Spain’s Instituto para la Excelencia Profesional has recognized the influence of Mayte González-Gil, CEO of Poweraxle, our partner in Madrid, by presenting her with the Gold Star Award for her work in the communication industry. Only four Gold Stars were awarded in 2016 – the others were for Medicine, New Technologies, and the Arts.
Endorsed by the Government of Madrid and the Spanish Ministry of Industry, Energy & Tourism, Gold Stars are awarded for professional innovation that promotes economic and social development, focusing especially on Continuous Professional Development and Total Quality Management.
Previous Gold Star winners include Luis del Olmo (journalist); Manuel Santana (tennis champion), Vicente del Bosque (World Cup winning football coach) and Padre Ángel, the priest who founded the global NGO Mensajeros de la Paz (Messengers of Peace).
“It is a truly great honor to receive the Gold Star”, Mayte says. “Our working philosophy expresses our love of the work we do and our passionate attention to detail”.
Congratulations to French/West/Vaughan on winning the Grand Prize as Communications Agency of the Year.
