The Association of Medical Media (AMM) has announced the winners of the 2008 Nexus Awards. Sales representative Christine Miller, of The New England Journal of Medicine, was presented with the award for multi-specialty, while Chad Holloway, of Quadrant HealthCom's Neurology Reviews, won the award for single specialty.
“The AMM Nexus Awards represent those who exemplify the qualities of outstanding sales professionals, including superior service, professionalism and communication of ideas,” said MaryBeth Kurland, executive director, AMM. “By setting an industry standard, we hope to inspire others and reinforce the value of journal advertising.”
Recipients of the award were chosen by email ballots sent to an “industry-wide list of healthcare advertising decision makers,” according to Kurland. “Franklin Communications provided oversight of the voting process by implementing stringent quality control measures to ensure a high level of voter participation.
A panel of independent industry leaders reviewed a blinded list of top nominees in each category to determine the finalists. The identity of the winners remains a secret until announced at the luncheon.”
Awards were presented during a gala luncheon at the Plaza Hotel in New York City. More than 200 AMM members and associates were in attendance.
