"Recognition is the catalyst that propels us from good, to better. From invested, to committed.

From in, to all in."

The MD Awards is an annual celebration of TPA tribe members who excelled by most consistently living into our core beliefs, and bringing our purpose of #Better to life.

Hosted by our Managing Director, Natalie Maroun, this year’s awards featured three categories:

The We Show Up Award, for exemplifying our core beliefs of WE BELIEVE, WE COMMIT, WE SHOW UP, WE GET SHIT DONE, AND REPEAT in the market.

The Together Award, for living into our core beliefs of Together, Courageously, Respectfully, Joyfully, and Better, for our tribe.

And our pinnacle accolade, the Better Award, for most consistently and impactfully living into our core purpose.

And our 2023 winners are:



Maryke Klawansky

MD’s Commendation:

This award is a tribute to Maryke’s unwavering fortitude and unparalleled work ethic.

Maryke has consistently refused to settle for anything less than excellence, continuously reaching for higher pinnacles of achievement.

Her mantra of "getting up, dressing up, and showing up" is not just a motto; it is a philosophy that inspires us all.

She is not just the face of our business; she is the embodiment of everything we aspire to be, to our clients and to the world.

Maryke, you are not just a colleague; you are family. Your contributions mean more to me than words can express.



Krystle Watkins

MD’s Commendation:

Krystle’s phenomenal courage in stepping up to the plate has left an indelible mark on all of us. Her love for her tribe, her unwavering commitment to our business, and her boundless dedication are nothing short of extraordinary.

She tackles every obstacle with unwavering determination, exuding kindness and an infectious joy that uplifts us all. Her courage has been truly inspiring, and her wholehearted commitment to our shared purpose is the cornerstone of our success.

Krys, you show us, every day, that no ask is too great and no sacrifice is too much when it comes to our collective success.
