SMPS Houston Chapter held their annual Design Awards Gala on Friday, April 30th at City Centre’s Red Oak Ballroom. This evening offered Houston area A/E/C firms the opportunity to showcase marketing achievements. The chapter also recognized excellence in marketing achievement by marketing professionals in the design and building industry.
This year, Haynes Whaley Associates received the Member Firm of the Year award for its commitment to marketing excellence, as well as long-time dedication to SMPS Houston through sponsorships, volunteerism, and continuing education speakers.
Derick Thompson, Haynes Whaley engineer and business developer, received the Rising Star award for his dedication to the chapter very early in his SMPS membership — for participation as a leader engaged in organizing member events and for his consistent contributions on the Programs and Membership committees. Congratulations, Derick!
