"The Marketer of the Year award is an exciting opportunity for brand marketers," said Chris McGuire, president-elect of AMA Chicago. "We're looking to honor a marketer who has overcome a business obstacle, or turned something around for their brand, or dealt with a lot of challenges and still came out ahead. Chicago is home to incredible brands, and AMA Chicago is thrilled to honor an outstanding professional in our field."

The honoree will be recognized for their strategy, results, vision, and leadership in marketing. Examples include marketers who have evolved a brand and changed how consumers view them; marketers who made headlines and built engagement and awareness of their brand; marketers whose specific campaigns yielded remarkable results.

"This is a great opportunity for agencies to nominate our clients," said McGuire, who is also Director of Client Growth and Engagement at McGuffin Creative Group, Inc. "These types of honors matter and offer credibility. The Marketer of the Year award is the perfect way to honor and give back to our clients who are doing the day-to-day work of leading a brand."
