Vishal Khanna of Wake Forest Innovations Wins National Marketing Award

Vishal Khanna, digital marketing and web development director at Wake Forest Innovations, was named 2015 Content Marketer of the Year by the Content Marketing Institute (CMI).

Content Marketer of the Year, one of four major awards presented annually by the CMI, honors an individual whose work in the field “stood above the rest” during the previous 12 months.

Khanna, who has been at Wake Forest Innovations since April 2013, received the award Sept. 10 at CMI’s annual conference in Cleveland. He was selected from a field of six finalists that included marketing executives from Ikea, Marriott, Emerson, CSC and GoPro.

“It is an honor to be recognized by the premier organization for content marketers,” Khanna said. “This award reflects my team’s commitment to producing innovative content that promotes the great work being done here.”

CMI’s Content Marketing Awards recognize the best content marketing projects, agencies and marketers. It is the largest international awards program in the industry.
