CMO-of-the-Year award goes to Aurelija Kazlauskienė of BMI EMBA Class 13

BMI EMBA alumna Aurelija Kazlauskienė was named “Chief Marketing Officer of the Year” at the Lithuanian ad festival Adrenalinas 2017. She is a Board Member as well as Strategy, Marketing and Customer Director at Lietuvos Draudimas – the largest insurance company in the Baltic region.
 
“Congratulations to Aurelija for this high recognition, which is very well deserved! She’s a great example of the BMI alumni we’re so proud of, who are now helping lead international businesses around the world. Her contributions have undoubtedly played a key role in Lietuvos Draudimas’ impressively strong performance year in and year out,” said BMI Director General Jaunius Pusvaškis.
 
Aurelija, who completed BMI’s International Executive MBA programme in 2013, said much of the credit goes to the team of 16 outstanding marketing professionals she leads at Lietuvos Draudimas. She also expressed gratitude to BMI and the great people BMI has connected her with.
 
“Studies at BMI were a super pit stop in my professional journey. Not just for the incredible amount and speed of knowledge provided, but also for the several dozen people I studied with. It’s a special feeling to still enjoy their support even now, to have a valuable conversation whenever you meet someone or call for simple advice: what would you do in this situation? I’m thankful for that time in the BMI classroom, which broadened my horizons and brought me deeper knowledge as well as people who are real treasures. Thank you BMI Class 13!” she said.
 
The annual Adrenalinas festival is jointly organized by the Lithuanian Marketing Association (LiMA) and the Lithuanian Association of Communication Agencies (KOMAA) to recognize and encourage excellence in advertising and marketing communication.
