Meet the Judge: Ruth Oakey
To help make the entry process as smooth as possible, we launched our Meet the Judge campaign earlier this year, introducing the industry experts who will be assessing your submissions. As part of this campaign, we are now putting Eckoh’s Global Marketing Director, Ruth Oakey, in the spotlight.
Ruth is a digital-savvy professional with extensive experience in the industry. More specifically, she is proficient in directing marketing operations, leading cross-functional teams, and designing/executing strategic marketing policies for success in B2B operations.
Speaking to Engage MarTech’s Editor in a short interview, Ruth has now shared her advice for those who seek to enter the 2023 Engage B2B Awards.
