Judging panel names in place as 2008’s SWOT Awards looms near

Walt Disney brand manager, Gavin Quirk, and Microsoft Digital Advertising’s head of trade marketing, Alex Marks, are just two of the names lined up to judge this year’s SWOT Marketing Awards.

The awards, which provide agencies with the opportunity to demonstrate their marketing excellence, rewards what really matters – effectiveness.

Quirk and Marks join an expert judging panel that consists of Smith & Nephew Medical’s Malcolm Worrall; Chartered Institute of Marketing’s Garry MacLaren; Douglas McArthur of Planning For Results; and chair of the panel, Susan Hart from Strathclyde University.

Last year, MC2 collected the chairman’s award and Cube 3 Marketing landed the Grand Prix accolade.

Manchester’s BJL was also crowned marketing services company of the year at the event.

Entries for this year’s awards are now being accepted with the deadline for all submissions confirmed as Monday 21 January.
