ARCHITECT Wins Prestigious Grand Neal Award

WASHINGTON, D.C. April 6, 2018 – Hanley Wood, the premier information, media, event, and strategic marketing services company serving the residential, design, and commercial construction industries, took home the Grand Neal Award for ARCHITECT magazine’s “The Climate is Changing. So Must Architecture” Best Subject-Related package at the 64th Annual Jesse H. Neal National Business Journalism Awards. The Grand Neal Award honors the most outstanding entry from among winners in all categories.

The award was presented by Bill McDowell, Vice President and Editorial Director, MTG Media Group and Vice Chair of the Neal Award’s judge’s selection committee. McDowell noted, “With strong prose and telling photography, ARCHITECT offers wise counsel from practitioners and insurers. It shows how to do well while doing good, even as it calls out its profession for far too few firms realizing carbon-neutral performance.” McDowell added, “ARCHITECT is truly deserving of the 2018 Grand Neal award. The brand’s comprehensive reporting, strong graphics and highly relevant content make it a powerful and significant contributor to its field.”

“We are truly honored to be recognized by Connectiv with this prestigious award and stand amongst previous winners,” said Peter Goldstone, CEO of Hanley Wood. “Receiving this recognition is a testament to the dedication of Hanley Wood’s editors and designers to deliver best-in-class service journalism and thought leadership to our audiences and customers.”
