The American Marketing Association’s (AMA) Atlanta chapter awarded its lifetime achievement award to William Pate, president and CEO of Atlanta Convention & Visitors Bureau. This annual award honors an individual who has significantly advanced the marketing profession in Atlanta over the course of his or her career, while also contributing substantially to the community.
“William’s contributions to the Atlanta marketing community are immeasurable,” says Kimberly Strong, president of AMA’s Atlanta chapter. “We know him as a staunch supporter of our organization and tireless advocate for Atlanta, but he is also a prominent leader in the hospitality industry nationally and internationally. He is a force in marketing and AMA is pleased to honor him.”
Pate was recognized during the AMA’s 2020 Atlanta Marketer of the Year Awards virtual event at the end of June.
