ATLANTA, GA (November 21, 2019)- Benson Integrated Marketing Solutions, the multifamily industry’s most comprehensive, efficient, and transparent marketing platform, announced today that it was selected as the recipient of a prestigious 2019 MarCom Award. 

In November, MarCom announced the winners for the 2019 international creative competition for marketing and communication professionals.  Over 6,500 entries from throughout the United States, Canada, and 18 other countries were submitted.  Benson’s creative design team, called Limelight, submits a select number of creative services projects to various international design and marketing competitions on behalf of its clients. Greystar’s Branding Campaign for The Arnold, a luxury community along the vibrant East 6th Street Corridor of Austin, TX, was among those submitted and was chosen as a Gold Winner by MarCom.

With over 50 awards for creative excellence, the Benson design team is a team of expert designers, graphic artists, and environmental graphic designers that deliver innovative solutions for the multifamily industry. 

MarCom Awards is an international creative competition that recognizes outstanding achievement by marketing and communication professionals. Entries come from corporate marketing and communication departments, advertising agencies, public relations firms, design shops, production companies, and freelancers. 

MarCom is one of the oldest, largest, and most respected creative competitions in the world.  Winning a MarCom Award is a highly sought-after, peer recognition from the creative industry.  MarCom winners range from huge international creative agencies and Fortune 500 companies to individual creative professionals. 

Winners are selected from over 300 categories in print, web, video, and strategic communications. A list of all Platinum and Gold winners as well as the submissions, can be found on the MarCom Awards website at

The competition is administered and judged by the Association of Marketing and Communication Professionals (AMCP). The international organization consists of several thousand creative professionals. The Association oversees awards and recognition programs, provides judges, and sets standards for excellence.

As part of its mission, AMCP fosters and supports the efforts of creative professionals who contribute their unique talents to public service and charitable organizations. Over the past few years, AMCP’s Advisory Board has allocated over $250,000 in grants and contributions to support philanthropic efforts. That money was used for marketing materials for homeless shelters, orphanages, day camps, community theaters and art centers; and for programs for the elderly and disabled; childcare; and educational endeavors for the underprivileged.

“Congratulations to Greystar, Benson, and The Arnold property team on this exciting award,” said Brian Benson, CEO of Benson Integrated Marketing Solutions. “We’re honored to be recognized by MarCom and to partner with innovative clients at Greystar like Tiffany Walters, Senior Director of Marketing- Central West, and Katya Watson, Senior Regional Property Manager- Real Estate.  Our company is grateful for the talent and vision of Senior Graphic Designer, Ali MacGillivary, who was instrumental in driving the creativity and execution on this branding project and many others across our portfolio.”
