PANPA names SPH's Geoff Tan top marketer
Senior vice-president and head of strategic marketing in SPH, Tan was awarded the title at the regional event recognising best practices in newspapers and print in the Asia Pacific region. The event was held in Dockside, Darling Harbour in Sydney last week.
SPH also won two other awards at the gala dinner - trade event "SPH Turns You ON!" won in the Newspaper Marketing Awards - Events (90,000+ circulation) category, while The Straits Times Education Programme (STep) won in the Newspaper Marketing Awards - Young Readers category.
On Tan's win, PANPA's chief executive Mark Hollands said: "Geoff was voted the winner from an exceptional field of candidates. The judges said Singapore Press Holdings is among the best newspapers marketers in the world. It is no coincidence that SPH also won two other marketing awards. Geoff is an inspirational manager and a fantastic marketer for our industry."
