Nancy Marcus, 2020 Legend Inductee
Nancy Marcus is one of Canada’s most recognized marketing professionals in the consumer packaged goods (CPG) industry. Her keen strategic insights and superior, bold marketing innovations have made her an award-winning influencer for more than 40 years. She has had tremendous impact on how companies market their products in the CPG industry working collaboratively and cross functionally within the organization.
Nancy has been a trailblazer since the start of her marketing career at leading companies including Phillip Morris and RJR MacDonald as one of the few female VPs to have a seat at the executive level. Most recently as Chief Marketing Officer at Kruger Products (with brands such as Cashmere, Scott's and SpongeTowels), she was the only female on the KPLP Management Team for more than a decade. Nancy has successfully contributed to the changing CPG landscape by redefining how companies embrace marketing to deliver bottom line profitability.
