CLEVELAND, OH — The Marble Institute of America (MIA) has received the Golden Thinker Award for Extraordinary Achievement in Media Relations. The Golden Thinker, awarded each year by the North America Precis Syndicate, Inc.

“The number of placements a release has achieved is a great measure of its success,” said Dorothy York, President of NAPS. “The results of your release have been absolutely extraordinary, with 2880 placements. Your success marks you as a leader among some of the very savviest
PR pros.”

Each year, the MIA creates a feature release promoting natural stone. This particular release focused on how consumers favor granite countertops over other countertop materials. “We are honored to receive this prestigious award,” said MIA Executive Vice President Jim Hieb. “I hope MIA members see how these releases benefit them and their businesses.”
