VERONA, N.J. — OTC Perspectives magazine on Tuesday named its third annual list of "Top OTC/HBA Marketers of the Year."
Marketers of over-the-counter products and health-and-beauty aids will be honored at a celebratory luncheon on May 10 during the OTC/HBA National Conference.
"These outstanding consumer healthcare marketing professionals are this year's top contributors to the advancement of both consumer health and the bottomline via informative, leading edge marketing communications," stated OTC Perspectives chairman Robert Ehrlich. "The award winners were selected from many worthy candidates. We intentionally did not rank within the Top Marketers list because each contribution is uniquely significant."
