PR Daily Honors Gray Construction with First Place Executive Visibility Award

Gray Construction, a leading engineering, architecture and construction firm, has been awarded first place honors in the “Executive Visibility” category of PR Daily’s 2018 Media Relations Awards. In a very strategic effort, Gray’s communications’ team worked to effectively position the thought leadership of Stephen Gray, president and CEO of Gray Construction, within the manufacturing market and land an interview spot on CNBC’s “Power Lunch.”

“We’re thrilled to receive this award from PR Daily,” said Jill Wilson, vice president of communications and marketing at Gray Construction. “By purposely building strong relationships with our customers, we diligently focus our content marketing strategies around topics that truly resonate with them.”


The campaign included a deliberate, multi-faceted communications strategy involving both traditional and digital elements. While yielding powerful, quantifiable results consisting of increased media and brand exposure from our core audience, the campaign also impacted Gray’s bottom line through amplified lead generation and sales.


PR Daily’s Media Relations awards spotlight companies that truly stand out in their public relations strategies by mastering the delicate balance between powerful storytelling, relationship building, reputation management and more to create an impressive media relations strategy across multiple channels. Other winners include USA Today Network with Diffusion, Aflac with Hill+Knowlton Strategies, LG with Ogilvy, and McDonald’s with BODEN. Visit PR Daily to view all of the 2018 winners.
