The first Ogilvy Award, introduced by the Marketing Society and in association with Scottish Government, has been awarded to Guy Crawford, CEO of Jumeriah Group.

The award aims to recognise a Scot who has shown bold marketing leadership overseas and enhanced Scotland’s international reputation as a source of talent and innovation.

Crawford said: “I am truly honoured and privileged to have been of some small service to my country”.

Prior to joining Dubai-based Jumeriah, Crawford was managing director of MacDonald Hotels.

Graeme Atha, director of Marketing Society Scotland, said: “The new Ogilvy Award is about recognising shining examples of influential Scots who have made a big impact with their global leadership. It’s therefore great to be presenting this inaugural accolade to Guy Crawford, who with his impressive track-record has been leading the field in the hotel industry for over 30 years both at home and overseas, undoubtedly putting Scotland on the map as a thriving pool of talent and innovation.”
