Where Brand Marketers Come to Learn, Share and Connect

Brand Innovators on March 26 unveiled its list of formidible future leaders of our industry — the Brand Innovators Women to Watch Class of 2015, a snapshot of the rising star female brand marketers shaping the trends that map our business and the way companies communicate with consumers.

“These women have already carved distinctive career paths, and are on an upward trajectory that appears destined to propel them to the top echelon of marketing suites in North America and around the globe,” Brand Innovators co-founder Brandon Gutman said in making the announcement.

“Many significant changes in strategy, tactics and approach start with decision-makers who are newer to the process, with slightly less institutionalized memory. That’s just one reason we felt it was important to examine — and celebrate — this up-and-coming class of talent,” Brand Innovators co-founder Marc Sternberg noted in unveiling the list.

The Women to Watch Class of 2015 join their colleages, announced last week, the 2015 Brand Innovators Top 50 Women in Brand Marketing, to form the year’s Power 100.
