The Internationalist Logo


The Internationalist announces its annual list of 100 Marketing Leaders from around the world to acknowledge those industry executives who are consistently moving our business forward and are the champions of insuring that brands can cross borders with relevance and responsibility.

The focus of The Internationalist is to connect the people & ideas in international marketing through content, thought leadership, community and collaboration. Since 2003, The Internationalist has been honoring those industry pioneers who further the role of multinational marketing as Internationalists of the Year, Innovators, Trendsetters, The 100, The Latin American 100, The Next 50, The European 50, The Asia 50, and The China 50. Bringing together these individuals will create the foundation of a new peer-to-peer initiative called THE INTERNATIONALIST 1000. (That's our 10 years of 100 new leaders every year!)

THE INTERNATIONALIST 1000 project-- 1000 Marketers around the World Reshaping the Future of Marketing- in partnership with the ANA/Association of National Advertisers is a group of dedicated industry leaders who are reshaping our understanding of marketing's expanding role throughout the world.

"The reinvention of marketing" is becoming a more critical issue as the industry looks to deliver purpose and meaning to its brand values in a business world increasingly defined by social media, mobility, analytics, "big data" and the need for global growth. The expanded INTERNATIONALIST 1000 group can help shape this agenda.

All realize that the business of marketing is being rewritten every day.

You'll recognize many names, as these executives have been mentioned in the pages of The Internationalist magazine and our e-newsletters throughout the year. Some have been named Internationalists of the Year, Trendsetters, Innovators, Idea People or Award Winners, but all share a devotion to excellence and a belief in furthering marketing standards as part of worldwide best business practices. Some may be inspiring people in their home market or around the world. Others are simply risk-takers who demonstrate why status-quo just won't work anymore.

Highlighting the people & ideas behind today's successful cross-border campaigns and breakthrough accomplishments is at the heart of The Internationalist's mission.

We hope that all of these executives will remain a vibrant part of this community for years to come, and join us in our larger INTERNATIONALIST 1000 endeavor with ANA.
