"I'm proud of the work Aprimo has done to change the game in marketing, and this recognition from SLMA and the American Business Awards is strong validation for our entire organization," said Arthur. "Our focus on working with customers to revolutionize their marketing and sales relationship through integrated marketing management enables them to improve performance where it counts: in increased sales."

A "Woman to Watch" in Sales Lead Management
This is the second year in a row that SLMA has recognized Arthur as one of the industry's top female leaders who "guide, inspire, teach and lead." Among the reasons cited in her nomination were her wealth of experience and industry influence, including a weekly CMO column on Forbes.com. Each week, she addresses topics ranging from the importance of the CMO-CFO-CIO relationship to Intelligent 1:1 Marketing. This latter concept, developed by Arthur herself, is about helping customers optimize the multiple channels in use for digital marketing today, as well as leveraging all the data management, business applications and analytics required to achieve integrated marketing success. Arthur also puts her lead management ideas and energy into practice at Aprimo, which has experienced steady year-over-year increases in marketing-qualified leads delivered to Sales during her tenure.
