Promotion Marketing Committee (ANA & Gold Marketing Service Provider Members)


Description & Purpose

The core of promotion marketing is still sampling, couponing, premiums, sweepstakes and more but the focus now is on integrating these promotions into the overall marketing plan that includes deepening customer engagement with events, sponsorships, social media and experiences. Beyond driving trial through traditional methods, promotions can be held in physical environments at special events such as concerts, festivals, sporting events, cultural/tribal events and in the field, such as in grocery or department stores. Interactions in the field allow immediate purchases. The growth and integration of social media into consumer marketing plans has made recursive marketing an essential component of promotion marketing as brands give their customers the power to promote their products, driving advocacy and authenticity.

The Promotional Marketing Committee is for members who lead marketing initiatives in their organization. We will drive industry thought leadership, share innovations and expertise, and facilitate discussion on topics to influence better decision making. The Committee will provide a forum for members to learn about the latest promotion marketing innovations via interaction with their peers and additional perspectives from invited promotion marketing thought leaders on current topics.

Committee Chairs: 

Adam Sandler, Director of Digital Marketing, NBTY

Tracy Drelich, Marketing Activation Manager, BP Lubricants

Ken Krasnow, VP, Omni-Channel Marketing, Henkel


ANA staff managing the Promotional Marketing Committee are
Richard Feldman and Alexa Henderson
