Crawford United Corporation Announces Reed Award Win by Data Genomix

CLEVELAND, Feb. 28, 2020 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- - Data Genomix LLC, an operating company owned by Crawford United Corporation (CRAWA), today announced that the company won a prestigious Reed Award for its social media advertising work in a ballot initiative campaign.

The political marketing publication Campaigns & Elections hosted the 2020 Reed Awards in Atlanta, Georgia on February 20 and selected Data Genomix among thousands of entries for its sophisticated targeting on social media.  The Data Genomix “Topplr” software platform, which has been leveraged by hundreds of campaigns in over 25 states, won for Best Use of Online Targeting for a Ballot Initiative.  The award recognized the company’s work supporting the passage of the Lake County Transportation (LakeTran) Levy, which won in November 2019 with 58% of the vote.  The company was also a repeat finalist for Most Innovative Product of the Year, in addition to being shortlisted for Most Innovative Poli-Tech Startup and Best Use of Online Targeting for a Mayoral Campaign.

"Winning a Reed Award is extraordinarily difficult. Thousands of entries compete, but very few make the
cut,” said Shane D'Aprile, Co-Publisher of Campaigns & Elections. “When you encounter a Reed Award winner you know one thing for certain, they produce work that's head and shoulders above the competition.”
