The Direct Marketing Association's List & Database Council has selected Brian Kurtz, vice president of marketing at Boardroom Inc., Greenwich, CT, as List Leader of the Year. Kurtz will receive the award at an Aug. 16 banquet at The Sky Club in New York preceding the DMA's List Vision 2000 conference, according to an announcement yesterday. The conference will be held the next day at the Grand Hyatt.

"It's a great honor," Kurtz said. "There is nothing better than being recognized by your peers."

Kurtz began his career at Boardroom Inc. -- which publishes newsletters about business, healthcare and retirement and runs a mail-order book business -- in 1981 as an assistant in its inhouse list management department. In recent years, he has been credited with helping Boardroom achieve yearly revenues of more than $90 million.

In February, Kurtz was inducted into the DMA's Circulation Hall of Fame for his work at Boardroom Inc.

"The circulation award was more of a surprise because I've always seen myself as a list guy," said Kurtz. "I'm very proud of my contributions to the list business."

The List Leader of the Year award is given to a list professional with a minimum of 10 years in the list industry. The recipient must also be active in one or more of the following list-related areas: ethics, education, list practices and standards, privacy issues, postal reform, communication or environmental concerns.
