Mavericks of Marketing

Young. Driven. Unstoppable.

The Direct Marketing News 40 Under 40 Awards celebrates exceptional achievement in marketing before the age of 40—and we’ve found a stellar group of exceptional for 2015.

DMN‘s 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 rethinking data-driven marketing strategies, to advancing measurement, to guiding their company and clients on mastering new technologies.

Those who nominated these leaders did so with enthusiasm. Consider:

“Coltrane changed the archetype of how a marketer should think, look, and act.”

“Danielle is 100% passion backed by ferocious tenacity and a hunger for knowledge…. I wish I could clone her.”

“Cecile is an exemplary leader.”

And the praise rightly goes on.
