The UK winners of Campaign’s 40 Over 40 awards were announced with both Guy Marks CEO OMD EMEA, and Vicky Bloyce, Executive Director, Communications and Marketing OMD EMEA, being honoured.
In the inaugural year of the awards in the UK, Guy and Vicky have been awarded for their leadership, dedication, integrity, and mentorship throughout the course of their careers to date.
A panel of judges picked the 40 winners, who represent a mix of advertising, marketing and media professionals, spanning brands, technology firms, agencies, media owners and consultants.
One of the judges, Rania Robinson, co-founder and chief executive of Quiet Storm, said of the winners: “For me the most stand-out candidates were the ones that were not only having a major impact on the organisations they worked for but were using their leadership skills to initiate or engage with programmes that helped accelerate diversity and the progress of next generation talent.”
Campaign launched the awards in February to recognise individuals over the age of 40 for their noteworthy contributions to the industry, from ground-breaking work and head-turning innovations to outside-of-the-box thinking and memorable campaigns.
