Celebrating great marketers making a real difference

Senior global and regional marketers can have a huge impact in multiple ways.

Whether it’s creating effective purpose-driven campaigns, restructuring the way their internal and external teams work together or playing an industry leadership role, for example around furthering the Diversity & Inclusion agenda, great marketers make a real difference.

Since 2017, the WFA Global Marketer of the Year Award has been seeking to identify the person in a global or regional role who has, over the last 12 months, made the most impact on their company, our industry and the reputation of marketing among consumers.

In 2021, the Global Marketer of the Year Award went to Conny Braams, Conny Braams, Chief Digital & Commercial Officer, Unilever.
