Who’s Your Favorite #MKTGgenius? #SDSummit

“Surround yourself with people who are smarter and better than you.” – Alex Krawchick, HireVue

For the past several weeks, we’ve been celebrating marketing smarties and encouraging others to share their secrets to B2B marketing success. When we asked Alex Krawchick of HireVue what makes him a marketing genius, we were humbled by his response. It wasn’t about him. Instead it was about others.

This got us thinking. Who are the people that you surround yourself with or look up to as marketing geniuses? We want to know who are your idols – your #MKTGgenius friends, brethren and colleagues. From now until the SiriusDecisions Summit, please turn to twitter and nominate someone to get the #MKTGgenius glory they deserve. Check out our official rules on the contest page here.

Here’s a list of marketing geniuses who were nominated over the course of this campaign:
