Circle of One Marketing is thrilled to have been named the winner of the 11th Annual Thelma Gibson Award of Excellence for Corporation of the Year during their Board Installation Luncheon on Thursday, January 21, 2010. 

The Circle of One team was up against some heavy competition, as Kozyak Tropin Throckmorton Attorneys at Law and the University of Miami were the other finalists in the category. Having formerly been a finalist in the prestigious “Corporate” category in 2008, this is the first win for Circle of One Marketing.

The Thelma Gibson Awards of Excellence has a long history, starting with, of course, the illustrious Thelma Gibson when she founded Miami-Dade County’s first women’s chamber in 1984. In 1999 the Women’s Chamber established the Thelma Gibson Awards of Excellence to honor its founder. Each year, the award honors an individual and a corporation that has excelled in promoting leadership, excellence and business development among corporate and professional women.

“As a working mother, it is such an honor to be recognized by The Women’s Chamber, especially in the category of Corporation of the Year! We have put our hearts and souls into building this company and this award is a testament to the power of the collective passion for what we do,” said Suzan McDowell, President & CEO, Circle of One Marketing. “To have even been nominated in the company of other great corporations like The University of Miami and Kozyak Tropin Throckmorton Attorneys Law was amazing, but this win is further validation that we are on the right track,” McDowell continued.

Circle of One Marketing, a full-service marketing, advertising and public relations agency comprised of a strategic team of experienced, well-connected and creative individuals is led by President and CEO, Suzan McDowell. Since its inception in 2001, “The Circle” team has stood out in everything they do, living by the company mantra: creative_resourceful_diverse. Blending personalities, nationalities, races and creeds, McDowell has assembled a stand-out team that accurately reflects the Miami melting pot.
