The ‘Marketeer of the Year Award’ celebrated its premiere on 1st March 2018 in Zurich. A brilliant personality from the Swiss marketing sector shall be honoured with the newly-created prize every year. Sponsorship for the award is offered by
Swiss Marketing, Admeira, and the Serviceplan Group Switzerland.
The field of marketing is under pressure. In many companies it is perceived not as an investment but a part of cost management. However, the truly brilliant success stories are written by those companies who use their creativity to take chances; who have the courage to carve out new paths; and who put ground-breaking ideas into practice in the digital age. The ‘Marketeer of the Year Award’ is dedicated to those outstanding individuals who work outside of their comfort zone, promote the creation of something new, and generate clear added value for their company, its employees, and its consumers.
The newly-created prize is clearly distinct from the existing Swiss Marketing Awards in that it honours individuals as opposed to entire projects and/or companies. A prestigious jury will announce the first winner of the ‘Marketeer of the Year’ award in March 2018, after a multi-stage examination and decision process. The members of the jury form a strong, expert panel, with representatives from the fields of agency, media, professional associations, businesses and science.
