Croc Robyn up for WIM Award

The Crocodile’s Head of Social Media, Robyn Pierce, has been nominated for a Women In Marketing Award. The award for Contribution to Marketing recognises women who have contributed significantly to marketing as a result of the work they have achieved for their organisation or for the industry as a whole.

Robyn is arguably one of the most accomplished social media practitioners in the UK. She has built The Crocodile’s social media division from scratch, fulfilling her role as an entrepreneurial, commercially accountable department head in a busy agency, and in the process building an enviable roster of global clients.

“I’m very fortunate to work with a lot of talented people – both agency and client side,” says Robyn. “WIM provides an important source of support and inspiration for women in the profession and I’m excited to join their ranks.”

Commenting on the nomination, The Crocodile’s managing director, Jason Talbot, adds: “Being an early pioneer of B2B social has given Robyn a unique perspective. She’s passionate not just about the techniques and technologies, but about challenging perceptions and evangelising the possibilities.”

The WIM Awards ceremony takes place on Thursday, 16th November 2017 in Soho, London.

Buzzing from 4 more nominations

The Drum’s Social Buzz Awards celebrate and reward the very best in social media communications.

With Standard Life (Best Financial Sector) and VolvoCE (Best Social Event) we have yet again demonstrated B2B social can and should match anything the B2C market has to offer.

By driving richer experiences capable of supporting a deeper level of conversation we adopt a more human and personal approach. In B2B we believe this really can make the difference, so it’s fantastic to be the only agency to be nominated twice in the Best B2B category.

“As the most nominated B2B agency, we are really proud to be shortlisted four times this year. It’s great recognition that we continue to deliver award worthy work,” says Robyn Pierce, Head of Social Media at The Crocodile. “We couldn’t do this without amazing collaboration with our clients.”
