Normally, I'm not the type of person to tout myself--I tend to do that for my clients--but I am so excited, I had to share this with you. Here's the text of a press release about an award I won. Enjoy!
Andrea C. Carrero, president of Word Technologies Inc., based in Glen Mills, PA, is the recipient of a 2008 Apex Award for Publication Excellence. Carrero won the award for her work for the annual conference for a nonprofit association, which included the full range of campaign communications and materials such as conference website, member communications, e-newsletters, articles, public relations campaigns, direct marketing materials, press releases and more.
Approximately 4,500 entries were submitted for the award, which were conferred in July 2008.
“I am thrilled to be the recipient of such a prestigious communications award,” said Carrero, a professional with more than 20 years experience in business and marketing communication, journalism, public relations and technical documentation. “Writing is not a visual medium in and of itself and expertise and talent frequently is not noticed or rewarded. It’s exciting to have had a panel of experts review my work and deem it worthy of an award.”
Carrero has a strong background in marketing, journalism and creative writing, which she uses to write and produce strategic marketing plans and materials, as well as public relations tools, as part of her company’s service offerings. Her experience includes writing and editing for mass media such as daily and weekly newspapers as well as radio—and in public relations and publications for large nonprofit organizations.
In addition, Carrero’s experience includes more than 15 years in Information Technology (IT), where she has specialized in technical communication and training in a wide variety of vertical industries, including business-to-business and business-to-consumer companies with offices and customers worldwide.
