Execs from Bleacher Report, PMG and Insider named Digiday Future Leader Awards finalists
Susi Park of Bleacher Report, Tony Manfred of Insider and Carly Carson of PMG are shortlisted in the first-ever Digiday Future Leader Awards.
This year’s addition to our roster of awards programs aims to recognize the next generation of leaders in media and marketing: those who may not be common names on industry speaking circuits, but are highly effective in their roles and companies during a turbulent time in the industry.
Over the last four weeks, a jury made up of executives from Mindshare, Ranker and ’47 pored over hundreds of submissions and scored each based on whether displays of leadership, forward-thinking and results-driven successes were present. See the list of finalists below. We’ll announce the winners March 5.
