Peggy Wilson, founder and CEO of Wilson Creative Group (WCG), a full-service marketing, advertising and public relations agency in Naples, was named Marketing Director of the Year at the 26th annual Sand Dollar Awards ceremony presented by the Collier Building Industry Association’s Sales and Marketing Council.

The Sand Dollar Awards are the highest accolades given by the CBIA and are presented each year to member professionals who have demonstrated building, design and marketing excellence. The organization’s selection committee focused on the range of creative diversity as well as the Wilson’s unmatched ability to combine creativity and effectiveness as key reasons for the win. CBIA also attributed the success of Wilson’s work to her dedication to creativity and an ongoing commitment to her ad agency’s central strategy— smart ideas and expert design.

“I am both humbled and honored to receive this award,” said Peggy Wilson. “At WCG, we exist to make our clients’ brands matter. This award is a true testament to the creativity and talent across our company, and to the bravery of our clients who entrust their brands to us each and every day.”

In selecting Wilson, CBIA cited the agency’s growth with clients as well as its continued growth in reputation and capabilities using digital and traditional advertising formats.

“What we believe makes Peggy Wilson an award winning marketing director, is not just her ability to lead and teach others, but her innate talent,” reports Kathy Curatolo, CBIA executive director. “She continues to be a force within the digital space, and has developed a well-rounded expertise in all media channels.”

A native of Florida, Wilson began her career as an art director before rising to creative director and agency founder. Throughout her 25-year career, she has lead creative development for more than 60 brands including The Quarry, West Bay Club, Naples Square and Seaglass at Bonita Bay.

The win tops off a remarkable year for WCG as the company earned an additional 12 Sand Dollar Awards and two Excel Awards.
