Scot Owyen, a sales manager for Genie Industries, has been awarded the Silver Communicator Award by the International Academy of the Visual Arts for his original blues song “Genie Blue” in the audio category of inspirational recording. The title of the song is a reference to the company’s aerial lifts.
“This is such an honor and thrill for me,” says Owyen. “Presenting this song started off as simply a fun and wild way to wrap up a meeting, but it has blossomed into something much bigger. The song really encapsulates the way we try to have fun at Genie – it’s another way to communicate what type of company we are.”
