Visha Kudhail, Director of Business Marketing at Pinterest EMEA won the much-coveted Best Leader in Marketing Award (Brand) at the Global Women in Marketing Awards 2022.

The Best Leader in Marketing Award (Agency) was scooped by Katie Bullen, Managing Director of activ Marketing Group UK. While Kai Deveraux Lawson, Senior Vice President of Dentsu Creative USA was awarded the Storyteller of The Year Award. Victoria Usher, the CEO of GingerMay UK picked up the PR Communicator of The Year Award.

The Equality Advocate of the Year award went to Daniel Wilkinson, Chief Solutions Officer, Paid Media at Jellyfish UK. 

The awards, which were held in Central London last night (16th November), were hosted by Debbie Ellison, Global Chief Digital Officer at VMLY&R.

Women in Marketing will continue to be a platform that celebrates, educates and reflects the evolving landscape of marketing through a female lens and male equality and equity advocates.

Ade Onilude, Founder and CEO of Women in Marketing Community Interest Company

Ade Onilude, Founder and CEO of Women in Marketing Community Interest Company, commented: “To the Global WiM Awards 2022 Shortlists, Winners, Highly Commended and Commended, thank you for your leadership, inspirational and game-changing work.”

She continued: “We Salute You! Women in Marketing will continue to be a platform that celebrates, educates and reflects the evolving landscape of marketing through a female lens and male equality and equity advocates.”

Debbie Ellison, Global Chief Digital Officer at VMLY&R, added: “Never has there been a more important time to celebrate women that are pioneering and successfully influencing their teams, organisations and marketing landscape globally. And our landscape is constantly evolving: new channels, new technology, new behaviours - all contributing to a more difficult world in which we need to help brands excel. 

Ellison pointed to the profound impact of the past twelve months, highlighting the fact that research from Deloitte on Women at Work revealed that 53% of women say their stress levels are higher than they were a year ago and almost half (46%) feel burned out. 

She added: “To this year’s winners, we celebrate and recognise you and to Ade, Founder & CEO of WiM, we thank you for the platform you’ve created on which we all stand.”
