In 2020, the Brand Storytelling Team decided it was high-time that the individuals that actually drive the business of brand-funded content get their time to shine. We sought to identify these people and illuminate their work. We asked you, the brand storytelling community, to help us identify these best-in-class brand storytellers, and you did. The inaugural Brand Storytelling Honor Roll was born, spotlighting six incredible brand storytellers working at the top of their game.
This year, The Brand Storytelling Honor Roll is back, and once again, you’ve helped us in identifying the best and brightest brand storytellers in the business today. You showed up and showed out, nominating marketers, creatives, and executives from across a myriad of brands, large and small: a pleasant reminder that the number of brand marketers becoming brand storytellers seems to be growing exponentially year after year!
Thank you to the folks who made nominations and aided us in this process.
After a thorough review of the nominees by the Brand Storytelling Advisory Board, without further ado, we are thrilled to announce this year’s members of the Brand Storytelling Honor Roll!
