Most Creative Marketing
At the 2012 Tower of Excellence Awards event for the Corporate Housing Provider’s Association, Nomad Temporary Housing was one of two firms that won the coveted "Most Creative Marketing" award. Nomad earned the award due to its revolutionary, unbiased temporary apartment model that combines the unbiased choice of 70,000 temporary apartments with the full service of a single company. Further consideration for the award was given for Nomad’s clean website design, innovative option delivery presentations, and overall sales success.
Gavan James, Nomad Temporary Housing Founder and Chief Executive Officer, said “This award is the result of a combined effort of the Nomad team, Jacob Tyler Creative Group of San Diego, CA, and numerous large users of temporary housing who contributed to the formation of our business model. After our first year of business, the marketing efforts of Nomad resulted in capturing the business of over 20 international relocation management companies, and over 300 Fortune 2000 clients."
Heather James, Nomad Partner and Vice President of Business Development, was in attendance with Mr. James to receive this award. “It was thrilling to be recognized and exciting to win,” adds Heather. “Our customers are benefitting every day from our delivery model of unbiased choices, which have aggregated the industry.” Karl Thuge, Nomad’s third Partner and Executive Vice President, adds “Nomad has created a new way for clients to gain access to a fragmented industry. We are honored to win."
