PMW begins the search for the 100 most influential people in performance marketing

Brands, agencies, platforms and tech providers have just one month to nominate their champions to be included amongst performance marketing’s top pioneers and experts.

This summer, Performance Marketing World is embarking on a mission to create its first UK-based Powerlist, celebrating the people driving positive change in the industry. 

Free to enter, either via self submissions or recommendations, the final list will be chosen by a judging panel made up of senior industry leaders and the PMW Editorial team. 

The deadline for entries is Thursday 24 August 2023.

The full 100-strong Powerlist will be published on PMW in September 2023 in a special editorial feature, ahead of the ‘Golden Quarter’ as marketers prepare for their busiest sales period of the year and seek inspiration and expert advice.

Robin Langford, Editor at PMW said: “In such a fast evolving industry, it's no surprise that our readers have told us how keen they are to identify and hear from the thought leaders and marketing data experts at the forefront of these changes. This list is a response to that demand. It’s designed to be an essential industry resource, giving our readers a clearer picture of the performance marketing landscape and the people shaping that terrain as we hurtle into an AI-powered future.”

How to make the PMW 100 Powerlist

The type of qualities we’re considering for inclusion in the PMW 100 Powerlist are:

  • Innovation that drove the marketing industry forward
  • Thought leadership that changed mindsets
  • Achieving world-class results for brands or clients that set a gold standard for the industry
  • Overcoming obstacles to defy expectations

This list is primarily aimed at people who work in the UK performance marketing industry but there can be an international element to their role, as long as a significant portion of their work involves the UK market. Any level of seniority will be considered. 

Langford added: “Alongside well-established industry leaders and famous pioneers, we’re also seeking out the people behind those lesser known marketing success stories from businesses large and small. 

“Tell us your data-led tales of adversity, bravery, inspiration and success so we can champion the true pioneers in this fast growing industry.”
