The Marketing Hall of Fame was established by the AMA New York as the only award of its kind to celebrate brilliance in marketing across all disciplines and industries. A rigorously democratic process is used each year to elect leaders who are making outstanding contributions to marketing and inspiring a new generation of marketers.
The Marketing Hall of Fame continues to evolve to reflect our changing world. It includes exceptionally diverse segments of the marketing community in the nomination, voting and selection of inductees. Selection criteria look at how marketers impact business results, raise the profile of the profession, move marketing forward through breakthrough approaches, promote sustainability, and spearhead diversity, equity and inclusion.
“The Marketing Hall of Fame is back, renewed and refreshed,” says Joanna Seddon, Marketing Hall of Fame co-chair and Founder, Presciant Brand Consultancy. “We are thrilled to honor such a truly outstanding set of marketing innovators.”
The selection process began last September with an open call for nominations, drawing in over 300 nominees in our most diverse field ever. AMA New York’s Marketing Hall of Fame Committee evaluated the nominations against the selection criteria and developed a shortlist of the 50 highest-qualified nominees.
The Marketing Hall of Fame Academy, an exclusive body of 300 senior marketers, agency executives, researchers and academics hand-selected by the committee and AMA New York Board of Directors, voted on the short list to determine the finalists. A final Panel of Judges, made up of past inductees and top executives from the leading marketing associations and organizations, then selected the four 2022 inductees.
“After two years since our last live ceremony as a result of COVID precautions, we are back with a roar this year with four stellar inductees and a focus on diversity and inclusion,” said Robert Kahn, Marketing Hall of Fame committee co-chair, AMA New York past president and partner at Want Branding.
