Stacy Malone (right), Pinterest’s VP of global business marketing and Sarah Gallon (left), Tourism Australia’s general manager – brand, campaign and media, are the latest leading marketers to join the inaugural Cairns Crocodiles Awards jury.

In her role, Malone sets the long-term vision for how Pinterest reaches and markets to businesses, advertisers and agencies of all sizes globally. Based in California, she has unrivalled experience in roles across the marketing spectrum having led global agencies and tech platforms for more than 20 years.

The winners of the inaugural Cairns Crocodiles Awards will be revealed at the culmination of Cannes in Cairns 2024. Check out the agenda and buy your tickets for Australasia’s biggest media, marketing, advertising and creativity festival now!

Prior to joining Pinterest, Malone led Meta’s North America Business Marketing team focused on enterprise and mid-market customers and built the vertical marketing capability in service of driving awareness and product adoption across 25 industry segments. Before that, Malone served as the chief operating officer of UM Worldwide.

Gallon, on the other hand, has spent the last six years with Tourism Australia and the last three leading on its brand, campaign and media executions. During that time, Tourism Australia launched its world-renowned “Come and Say G’Day” campaign across markets, delivering incredible success as Australia recovered from the COVID pandemic.

The pair join an incredible list of jurors and keep the Cairns Crocodiles Awards as the only awards show to be judged solely by clients.
