NEW YORK, NY – The National Sales and Marketing Council of the National Association of Home Builders (NAHB) has presented The Marketing Directors, Inc. with Gold Awards in three categories including Sales Manager of the Year, Sales Person of the Year and Rookie Sales Person of the Year.

The prestigious awards were presented during the NAHB’s National Sales and Marketing Council’s 28th annual Nationals’SM awards gala, which was held on January 20th at Caesar’s Palace in Las Vegas, Nevada.

The Marketing Directors’ Martin Brady earned Sales Manager of the Year, Richard Sackman won Sales Person of the Year and Cheryl Byrne was awarded Rookie Sales Person of the Year; all three chosen by a diverse panel of industry professionals from across the country who selected the winners from more than 800 entries.

The spotlight was also on Adrienne Albert as the company CEO was inducted into the National Sales and Marketing Council’s Hall of Fame as a Legend of Residential Marketing — the first woman to ever receive the prestigious honor.

“We are so proud of Martin, Richard and Cheryl, three outstanding members of The Marketing Directors team who work tirelessly to provide our clients with superior service and exceptional results,” says Adrienne Albert, CEO of The Marketing Directors, Inc., a Manhattan-based firm that specializes in the marketing and sales of new-construction, high-end residential real estate development throughout the country.

“These outstanding individuals are certainly well-deserving of the accolades and we’re delighted that they have been recognized by their peers for their excellence in sales.”

The NationalsSM – which originated as the MIRM Awards in 1982 – recognizes superior new home sales and marketing achievements. The nation’s largest competition, The NationalsSM award ceremony is held each year a part of the National Association of Home Builders (NAHB) annual Builders’ Show (IBS).
