CPPA Honors Regional Award Recipients at 15th Annual Peake Awards
The Chesapeake Promotional Products Association (CPPA) recently honored regional performers at the annual Peake Awards Ceremony, sponsored by J Charles Crystalworks, at the BWI Airport Marriott in Linthicum Heights on Jan 26, 2022.
Each year, CPPA proudly presents the Peake Awards to honor excellence and creativity in our association and industry. The Peake Award Event honors recipients in nine categories in addition to any Excellence In Promotions (EIP) Campaigns submitted. The EIP awards are designed to recognize campaigns that feature excellence in the practical application of promotional items.
“The Peake Awards has become a signature event for CPPA," said Cliff Quicksell, Jr., MAS+, CPPA Board president. "It gives us the opportunity to recognize excellence in the region and celebrate those who advance the industry in which we work. It is important to take pause and recognize the individuals that serve our region so diligently. The Peake Awards gives us the opportunity to do just that, as well as thank them for their commitment to the industry. I hope the 2022 recipients take pride in being the best in the business.”
In addition to the annual performance awards, this year’s ceremony, hosted by emcee Murray Siegel of Towel Specialties, honored both Dana Geiger with The Premier Group and Cheryl Hokanson with Brand Boosters by inducting them into the CPPA Hall of Fame. This high honor recognizes individuals that make an outstanding and lasting contribution to the regional association as well as to the promotional products industry.
