Fairfax, VA (September 26, 2013) – Gershman, Brickner & Bratton, Inc. (GBB) proved last week that its expertise reaches beyond solid waste consulting to include communications and marketing, as it received a Thoth Award, from the Public Relations Society of America – National Capital Chapter (PRSA-NCC) on September 18 during the 45 Annual Thoth Gala in Washington, DC. The Thoth Award is the highest honor in public relations and communications that a company can receive from the PRSA-NCC. GBB won for its latest corporate brochure.

An experienced panel of judges selected GBB’s brochure after reviewing numerous entries from public relations, non-profit, and corporate organizations located in the Washington, D.C. area.

GBB’s winning brochure (featured below) showcases the firm’s expertise in new waste management technologies, and introduces its new team of officers as part of the company’s current leadership transition. Developed with assistance from Atwater Communications and MillerCox Design, the new brochure emphasizes the “why” behind individual GBB leaders’ involvement in the solid waste industry, instead of just the “what,” and it was this distinction, combined with its superior design elements, that set it apart from the competition.

GBB Corporate Brochure“This piece conveys the passion we all have for the environment and our work in a way we’ve never done before, and it is an honor to see it recognized by experts in the field,” noted Bob Brickner (featured in photo), GBB Executive Vice President and Co-Founder, who accepted the award last Wednesday on behalf of GBB.
