The MarCom Awards recognizes outstanding achievement by creative professionals involved in the concept, direction, design and production of marketing and communication materials and programs.

Mr. Harari was honored for Excellence in Copywriting for his “Let’s Have Lunch” E-Blast, as well as Excellence in Video Advertising for his commercial, “RemodelersUniversity.com Coming Soon Trailer,” with both entries taking home the Gold in their respective categories.
Winning the MarCom is tremendous achievement symbolized by the intricately detailed MarCom statuette, which graces the trophy cases of some of the top business and communication firms in the world.
“What an honor. My mind is blown,” said award winner Mark Harari. “It’s amazing to stand with companies like Fox Home Entertainment, Nationwide Insurance and John Hancock Financial Services.” Harari continued, “I owe a great deal to our amazing [Remodelers Advantage Roundtables] members. Not only are they the inspiration behind my work, but it was because of them that I entered the competition. I had never considered submitting my work to marketing competitions; much less the prestigious MarCom Awards. But many of our members urged me to do just that. I’m truly glad they did.”
