Cooley Group, Inc., a leader in promotional, print and fulfillment solutions for 75 years, has been honored with the Promotional Products Association International (PPAI) Pyramid Gold Award. The PPAI Awards and Recognition Program celebrates creative excellence throughout the promotional products industry.


Since 1958, the PPAI Pyramid Awards have recognized and honored promotional products businesses and helped shine the spotlight on the collaborative business model unique to the industry. Pyramid Award winners were selected by a panel of industry professionals and independent, outside marketing and advertising professionals.


PPAI recognized Cooley Group for its work on the City of Saratoga Springs MONOPOLY Game fundraiser, which is unlike any typical promotional products program. Saratoga Springs landmarks and localisms served as the foundation of the game which transformed a traditional MONOPOLY board into one that was customized for the area, serving as a symbol of community pride. “It was an honor to develop this custom edition for Saratoga Springs. My client was thrilled with the program which raised over $200,000, all going directly to Adirondack Trust Community Fund to support local initiatives”, said Cooley Group Brand Consultant, Jeana Nicotera.


In addition to the Gold Pyramid Award, Cooley Group is also a five-time winner of the Best of Print and Digital Award, recognizing its best-in-class customer service, and has recently been identified as one of the best companies to work for in the industry. Phil Yawman, Cooley Group President stated, “It is always our goal to develop collaborative relationships with our clients and provide outstanding service. Being recognized by industry professionals for doing so is very rewarding.”
