Debbie Qaqish – Most Inspiring in B2B and B2C C-Level Management

She has been prolific in the area of Marketing Operations, authoring a white paper series and bylined articles on the rise of this critical functional area. Debbie coined the term Revenue Marketing in 2011 and authored the award-winning book, “Rise of the Revenue Marketer.” She hosts radio program WRMR Power Talk Radio for Revenue Marketing Leaders. Debbie is now a six time winner of SLMA’s Most Inspiring/Influential in Sales Lead Management and a Top 20 Woman to Watch. She is also a regular columnist for B2B Marketing Magazine and Strictly Marketing Magazine.
Kevin Joyce – Most Inspiring Leader in LeadGen
Kevin Joyce inspires his team to evolve lead management for clients, accounting for acquisition and retention. This year, Kevin innovated TPG’s funnel lead management process for clients Bandwidth and GE Digital. He introduced the concept of why companies should create two different funnels to manage leads, one for acquisition (new leads), the other for retention and growth (existing customers). Kevin also introduced SCOTSMAN, a new list of criteria to measure the marketing funnel and handoff of sales ready leads, to replace outdated BANT. Kevin is regular columnist for Target Marketing Magazine.

Many thousands of lead generation agencies and millions of marketing departments must manage sales leads properly to gain revenue in a predictable manner. This is why we recognize our leaders in this annual election.”
