The Chartered Institute of Marketing (CIM) Ireland has announced that one of the world’s largest and most innovative law firms, Baker & McKenzie, will be sponsoring its 17th Marketing Awards.
The CIM Ireland Marketing Awards consist of 15 categories and Baker & McKenzie is sponsoring the Professional Services category. Marketing teams and individuals who have worked on campaigns throughout Ireland have been encouraged to enter. Winners will be announced at the gala celebration, attended by over 150 marketers, which will be held at the Europa Hotel in Belfast on 10 November 2016.
Commenting on the sponsorship, Carol Magill, CIM Network Manager Ireland, says: “Baker & McKenzie is a true global success story – working everywhere in the world in collaboration with all cultures, but also from right here, on our doorstep in Belfast. The firm cited the local talent as one of their key reasons for coming to Northern Ireland, and nurturing that very talent is a key priority for us too, so we’re excited to be collaborating.”
Jason Marty, Baker & McKenzie’s Executive Director in Belfast, adds: “We are delighted to partner with CIM Ireland in celebrating and sharing excellence in professional services marketing. We have built a strong foundation in Northern Ireland, working with the best talent, and we’re still growing and continually looking for people to bring us their brilliance, across a wide range of roles including a growing team of global Marketing, Business Development and Communications professionals.”
Baker & McKenzie’s Belfast-based team consists of 200 legal and business services professionals who support the firm’s global clients across 77 offices in 47 countries. Now well established in Northern Ireland, the team has made a significant impact on the way the firm works with clients from many of the biggest companies in the world.
