Marlin McDaniel Wins Granicus' Innovator of the Year Award

Granicus, the premier provider of government experience cloud tools, recently announced the winners of its 13th annual Digital Government Awards.

Team Jeffco's Marlin McDaniel was honored with the Innovator of the Year Award. McDaniel founded and manages several programs for Jeffco's Innovation Team. He leads a team of innovation analysts and interns who spearhead process and technology improvements that result in measurable outcomes for county departments and their customers. Marlin's projects have saved millions of dollars, improved service quality, and created efficiencies that help deliver an exceptional digital customer experience to residents. 

In the face of unprecedented adversity, this year’s Granicus award winners have risen to the challenges presented by ongoing uncertainties as communities across North America return to normal operations. These winners have embraced modern technologies that drive awareness of community programs, improve resident experiences, transform outdated processes, and inspire civic action.

“The 2022 Granicus Digital Government Award winners represent some of the finest examples of agencies and staff dedicated to serving and engaging their communities in inspiring, innovative, and effective ways,” said Granicus Chief Customer Officer Gabriele “G” Masili. “These organizations, teams, and individuals are leaders in the digital government space, and we are thrilled to recognize their hard work.”
