We’re thrilled to announce that (former) Editor, APEX Media, Katie Sehl has been named the recipient of this year’s Rising Star Award for the 2016 Content Council Pearl Awards.

Recognized as the gold standard in content marketing, the Pearl Awards celebrate excellence in media from around the globe. This year’s competition included a record submission of 87 companies across print, digital and multi-channel platforms.

“It’s deeply flattering to be recognized by The Content Council with the Rising Star Award. The award is shared in full with the entire APEX Media team at Spafax, an exceptional group of professionals from around the world, with whom I have the rare privilege of working with everyday,” said Katie.

Katie’s award comes on the heels of the APEX Daily Experience newsletter taking home “Best Niche E-Newsletter” at the 2016 Digital Nichee Awards in September. Needless to say, it’s been a rewarding few weeks for the APEX Media team.

“Katie’s editorial expertise has helped create an award-winning publication in APEX Experience and her tireless work ethic has set a strong example for her international editorial team.” – Al St. Germain, Spafax

Al St. Germain, our SVP Marketing and Publisher, APEX Media, added: “Katie’s Rising Star Award is a well-deserved honor. Katie’s editorial expertise has helped create an award-winning publication in APEX Experience and her tireless work ethic has set a strong example for her international editorial team. We’re delighted that she has been recognized by her peers.”

This year’s Content Council winners will be honored next month at the annual Pearl Awards Gala, November 16, 2016 at Essex House in New York City. Congrats Katie and the entire APEX Media team at Spafax – shine on!
