Jonathan Deacon, who is from the Newport Business School and is Chair of the Wales Board of The Institute, praised the success of the awards.
The chairman of panel of judges said: “Following the success of the first Canmol Awards, we had high expectations for Canmol 2009 and we were not disappointed.
“There was a tremendous buzz around the awards and an immense sense of pride from the 15 shortlisted companies. It was a very difficult task selecting the winners from a wealth of excellent campaigns, however five entries stood out in particular for their creative, innovative and strategic thinking, as well as their ability to achieve brilliant results often with reduced budgets.”
Catnic impressed the judges for the relaunch of its lintel range which resulted in a rise of customer enquiries.Follow @CaerphillyObsvr
