Tom Judge, an SIU College of Business Alumnus who graduated in 1980 with a bachelor’s degree in marketing, was voted one of the top 50 most influential people in sales lead management in 2009.

Over the past five years, Judge has worked as Vice President of Strategy and Business Development with Direct Marketing Partners, a full service direct marketing agency that focuses primarily on business-to-business (B2B) accounts, located in Sacramento, California.

Judge’s responsibilities at Direct Marketing Partners are to provide clients with direct marketing service solutions that maximize their return on investment goals on marketing and sales investments.

“I feel honored to be recognized among the top thought leaders in my industry. Not only will I receive credential and recognition in the B2B professional marketing industry but I will be offered more speaking opportunities, conference invitations, and new business opportunities,” said Judge “These experiences and recognition will likely drive more clients to Direct Marketing Partners, completing the cycle. This is great for Direct Marketing because our competitors do not have this type of recognition.”
