Gray Wins First Place for GrayWay Newsletter at the 2013 SMPS Awards Gala

Gray received first place in the external newsletter category at the Society for Marketing Professional Services (SMPS) Awards Gala, held August 2 in Orlando, Fla.

Gray’s external newsletter, the GrayWay, is published six times a year and is distributed to some 12,000 business leaders across the globe. Rather than content focusing on news pertaining to Gray, the GrayWay tackles issues facing business and industry today, distinguishing this publication from typical corporate newsletters. The publication also features a clean, contemporary design that is pleasing to readers.


“Receiving this award from our peers in marketing communications is truly an honor,” said Jill Wilson, vice president, communication and marketing for Gray. “Our team works diligently to create interesting and insightful GrayWay issues, and we look forward to taking this publication to the next level.”



The SMPS National Marketing Communications Awards Program is the longest-standing, most prestigious awards competition that recognizes excellence in marketing communications by professional services firms in the design and building industry. This competition is open to both SMPS members and nonmembers in the U.S. and internationally.
