Former Best and Less CEO and current non-executive director at Woolworths, AMP, Australia Post and Nine Entertainment, Holly Kramer, has been awarded for her career-long contribution to marketing at the annual Australian Marketing Institute (AMI) Awards this week.

Kramer was awarded the Sir Charles McGrath award, the highest award for the marketing profession, at the 34th annual Awards for Marketing Excellence, attended by 350 industry professionals in Sydney on 20 October.

Saying she was honoured to receive the accolade, Kramer highlighted the importance of marketing championing the customer in their organisation.

“Customer centricity is more important in business now than ever before, so the work of the AMI should certainly be acknowledged and applauded,” she said.
