The Quirks of Successful Young Marketers

Share this content:

With the announcement of our 2015 40 Under 40 nominees, we're looking back at what made past winners exemplary, and so very interesting.

Every year for the past three years, Direct Marketing News has identified and highlighted top-performing marketers who demonstrate exemplary savvy and finesse in their craft, and whose work helped elevate their business. Each year, we select 40 such marketers and celebrate their accomplishments, on the condition that they've performed extraordinary marketing that furthers their brand, and that they're under the age of 40.

We've assembled another batch of 40 superlative marketers under 40 years of age, and as we prepare to celebrate this prestigious collective of marketing talent at this year's 40 Under 40 Awards Ceremony, I thought it prudent to look back at past 40 Under 40 coverage for a glimpse of what drives these special marketers.

Many—probably most—marketers rightly covet the stature and success of these individuals in their own business endeavors. Well, here are 10 articles that explore the men and women behind the 40 Under 40 plaques of yesteryear, and illustrate the goals, interests, and general mind-state of this caliber of young marketer.
