Canada’s Marketing Hall of Legends names 2022 winners

Six Canadian marketers recognized for remarkable leadership achievements


TORONTO: Canada’s Marketing Hall of Legends (CMHOL), one

of Canada’s most respected and renowned industry awards, is announcing the

induction of five new Legends and this year’s Marketer-on-the-Rise.

Canada’s newest Marketing Legends are:

  • Chris Lang, former chairman, Lang Partnerships Network
  • Zak Mroueh, founder and chief creative officer, Zulu Alpha Kilo
  • Brenda Pritchard, partner, Gowling WLG
  • Dani Reiss, president and CEO, Canada Goose Inc.
  • Edie Weiss, president and CEO, Radke Film Group

The 2022 Marketer-on-the-Rise is Marie Chevrier Schwartz, founder and CEO of

Sampler, a leading digital product-sampling company.

The award winners will be honoured and formally inducted by AMA Toronto on May 12

at an in-person gala event.

Last year in 2021, Sharifa Khan (Chinese name), president and CEO of Balmoral Multicultural, broke the glass ceiling as the country’s first multicultural marketer to be inducted into Canada’s Marketing Hall of Legends. Balmoral is the Canada’s largest, longest-running multicultural marketing agency connecting corporate brands with the diverse multicultural communities in Canada. Due to COIVD-19 last year, she will receive this reward in person on the upcoming event.

“Each of these diverse Canadians has elevated our industry in Canada and on the

international stage and are being recognized for their remarkable leadership

achievements,” says Tina Portillo, president of AMA Toronto, the association that runs

CMHOL. “Through the Marketing Hall of Legends, their career stories are celebrated to

inspire us, share wisdom, and ultimately help empower new leadership and business

growth throughout our community.”

Canada’s Marketing Hall of Legends honours the industry’s most inspiring visionaries,

enablers, builders and mentors who’ve had tremendous impact on the field of
