Hytrol Wins 11 Awards at 2023 American Advertising Awards 

JONESBORO, Ark.—Hytrol Conveyor Company was among those recognized at the 2023 American Advertising Awards (ADDY) Gala on Friday, February 17. The event was held at the Cooper Alumni Center and hosted by the Northeast Arkansas chapter of the American Advertising Federation (AAF).  

Hytrol’s marketing team took home 11 awards by the end of the evening. The company received five Gold ADDYs, five Silver ADDYs and the Judges’ Choice Award which was selected from all contest submissions. Submissions included commercials, online videos, posters, and art installations published by the team in 2022.

“This kind of recognition for the team is well-earned,” said Marketing Manager Paige Phillips. “At the end of the day, they do valuable work with the goal of supporting Hytrol with professional and effective marketing. I am proud to be associated with a team of such tremendous professionals, and proud to be at a company whose leadership trusts and supports us.” 

Marketing professionals, agencies, and students from around the region submit advertising elements to be evaluated by judges. Judging for the awards is done by four marketing industry experts, selected by the AAF, from outside the marketplace who have different backgrounds and areas of expertise within the marketing field. 

Trystan Dorton, Multimedia Specialist, said, “The quality of work from our whole team has been outstanding this year, and I attribute most of that to our leadership and the team dynamic.” Dorton said the array of work the Hytrol marketing team has produced over the past year shows how the strengths of each team member work together to create quality pieces.  

Brand Facilitator Shelby Madden said, “Last year, Hytrol celebrated 75 years in business. Our team worked incredibly hard to honor our history in new and innovative ways, and I believe we achieved that goal successfully. We produced great work the way we always do: together.” 

The Hytrol Marketing Department is led by Marketing Manager Paige Phillips and also includes Marketing Facilitator Aaron Reddick, Public Relations Specialist Robyn Garrett, Marketing Coordinator Jami Pate, and Corporate Communication Specialist David Wofford.
