April 24, 2013

TORONTO, ON – The University of Toronto’s Rotman School of Management has been awarded a Sitecore Site of the Year award for its newly revamped web presence.

“Our new website reflects the design-focused thinking and commitment to innovation that has made Rotman one of the world’s best business schools for years,” said Pym Buitenhuis, Director of Marketing. “We are thrilled with the site and honoured that Sitecore chose to recognize us this way.”

The site was the result of a “true partnership” between Rotman and its agency partner, Nonlinear Digital, a division of non-linear creations.

“Nonlinear was instrumental in us getting to where we are today,” Buitenhuis continued. “From helping us map our overall objectives right through to executing on the site build and setting us up for ongoing success, this has been a tremendous partnership.”

“Rotman is one of our most valued partners,” said Nonlinear Digital President Allison Simpkins. “The team there challenged us to help them build a site that reflects the school’s unique identity and focus on innovation in a way that drives real business value. I think we’ve succeeded in a big way.”

This is Nonlinear’s fourth Sitecore Site of the Year award.
