Florida Atlantic University's athletics marketing team was recognized for excellence when the National Association of Collegiate Marketing Administrators (NACMA) announced and recognized its 2015-16 national award winners, during NACMA's 25th Annual Convention at an awards ceremony on June 14th in Dallas, Texas. "Thank You Owl Nation," created and produced by Ryan Moran, FAU's athletics marketing video coordinator and social media director, earned a gold medal in the video segment category for Group I which consists of all FBS Division I schools. The University of Illinois and University of Buffalo earned silver and bronze medals, respectively, in the category.
Initiated in 2003, the NACMA Best of Awards program honors outstanding achievement in marketing and promotions. Awards are presented in 13 categories, with each category divided into three groups based upon school size and conference affiliations to promote fairness. Nearly 900 entries were received for the 2015-16 year.
"Thanks to the efforts of Ryan and his staff of student interns over the past year, we've seen an explosion in our social media engagement for athletics," said Tina Dechausay, FAU's assistant athletics director for strategic communications and marketing. "Much of that success is attributed to the very creative and entertaining videos that Ryan produces for our department every day. We are so excited and proud that Ryan's talents have been recognized."
