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.
