DMA Honors Stefanie Pont as List Leader of the Year
The Direct Marketing Association's List and Database Council named DM veteran Stefanie Pont as its List Leader of the Year.
Ms. Pont is managing partner at Pont Media Direct, Norwalk, CT. She will be presented with the honor Aug. 15 at an awards dinner at New York's Marriot Marquis during the DMA's List Vision show.
"Stefanie's leadership role in many member related areas of the DMA and other DM organizations speaks volumes to the significance of her contribution to this community," said Ann Zeller, vice president of membership and customer services at the DMA, New York.
"Her continued and focused commitment to List Vision has contributed not only to the success of this event, but also directly to the success of the DMA and to the success of any list community member who participates in the List and Database Council and at its events," she said.
The key criterion for List Leader nomination is 10-plus years in the list industry. Teaching, mentoring, active involvement in furthering the list industry's business and ethical goals are all factors to be considered.
Ms. Pont launched her own company, Pont Media Direct, in 2004 after spending 20 years in the list business. She was vice president and corporate media director at Euro RSCG-Brann North America before becoming an entrepreneur.
Ms. Pont also served as chair of the DMA from 1999-2003. She created the List/Database Young Professionals Series, and chaired List Vision in 1997 and in 2001.
