Announcing the 2021 ThinkNW Marketing All-Stars

Part of why ThinkNW was started can be found in this region’s DNA. There is a rich history of brands that have had a significant impact on global culture. Some of the best agencies in the world are here. And you cannot tell the story of the Pacific Northwest without mentioning technology and the entrepreneurial spirit that sits in every corner of the place ThinkNW calls home.
To that end, ThinkNW chose to recognize some of the marketing talent that continues to make a difference in the Pacific Northwest. Chosen by the ThinkNW Board of Directors and Executive Committee, the first-ever ThinkNW Marketing All-Stars class includes leaders from some well-known brands, agencies, and companies from the Seattle and Portland areas, Vancouver B.C., and southern Oregon. 
Congratulations to all of the honorees, and we look forward to continuing this and other new traditions next year.
