We are extraordinarily proud to announce that our CEO Becky Munday won the “Special Award for Outstanding Contribution to Marketing” award last night at the WIM. Given to a female who has contributed significantly to marketing in recent years. We also hugely proud of our very own Charlie Hills (MD and Head of Strategy at Mando-Connect) who was shortlisted for the innovative changemaker award.
Becky said “It is with enormous thanks and tremendous gratitude to accept the reward and to be part of such an inspiring community”. Women in Marketing (WIM) is established to educate, inspire, connect, recognise and empower women through the cycle of their lives – congratulations to all the winners.
As first female Chairperson of the IPM for 50 years’ and with 21 years’ promotional marketing experience, Becky has earned a stellar reputation as one of the most inspiring leaders in promotional marketing. Regularly empowering people to create Mando’s truly compelling growth story whilst working with the world’s largest brands to run promotions, incentives and partnerships born from science.
Ever the innovator, Becky has continued to invest in data to grow WPP’s longest standing company’s whilst using her countless passion and drive to propel the promotional marketing industry.
Whilst Becky’s roots are traditionally within promotional risk management and delivering promotions within a fixed budget. Becky has helped transform Mando’s thinking by utilising 40 years of past promotional data, YouGov insight and WPP resources to help deliver a unique solution to help brands them unlock insights that matter.
Charlie’s achievements also cap off what has been an amazing year for Mando-Connect. Charlie has gained kudos for her innovative approach to partnerships through developing the unique data-led Partnerships Engine, the powerhouse that drives the development of all Mando-Connect’s partnerships. Also, gaining further recognition for the intellectual property partnership with YouGov to publish the first white paper of its kind: The UK’s biggest ever study into what Brits want from Loyalty: https://yougov.co.uk/news/2018/06/05/what-the-british-think-of-loyalty-programmes/. A study so powerful that it was covered in every marketing publication.
We would also like to take this opportunity to congratulate all winners and thank all our clients across Mando. We look forward to some amazing campaigns in 2019.
