Sierra Pacific Earns 2016 Gold Brand Builder Award
in the Best Content Marketing Campaign Category

Business Update series reflects company’s creative, transparent communication.

WASHINGTON, D.C. (September 20, 2016) – Sierra Pacific Windows has received a 2016 Gold Brand Builder Award in the Best Content Marketing Campaign category from Hanley Wood, the premier information, media, event, and strategic marketing services company serving the residential and commercial, design and construction industries. The award was presented September 13, 2016 in Chicago during the Hanley Wood Foundations Conference.

Sierra Pacific Director of Marketing April Lucas said, “This recognition of the Sierra Pacific Business Update series is especially meaningful for those of us involved in creating it, including our agency Fresh Roast Marketing. While artfully executed – including its format, content, natural copy, design, and consistency of delivery -- you have to step back and look at what the series has accomplished. Our objective was to galvanize trust and excitement between our dealer network and owners during a period of significant change. The Business Update series created an environment in which our dealers said they couldn’t wait for the next big announcement. The series is executed in the true nature of our company: open, honest, and transparent communication.”

The Brand Builder Awards recognize the most innovative and effective marketing campaigns throughout the residential and commercial design and construction industries. Companies selected for recognition have executed campaigns that generate sales, motivate buying behavior and inspire customer loyalty. More than 70 companies submitted entries in 10 categories, ranging from traditional advertising campaigns to social and mobile marketing strategies to channel marketing programs.
