    "Winning 2013 Marketo Champ of the Year was a great honor! Marketo champions demonstrate outstanding leadership in the Marketo Community and are loyal advocates of the Marketo brand. To know that I was a leader amongst the best is very humbling. This award helped me receive the recognition that helped me take my career and thought leadership activities to the next level and I’m very grateful for the opportunities Marketo provides to their passionate customers. I love being in the Marketo Marketing Nation!"

    "Since I started using Marketo in 2009, my career has taken off. Being inducted into the first Champions group in 2011 advanced my career. Beyond the 500% increase in salary, the entire scope of my work has changed. I’ve moved from being a tactical, hands-on practitioner to becoming a strategic leader for the business. 2015 has already been a big year - winning Marketo Champion of the Year along with taking a new role as CMO of LeanData. I joke that I got a Marketo MBA, but in reality being a Champion has advanced my career like an MBA would have."

    "The Marketo Champion program is an incredible group of people who are rockstars at what they do. This is a group that I really look up to, and who inspire me every day. I consider it a tremendous honor to be a part of the program and to win the Champion of the Year Award at the 2014 Marketing Nation Summit.  Besides the opportunity to collaborate and learn from some of the best marketing operations professionals in the world, the Champion program gives us an open line of communication with the people behind the scenes at Marketo. It’s refreshing to me as a customer to see an organization that is truly listening and delivering on the feedback from their users."

    "Being selected as a two-time Marketo Champion has been a true honor, and a very exciting and rewarding experience overall. From a professional development standpoint, it opens many doors for growth and career advancement, with valuable opportunities to demonstrate leadership and expertise in the digital marketing community. We are very proud to have three Marketo champs at SmartBear, and having this level of expertise on the team has truly elevated our marketing organization. The past two years SmartBear has been honored with back-to-back Marketo Revvie Awards in the B2B category for Most Dramatic Business Impact and Most Creative Integrated Marketing Campaign, both recognizing outstanding results our team has been able to achieve with Marketo in terms of demand generation and revenue impact. The Revvie Awards and Champion programs are cornerstone demonstrations of Marketo’s above-and-beyond commitment to the success of their customers."

    Hear from Elliott Lowe, 3x Marketo Champ!

    Four years ago, I switched my company from another marketing automation solution to Marketo and I've been riding the wave to success ever since.  I’ve learned so much by spending a lot of time in the Community participating in the interactive discussions that provide new insights into solving complex issues and providing valuable feedback to Marketo’s product management team. As a result Marketo has recognized me as a Champion for the last 3 years, a Revvie finalist and a presenter at the Marketing Nation Summit.  And my upper management has recognized me as a valuable leader who has been able to make our marketing team more productive and provide them rapid process automation solutions and metrics whenever they need.
