40 Under 40 Awards


The Direct Marketing News 40 Under 40 awards celebrates exceptional achievement in marketing before the age of 40—and we're looking for the next crop of exceptional.

Past 40 Under 40 winners represent the best of the best; young marketers who have helped significantly grow their companies; wowed their clients with creative or strategic plans; and influenced the industry in numerous ways—from enhancing the core elements of direct marketing, to advancing measurement and guiding their company and clients on mastering new technologies.

Winners will be featured in a splashy spread in the November 2015 print issue of Direct Marketing News and invited to a swank awards ceremony in September 2015 in NYC.

Nominees must be:

  • Under 40 years old as of September 30, 2015
  • A client-side marketer; that is, a senior marketing executive (e.g., director, VP, SVP, CMO) at any type of organization that does not sell to marketers
  • Or a senior executive (e.g., president, CEO, marketing VP, CMO) at a marketing services company; for example, a creative agency, marketing services firm, data or list company, or marketing-technology firm
