Bonnier Corp.’s Boating magazine was named Brand of the Year at the company’s second annual Bonnier Excellence Awards.

Fourteen employees and teams received honors at an awards ceremony earlier this week at the Dr. Phillips Center for the Performing Arts in Orlando, Fla.

“I want to thank all Bonnier Corp. employees for their hard work this year and congratulate all the winners of the 2015 Bonnier Excellence Awards,” CEO Dave Freygang said in a statement. “We appreciate everyone’s commitment and creativity to their brands and I could not be more proud to work with everyone here at Bonnier.”

Boating, led by publisher John McEver and editor-in-chief Kevin Falvey, finished 2014 20 percent above its contribution target for the year and 60 percent higher than its contribution in 2013.

On the digital audience side, the brand has had a 53 percent year-over-year increase in monthly unique visitors and a 47 percent gain in page views.

Todd Detwiler, design director of Popular Science, was named Designer of the Year. Detwiler spearheaded a 2014 redesign of Popular Science that included a fresh logo, new paper stock and a complete overhaul of the magazine’s presentation. He was also an adviser on the redesign of the new popsci.com.
