Max Tipton Award for Marketing Excellence

Max Tipton Award for Marketing Excellence

Since 1970, the Sales & Marketing Council has annually honored one individual who embodies the strength of character, passion for innovation and altruistic value system of the legendary Max Tipton.

Differentiating itself from other industry accolades, the Tipton does not honor a successful business career, but rather acknowledges the recipient’s pursuit of creative ideas, innovations and concepts as expressed by a significant body of work that has clearly passed the test of time.

Beyond being a recognized expert, the honoree must be a visionary leader who commands respect and whose selfless nature has contributed to the advancement of our industry through the consistent sharing of knowledge and mentoring of others.
