CHICAGO, March 10, 2014 — The board of directors for the Chicago chapter of the American Marketing Association has named Tom Jacobs 2014-2015 President-Elect. For more than 75 years, the Chicago AMA has delivered cutting-edge marketing programming, connected marketers across all disciplines and business industries, and enabled marketing career advancement.

Tom Jacobs, President of Jacobs Agency, has served on the board of directors for the Chicago AMA since 2013. In his previous role as the VP of Membership, Tom added value across the organization, focusing on reenergizing the Chicago AMA’s strategic approach to membership. His early and effective efforts earned him the President-Elect nomination in 2014. In his new position, Tom will assist with chapter management before assuming the Presidency next year.

An industry pioneer, Tom launched Jacobs Agency in 1997 and has grown his business substantially during the last 20 years. Designated as one of the American Marketing Association’s Marketing Thought Leaders, Tom’s insight has been featured on and in the Wall Street Journal. He is a BMA Chicago Chapter member, industry speaker, and – in his new position – a voice for the Chicago industry.

“I’m deeply honored to take on the President-Elect role for the Chicago AMA,” said Tom Jacobs. “This association is truly the epicenter of marketing excellence in Chicago.
