Seeking nominations for the executives who are leading the next wave of marketing tech

From startups that help marketers manage data to large marketing clouds making big bets on the future of advertising, marketing technology is on the rise.

We're planning to publish a list of executives from marketing tech companies who are leading the charge in their own companies and the industry, and we want your ideas.

These executives are helping to solve challenges like measuring data and helping marketers prepare for regulation like Europe's GDPR and the upcoming California Consumer Privacy Act. They are pioneering new business models for marketing-tech software and shaking up decades-old industries like television. And they're raising money from VC firms and investors who are funding both established companies and new startups.

Please submit your nominations here by October 4.

What we're looking for

Criteria for the list will be determined by several factors, and we are looking to identify a diverse group of people with different ranks and roles, based on our own reporting and nominations.

In determining the list, we'll consider company revenue, headcount and funding as well as interesting business models and the size of the problem that a firm is trying to solve.

Nominations for leaders should include the executive's title, role, responsibilities, and examples of the company's performance in the marketing industry, with as many quantitative results as possible.

This list is specific to marketing-tech companies and separate from a list Business Insider will publish later this year on top marketing-tech as well as advertising companies.

Here are a few examples of previous lists that show the structure and format that we use:

Again, please submit your nominations here by October 4. We will aim to publish the list in October.
