The American Marketing Association of Tampa Bay hosted their 2nd annual Marketer of the Year awards last night. What a memorable night, mingling with so many amazing marketers from the Tampa Bay area and seeing their award winning campaigns! It was like the Oscars of Marketing! As the only Tampa Bay results-based marketing awards, the competition honored marketing campaigns for their excellence and successful, measureable results.
Attendees were also treated to the grand reveal of the new AMA national and local chapter branding. This is a major rebranding initiative for all 70 chapters across the nation to position AMA as the most relevant force and voice shaping marketing around the world. You may have noticed the new branding on this email and you will continue to see more of it as we fully deploy.
Ten Marketer of the Year category winners were honored from the esteemed group of finalists. From those category winners, the highest scoring campaign was awarded the Grand Marketer of the Year award. Congratulations to Cisco, 2016 Grand Marketer of the Year, presented last night by Colleen Chappell, President & CEO of ChappellRoberts, the 2015 winner!
The Tampa Bay Lightning was inducted into the AMA Tampa Bay Hall of Fame presented by Mark Irby, VP of Marketing for Publix, the 2015 honoree.
Congratulations also to the 2016 Educator of the Year, Kerry Walsh, University of South Florida and our AMA Volunteer of the Year, Alison Clinton. Here’s the complete list of our distinguished awardees.
