Ormes has received multiple industry awards and accolades in her career, most recently ranked on Forbes’ most influential CMOs list this year.
"I'm humbled to be leading this incredible panel of judges to recognize the creative minds and inspired leadership at agencies,” Ormes said. “They continue to be our closest partners in bringing great brands to life and driving results, especially in a year filled with new challenges and opportunities."
Ormes will lead an esteemed panel of C-suite marketer judges in determining the winners of this year’s awards across categories spanning advertising, creative, digital, media and PR. Applicants can nominate C-suite marketers here for the judging panel.
