The Greater Ottawa Home Builders Association (GOHBA) sales and marketing community celebrated excellence with Italian spirit at the annual Sammy Awards on Nov. 5.
Richcraft Homes received the Grand Sammy award, reflecting the company’s success in winning five category-based awards, including Best Print Ad – Builder, Best Builder Sales Centre, Best Builder Design Centre, Best Builder Brochure and Best Marketing Campaign.
Comedian James Cunningham entertained the 170 guests at the Centurion Event Centre with some humor, as teams competed in challenging word charade games to reach the finalist competition.
Ottawa Citizen advertising representative Keith Campbell took the top prize – a trip to Italy. Coincidentally, The Citizen was the event’s main sponsor.
Other significant awards included Minto Communities, which received recognition as the Most Environmentally Friendly Builder and Jamie Stansel of Stanco Mechanical, who the judges selected as Industry Partner of the Year.
