Congratulations to Kimberly and Traton Homes

The 31st annual OBIE Awards were the icing on the cake of a great year for Traton Homes’ Marketing Manager Kelly Garwood. Garwood took home the honor of Marketing Director of the Year and a gold OBIE.

This year, Garwood developed a new blog for the premiere Atlanta home builder, The blog won the Best E-Marketing, Best Interactive Tool gold OBIE Award. In addition, Garwood also helped Traton tap into social networking as she established Facebook, LinkedIn, Twitter and YouTube accounts. In her spare time, she also helped facilitate the builder’s philanthropic efforts.

Above all, Garwood was instrumental in opening several new Traton Homes communities, and did so often on small budgets and tight deadlines.

Traton’s founder Bill Poston was especially impressed with Garwood’s ability to communicate Traton’s excellence through effective social media and public relations on a limited budget. Poston said, “Kimberly brings a special passion to every aspect of her work at Traton.”

Garwood’s colleagues at Traton Homes say she is a talented lady who is wonderful to work alongside. She possesses a unique ability to see the "big picture" and still keep up with managing daily tasks, and her advice is frequently sought by her colleagues. She has won Traton Homes’ Dunning Award, an award given annually to the employee who has a consistently positive attitude and plays a large role in making the company successful.
