Cincinnati Marketing Legends 2017 Class Revealed

AMA Cincinnati is pleased to announce the three professionals we will honor as our inaugural class of Cincinnati Marketing Legends during our 2017 AMA Pinnacle Awards Celebration.  This prestigious new award recognizes professionals who have made a lasting impact, and brought acclaim to the city of Cincinnati and/or the profession of Marketing.

Selection Process

Ten finalists were selected in early 2017 through our Pinnacle nomination process. We opened it up to the community to weigh in with support for their choice. We received a tremendous amount of input, and the competition was formidable!  In the end, taking into account the body of work, lasting impact, and community support, these three worthy professionals rose to the top.
