The award recognizes marketing luminaries who have already left an indelible mark within their organizations and on the industry as a whole.


DMA noted in its announcement of the honorees that these leaders in the marketing industry have “launched initiatives that have helped to significantly grow their companies; wowed clients with creative or strategic plans that have made a major impact on those clients’ businesses; and influenced the industry in numerous ways—from enhancing the core elements of direct marketing, to advancing measurement, to guiding their company and clients on mastering new technologies, and much more.”


“This is an important award both for me personally and for Bluetext, because it validates the value of firms like ours that are solely focused on senior-level involvement to help solve our clients’ most difficult challenges in their transition to digital strategies,” said Jason. “DMA is at the forefront of these changes, so to be recognized by the Association is a huge honor.”


DMA stated that the award winners’ efforts are “helping to guide others in marketing to master such areas as integrating digital and traditional marketing, using cross-channel data to inform marketing decisions, and building loyalty at a time when customers churn at the click of a mouse. Their stories are ones of determination, creativity, and adaptability.”


Jason and the other winners were honored at a ceremony in New York that featured Ikea CMO Leontyne Green Sykes.
