Sunday Times Top Brands has opened nominations for the marketing personality of the year award for 2012. “Being an award open to peer and industry voting, the Top Marketing Personality Award allows each of us to celebrate the incredible depth of talent we find in South Africa, and the Sunday Times is very proud to provide this open platform for recognition,” says Trevor Ormerod, general manager advertising sales and strategic communications at Avusa Media.
In only its third year the quality of previous nominees has already made the award one of the most highly-regarded in the industry. Previous winners include Serame Taukobong (MTN’s Chief Marketing Officer), and Enzo Scarcella (Vodacom Managing Executive for Marketing), in 2010 and 2011 respectively.
Nominations for this prestigious title have opened on Avusa Media’s trade site: www.pushprint.co.za/topbrands-2012. Simply enter the name of the person you believe worthy of the title, along with a brief motivation. If a particular brand or marketing campaign has grabbed your attention, simply state which one you rate tops, and the award organisers will source the relevant marketing personality. Nominations close on 20 July 2012.
The Sunday Times Top Marketing Personality will be announced at the Sunday Times Top Brands award ceremony on 2 August 2012 in Sandton.
