The Chartered Institute of Marketing (CIM) held its Marketing Excellence Awards last night, with M&C Saatchi, being named the Marketing Team of the Year on behalf of Olympic Delivery Authority/TfL.

Debansu Das, head of marketing at social housing company SitexOrbis, was named Marketer of the Year; while British Red Cross, in partnership with Force-7 and ChannelFlip, received the Chair’s Award for their ‘Life. Live it.’ campaign.

Anne Godfrey, chief executive of CIM said: “The calibre of entries received this year demonstrates the exceptional talent of marketers working in a huge number of diverse industries from professional services to pharmaceuticals. Whilst many marketers battle with diminishing budgets and resources, these awards are an opportunity to showcase the innovative campaigns that are achieving real success against a backdrop of adversity. The shortlisted entries were of an incredibly high standard and each and every entrant demonstrably added value to their organisation.”
