What makes a professional the 2019 Marketer of the Year? It’s more than them earning your respect. Target Marketing is looking for brand marketers — not vendors or agency professionals — whose careers embody everything that’s great about marketing. We also want your nominations for the brightest Rising Stars.
Yakir Gola and Rafael Ilishayev, co-founders of goPuff are the first to share the title of Target Marketer of the Year. Even though the award usually goes to an individual with a long marketing career, Gola and Ilishayev have already distinguished themselves — finishing college and working 17/7 while sleeping in their warehouse in order to launch their business.
For the second year in a row, our Target Marketer of the Year is the company’s founder. Founders, in this case.
