Thanks to everyone who nominated for this year's PerformanceIN 50, sponsored by Partnerize. We're extremely proud to present the top 50 industry players in performance marketing from 2019 — highlighting the exceptional people who've driven and inspired the industry forward in the last 12 months.
With this year's PerformanceIN 50 being both our toughest and most exciting to date, nominations were submitted in addition to PerformanceIN's own research with the alphabetical list representing a wide range of skills and attribute that has led to the further advancement of the performance marketing channel.
That being said, we've excluded the C-Suite from networks and SaaS and have rather featured members of their teams who are working hard behind the scenes — whether through global team management, technical know-how, reinventing the wheel on practices, customer relationship building, speaking as an industry ambassador, or otherwise.
"Shifting from the usual albeit equally deserving network and SaaS C-Suite to those working deeper in the trenches felt the right direction for the #PerformanceinIN50. Curated through a healthy mix of peer nominations and via our own research, those who have made this year's list should be exceptionally proud of their achievements," said Matthew Wood, founder of PerformanceIN.
One to watch
Furthermore, for the very first time, we’ve highlighted a number of individuals as One to Watch - indicating the rising stars of the industry, who based on our research, are pushing the conventional boundaries to improve the performance marketing channel going into 2020 and beyond.
“We are so fortunate to work in an industry made up of so many exceptional and influential leaders," said Jim Nichols, Partnerize CMO.
“Successful partnerships require great minds — to create and foster the right relationships as well as drive the innovation required to realise the tremendous potential of this industry. Congratulations to all on the PerformanceIN 50!”
