GRB Website Wins Best of the Web Award
Every year the RBJ recognizes Rochester’s best business websites. Winning websites are selected by a panel of judges, with awards presented in 11 categories. At this morning's awards ceremony, GRB won "Best of the Web" in the banking/finance category! Read the RBJ article here. Photos after the jump.
The judges complimented our website's clean design and intuitive navigation, and especially liked that we included real people, giving it a "hometown" feel.
GRB's ad agency, Mason Selkowitz Marketing (MSM), invited me to sit at their table, so I was lucky to share the moment with the great team that made our new website possible. Tim Mason, MSM's CEO, was one of the award presenters. Some cell phone pictures from the event (official ones from the RBJ forthcoming):

MSM was also a winner! They received the award for Best Web Design Firm, a well deserved honor. They are also a client of ours, and it's been a pleasure to work with them on our website as well as GRB's general branding.
With the MSM team. From L to R: Chris Markham, Jim Dennis, Mary DeMarco, Tim Mason, and Terri Cubiotti.
I'd also like to mention another GRB client, Capstone Information Technologies, who won the Digital Rochester Business Transformation Award. Congrats to all the winners today!
