Nominations Open For 2019 Marketer of the Year, INSIDE Public Accounting Again Sponsors Top Honor for Association for Accounting Marketing

INSIDE Public Accounting (IPA) is seeking nominations for the Association for Accounting Marketing’s (AAM) 2019 Marketer of the Year award. Nominations will be accepted through Feb. 25.

The annual award, presented at AAM’s Summit, recognizes a marketing professional who has demonstrated exemplary performance in the profession of accounting firm marketing. To be eligible, nominees must have held a senior-level marketing position in an accounting firm for at least three years, although not necessarily at the same firm.

All nominations should be submitted online no later than Feb. 25. Nominations are not anonymous, and self-nominations are welcome. Previous nominees are encouraged to participate as well. All nominees will be required to complete an online application no later than March 15. Additional details will be outlined once a nomination form has been received.

“Accounting firm marketers are well positioned to bring a new way of thinking to the profession,” says IPA publisher Kelly Platt. “Sponsoring the most prestigious award in accounting marketing is our opportunity to recognize a true leader who is driving their firm forward.”

The nominees will be ranked by an anonymous panel of judges on accomplishments, strategic thinking, financial impact, tactical development, collaboration, business development, analytics and technology, and leadership within the firm and community.

“The AAM Marketer of the Year nominees are always trendsetters in the industry, and we expect no different from this year’s group,” says AAM president Craig Browning, director of marketing and personnel at Alexandria, Va.-based KWC CPAs. “We are anxiously awaiting what new visions our peers have for the industry, thus we encourage everyone to participate.”

The 2019 Marketer of the Year award will be presented by IPA at AAM’s Summit, set for June 11-13 at the MGM Grand in Las Vegas. The Summit is held in partnership with the AICPA ENGAGE conference, June 9-13.

Past award winners include Nicole Gantz of Dubuque, Iowa-based Honkamp Kruger & Co. in 2018, Laura Kucera of New York-based Citrin Cooperman in 2017, Rhonda Maraziti of Princeton, N.J.-based Withum in 2016, Eric Majchrzak, of Tucson, Ariz.-based BeachFleischman in 2015, and Randy Mowat of Calgary, Alberta-based MNP in 2014.
