Nominations Open for American Marketing Association Chicago's 2023 'Marketer of the Year' Award

Award recognizes marketing professionals leading their brands forward.

Chicagoland marketing professionals are encouraged to apply for the 2023 Marketer of the Year award presented by AMA Chicago, the largest professional chapter in the American Marketing Association's North American network. 

Launched in 2022, the award recognizes the amazing talent in Chicago's marketing industry. While nominees must be based in the Chicagoland area, their employer does not need to be local. Nominees' current responsibilities must focus on the branding, marketing, and communications aspects of their company's brand. 

"Our goal is to showcase professionals demonstrating innovation, creativity, and strategic thinking," said Leslie Marshall, president of AMA Chicago. "The Marketer of the Year award celebrates the best of the best in the industry and those who have overcome business obstacles, turned things around for their brand, or dealt with challenges and emerged victoriously."

Meghan Hurley, VP of Brand for Claire's, was named the 2022 Marketer of the Year. The award was presented during the chapter's annual CMO Forum last fall. 

The 2023 Marketer of the Year 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.
