It’s out: GMR’s list of 40 of the brightest marketing professionals under the age of 40 in the Middle East
The first of its kind, GMR’s list of 40 honorees brings to the limelight professionals from the marketing communications sphere that are change-agents across different sectors — from IT and telecom to retail, FMCG, food and beverages, oil and gas, automobiles, to media and entertainment and banking and finance.
Marketing, today, has evolved much beyond Philip Kotler’s 4Ps to increasingly focus on data and technology. That’s why this list looks not only at clients, but also technology professionals who are marketing whizzes in their own right as they enable clients to channel their marketing efforts into business results.
How we did it
We compiled this list by first inviting entries through various media channels including social media and peer-to-peer networking. We then pored over the 100+ entries taking into account several factors, including the company size, the individual’s team size (minimum 2), their work experience (minimum 5 years) and any significant achievements with a solid business outcome.
We also utilized our team’s expertise and industry knowledge to ultimately determine 40 under 40 professionals that grabbed our attention the most.
Undoubtedly, it has been a difficult task, and we hope that this list serves not only as a recognition of the brilliant work out there, but also as an inspiration.
We hope you have as great a time reading this as we did compiling it.
