CODESM Wins 2024 Outstanding Small Business Innovation Award

McAllen, TX – April 2024 – CODESM is honored to have received the 2024 Outstanding Small Business Award at the recent Governor’s Small Business Summit in McAllen. Awarded in recognition of our innovative Marketing-as-a-Service model, it is a highlight of our efforts to deliver tailored marketing solutions to our clients. We are grateful to have been nominated by our esteemed client the Pharr Economic Development Corporation (EDC).

Commitment to Innovation

The Outstanding Small Business Award recognizes small businesses that are making a positive impact and fostering growth and innovation in South Texas. The Pharr EDC nominated us based on our deep commitment to supporting the marketing needs of the vibrant businesses in McAllen, Pharr, and beyond.

“The Pharr EDC’s nomination for this prestigious award highlights our shared commitment to innovation and excellence,” says Oriol Zertuche, founder and CEO of CODESM. “I founded CODESM to support the growth of businesses in Pharr, the RGV, and the country. Receiving the Pharr EDC’s nomination, and this award, reflect the success we are having in reaching this goal.”

Oriol was present to receive the award at the Governor’s Small Business Summit in April.
