The award, from the Direct Marketing Educational Foundation, recognizes direct and interactive marketing professionals.

Matt McGowan, managing director of North America at Incisive Media, has been named a 2013 winner of the Direct Marketing Educational Foundation's Rising Stars Awards.

According to the DMEF, the annual award pays tribute to the most talented direct and interactive marketing professionals under 40. Winning candidates demonstrate superior leadership abilities - including a strong track record of outstanding results - and a stellar reputation for giving back through education and mentoring to support future generations in this field, DMEF says.

Additional 2013 Rising Stars Award winners include: JP Lind, co-founder of SpotRight; Kim Postulart, marketing director of the Democratic National Committee; Brion Roberto, global digital marketing and social media business partner at Diageo; Slavi Samardzija, executive vice president of marketing intelligence at Wunderman and KMB Group; and John Wernz, executive vice president and chief marketing officer at Wealth Enhancement Group.

McGowan oversees Incisive Media's North American business and has global responsibility for ClickZ, ClickZ Academy, Search Engine Watch, Waters Technology, Risk.net, and SES. Previously, McGowan was vice president at PropertyRoom.com; developed an e-business strategy for Pearson Plc.; and worked at the institutional desk at Schwab Capital Markets and Trading.

"I am honored to have my work recognized by my peers," McGowan says.

In addition to the Rising Stars Award winners, DMEF also announced its 2013 Corporate Commitment Award winner, Epsilon.

"The awards presented at the Rising Stars Awards acknowledge a whole new level of achievement among young professionals and corporate citizens in our field," says Craig Wood, head of insights integration at The Futures Company and chair of the DMEF, in a prepared statement. "To be named a Rising Star requires outstanding business success combined with extraordinary achievements in supporting and nurturing future generations in this field - through education, mentoring, and great generosity - setting one apart from their peers."

The awards will be presented at the Rising Stars Awards Dinner on June 11 at Three Sixty° in New York.

DMEF works to educate, develop, grow, and employ college students in the field of marketing and expand and enrich the talent pool of trained, market-ready marketers.
