what we have with our client Village Green,” said Airfoil Vice President Jeff Lutz, who served as a lead on the project. “A sound strategy based on smart insights, together with bold creative and sharp execution, have enabled us to achieve this industry-wide attention and honor.”

The PR News Platinum Awards celebrate the ingenuity and leadership behind the year's most outstanding communications initiatives from across the globe. Platinum PR Award winners set industry benchmarks for excellence across all areas of PR.

Winners and honorable mentions will be celebrated at an awards luncheon on Friday, September 21, 2018, at the Grand Hyatt in New York City.
