Annual Excellence Awards

B.J. Stewart Women’s Achievement Award

In light of her tremendous accomplishments as a marketing professional, and her willingness to share her knowledge, time, and resources with others, the Sales & Marketing Council (SC) in 1992 established an award in honor of Barbara (B.J.) Stewart.

The B.J. Stewart Women’s Achievement Award continues to serve the industry’s future by encouraging recipients to emulate the positive qualities Barbara demonstrated in her professional and personal life, and also gives important and well-deserved recognition to outstanding women.

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.
