Like most professionals, there’s more to a marketer than their mastery of their craft. Marketers are cool, interesting people, with a variety of talents and hobbies that may not scream “top marketing professional,” but that certainly add dimension to what they bring to their role. This year’s 40 Under 40 Award winners roaster was packed with such marketers.
During the Direct Marketing News 2015 40 Under 40 Awards, we caught up with a few of the winners and asked them to reveal their hidden hobbies or abilities, their secret identities. Here’s what they had to say:
Jessica Hawthorne-Castro, CEO and chairman at Hawthorne Direct
Pedro L. Rodriguez, director of integrated marketing at People en Español
Yasmeen Coning, VP and head of marketing at Genesis Media
Amanda Todorovich, director of content marketing at Cleveland Clinic
Joel Moore, director of strategic leadership at Force 3
