First Ogilvy Award won by Jumeriah Group CEO
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.”
