Garver wins national SMPS awards
During the recent national conference of the Society for Marketing Professional Services (SMPS), Garver won awards in both the Promotional Campaign-Mixed Media and Advertising-Mixed Media categories in the 2022 Marketing Communications Awards program.
Garver’s nationally recognized Communications Team created the “Beyond the Design Campaign” and collaborated with the company’s Water and Wastewater Team to bring to life the “Behind-the-Scenes Operators” initiative, both of which helped Garver connect with clients, communities, and employees across the country.
“The recognition by SMPS is not only a testament to the hard work and alignment of both teams, but to the commitment of our employees as a whole."

Garver’s experts recognize that the work they do day-in and day-out is essential to helping communities thrive. That’s why the firm’s Communications and Water and Wastewater teams partnered to execute the “Behind-the-Scenes Operators” initiative.
“The recognition by SMPS is not only a testament to the hard work and alignment of both teams, but to the commitment of our employees as a whole,” said Garver Chief Operating Officer Michael Graves. “Both of these campaigns showcase one of the things we do really well at Garver, and that is connect with our clients and the communities in which we serve.”
In Spring 2021, Garver’s Water and Wastewater Team came up with an idea to recognize the tireless efforts of water and wastewater operators from across the country. The “Behind-the-Scenes Operators” initiative told the stories of eight operators who continued to provide access to clean water and keep our lakes and rivers clean, even during a global pandemic. With that concept in place, the teams worked in collaboration to capture information for web articles, social media posts, and video interviews.
The awards were announced during SMPS’ Marketing Communications Awards presentation. The annual competition is the longest-standing, most prestigious awards program recognizing excellence in marketing and communications by professional services firms in the design and building industries.
