For the second year in a row, Strategic America’s Director of Data and Analytics, Jill Johnson, has been selected to judge the 2018 Data and Marketing Association’s (DMA) International ECHO Awards.

The Data and Marketing Association created the International ECHO Awards to recognize the best data-inspired marketers in the world. This includes data scientists, data-inspired creatives, data technologists and data driven marketers. Professionals of this industry enter to demonstrate the ability to create a meaningful and measurable impact on people, brands and businesses worldwide. There are over 30 categories honored by this award that stretches across each segment of the industry.

The judges for this year’s panel were selected by a Machine Learning platform built by Cogensia. The algorithms used represent the ECHO’s requirement to have the most qualified judges identified for each category, while including representation from around the world. Jill’s widespread experience and dedication to the industry epitomize the ideal candidate to judge such a prestigious award.

“I am honored to be selected as a judge for the 2018 International Awards for a second time. The awards are a celebration of marketing art, science and achievement and represent excellence in data-inspired creative,” Jill said.

The ECHO Awards Gala to celebrate award winners is scheduled for Sunday, October 7th in Las Vegas, Nevada.
