     It is with great pleasure that the American Advertising Federation-Houston announces that the 2012 recipient of the Trailblazer Award is Martha F. Turner, President and CEO of Martha Turner Properties, a billion dollar, Houston-based independent residential real estate company.  

     The Trailblazer Award was established in 1997 by the American Advertising Federation-Houston to recognize business leaders who have built Houston companies through effective advertising, sound marketing, and corporate citizenship. Through their marketing, these “Trailblazers” have enhanced their companies' images and the City of Houston’s reputation.

     The Trailblazer Gala brings together an audience of influential media, business, and advertising professionals to honor an individual who personifies the spirit of the Trailblazer and to celebrate that person’s energy, ingenuity, imagination, and vision. Sponsoring the Trailblazer Gala supports the work of the AAF-Houston and its educational initiatives, student conference, internships and scholarship program.
