B&T’s voting portal for the People’s Choice CMO continues to get a workout, with plenty of industry folk having their say on who they think is the best marketing boss in Australia.
And, according to the latest poll figures, there have been some major changes to the top five!
Flight Centre’s Clinton Hearne has managed to hold on to his lead in the People’s Choice CMO race, although it is a little slimmer now, with Guzman y Gomez’ Lara Thom coming from nowhere to claim second position.
Inspiration Paint’s Joel Goodsir and Medibank’s Fiona Le Brocq have both moved up the rankings by one spot to third and fourth respectively, while KFC’s Kristi Woolrych is the other fresh face in the top five.
