PM360 Announces 2017 Trailblazer Award Finalists

Top Companies, Marketers and Initiatives to be Honored on September 14th   

NEW YORK, NY, August, 23, 2017–The finalists are in for the ninth-annual PM360 Trailblazer Awards. PM360, a leading health-marketing industry trade magazine, will honor the pharmaceutical and medical device industries’ most influential innovators. Established in 2009, the Trailblazer Awards are given to outstanding companies, marketers, marketing teams, brand managers, and initiatives representing the best the industry has to offer.

“The stature and size of our Trailblazer Awards continues to grow each year,” says Anna Stashower, CEO and Publisher of PM360. “And we couldn’t be more delighted! Not only did we receive more overall entries than ever before, but companies, in larger numbers than we have ever seen, entered this year’s awards also. So as the competition becomes tougher and tighter, we can’t thank our judges enough for choosing the most deserving entries as finalists.”

The award finalists are selected by the PM360 Editorial Advisory Board, which is comprised of some of the most forward-thinking leaders in their respective fields.

To reach the finalist phase, companies must show achievement in various areas including innovation, talent development, and social responsibility. Meanwhile, Brand Champions and Marketers of the Year are judged on their leadership, skill, dedication, impact, and effectiveness of their work. The Marketing Teams are assessed by the quality of their work together and the results they were able to deliver. And the Initiative entries are evaluated on their ability to overcome challenges; the skill, innovation, and quality of planning and execution; and the effectiveness of the work.

Finalists are acknowledged and winners will be honored during a special reception at Gotham Hall at 1356 Broadway in New York City on Thursday, September 14, 2017. Each year, the Trailblazer Awards Gala attracts more attendees from the pharmaceutical industry than any other industry event. Profiles of all of the night’s winners will appear in PM360’s October issue.

Emmy Award-winning actress and comedian Judy Gold will serve as the emcee for the event. Judy Gold has written and starred in two critically acclaimed, long-running Off-Broadway hit shows: The Judy Show – My Life As A Sitcom, (New York Times critic’s pick) and 25 Questions for a Jewish Mother, which won the 2007 GLAAD award for Outstanding New York Theater. Judy has also appeared as a guest star on several popular TV shows including “Louie,” “30 Rock,” “2 Broke Girls,” “The Big C” and “Sex & The City.”

Additionally, PM360 is honored to announce that Margaret G. McGlynn, former President, Merck Vaccines, and currently Board Director at Vertex Pharmaceuticals, Amicus Therapeutics, Orphan Technologies and Air Products; and President, HCU Network America, will be the recipient of the prestigious Trailblazer Lifetime Achievement Award.
