Scottsdale, AZ (PRWEB) May 28, 2008
With the sophisticated, urban setting of the Phoenix Art Museum as a backdrop, Corcoran Associates added to their awards during the annual American Marketing Association (AMA) dinner on Wednesday, May 21.
This is an important award to add to the firm's credentials since it honors work on an integrated multicultural marketing campaign in a highly competitive industry. "To that end, Corcoran Associates' Scottsdale office took on an exciting challenge when they signed on our group," states Joseph Pep Katcher, President, CRUZ del Sol Tequila (CRUZ Tequila). "Because CRUZ Tequila is led by a successful business team, we have high expectations along with dynamic schedules that often cross time zones and cultures. Despite that, Corcoran's team has kept us focused on our goal of redefining the premium tequila market while resolving the behind the scenes issues so we could concentrate on the successful launch of our award-winning spirit."
"Examples of 'the behind the scene' activities include Corcoran's ability to broaden our companies visibility literally over night and to a global audience," adds Todd Nelson, Vice President, CRUZ Tequila. "Their public relations team has done this while working closely with us to tie our progress with current events and by leveraging technology. Specifically, today's technology which made it possible for our news to reach over 212,000 new potential customers within the Fortune 500 and in our targeted markets during the 4th Quarter of 2007. These results along with all of our collective efforts, have helped CRUZ tequila take our vision and turn it into a reality."
Bridging the gap from reality to awards, the American Marketing Association Phoenix Chapter is a professional association for individuals and organizations involved in the practice, teaching, and study of marketing.
