Hanley Wood, the premier information, media, event, and strategic marketing services company serving the residential, commercial design and construction industries, announced today that BUILDER magazine was selected as 2014 Magazine of the Year by the American Society of Business Publication Editors. BUILDER was selected in the “$3 million and over” division, based on revenue. The award was presented during the ASBPE Awards dinner, held last Friday, July 25, in conjunction with the 2014 ASBPE National Conference in Chicago.
“It is truly an honor for BUILDER – the flagship media brand in our portfolio – to have been selected for this prestigious honor,” noted Peter Goldstone, CEO of Hanley Wood. “We are surrounded by excellent peers and competitors in the B2B media industry, and to have BUILDER chosen for this award by those same peers is both humbling and rewarding.”
The Magazine of the Year Award is presented by ASPBE to two publications based on revenue classifications. Recipients are selected through a judging process based on selected criteria, including:
- quality of writing, reporting and editing;
- value and usefulness to the reader;
- editorial organization;
- interaction with readers; and
- layout and design.
“All of us on the BUILDER team are thrilled to have received this award,” said John McManus, Editorial Director for Hanley Wood’s Residential Construction Group. “This awesome tribute affirms that we’ve been given the gift of an amazing team, with whom we now go into action, into more powerful encounters with our users and partners and friends.”
BUILDER was selected for the 2014 Magazine of the Year for excellent coverage in its August, September, and October 2013 issues, which included features on labor shortages, construction defects, and the Builder’s Choice Custom Home Design Awards. BUILDER previously won the award in 2007 in the “large circulation” category.
