The Transportation Marketing and Communications Association (TMCA) is accepting nominations for its Transportation Marketing Executive of the Year Award. The award recognizes a senior-level marketing executive who best demonstrates marketing excellence. Qualified candidates must be senior-level marketing or communications leaders within the North American transportation industry who were responsible for managing and executing marketing programs during the 2009 calendar year.
"The recession has shown that only the strongest will survive in this industry," said Dick Metzler, president of TMCA. "We're seeking the marketing executive who has demonstrated the leadership and innovation necessary to make a true impact and help keep their company profitable."
The winner will be in good company. Previous recipients have included marketing gurus from such companies as Transplace, FedEx Freight, the American Trucking Associations, Ryder, DHL Express, and Yellow Corp.
The recipient will be recognized at this year's TMCA Annual Conference in Fort Lauderdale, Fla., June 6-8. The deadline for nominations is April 15.
