Minneapolis, May 17, 2013 – MVP Marketing + Design, a Minneapolis-based digital marketing and communications firm serving clients coast to coast, is pleased to announce that it has won the Communicator Awards’ Silver Award of Distinction on behalf of the Huron Capital Partners’ website. Huron Capital Partners is one of the nation’s leading operationally-focused private equity firms investing in lower middle-market companies and is located in Detroit, Michigan.
The Communicator Awards is the leading international awards program recognizing big ideas in marketing and communications. Founded nearly two decades ago, The Communicator Awards receives over 6,000 entries from companies and agencies of all sizes, making it one of the largest award competitions of its kind in the world.
MVP redesigned Huron’s site with a new layout featuring direct access to information for key constituents. It employs a variety of symbolic home page banners which reinforce Huron’s proprietary vision of leadership, distinguishing the firm from its competitors. A secure investor login area as well as provision for video, news updates and a calendar of speaking engagements further engages site users and provides responsive two-way communication.
According to Gretchen Perkins, who manages Huron’s business development and investment sourcing activities and oversaw the project together with partner Christopher Sheeren, “Thanks to MVP, we will proudly display the Communicator Awards logo on our most awesome website”; Added Sheeren on a somewhat lighter note, while referencing that Huron, itself, was the recent recipient of Crain’s Dealmaker of the Year Award for 2012, “We won our award BECAUSE OF our new web site.”
