Christina May, founder and chief marketing officer of Illumine8 Marketing & PR in Frederick, MD, has been recognized as a 2019 DMN 40UNDER40 honoree.

According to Illumine8 Marketing & PR, each year, DMN—”a leading resource for marketing and senior sales professionals that covers all aspects of digital and data-driven marketing analysis, research, and content—highlights “40 of the world’s best, most accomplished, high-level leaders in the business of marketing” that are under the age of 40.”

“I am honored to be chosen for the DMN 40UNDER40 list this year alongside some of the most well-respected and accomplished professionals in the marketing industry,” said May. “This accomplishment represents a milestone not just for myself, but the entire Illumine8 team. We are thrilled to be recognized for our consultancy’s growth as well as the creativity, strategy, and commitment we bring to our clients.”

According to the firm, after a 12-year career working in the publishing, tourism, and real estate industries, May founded Illumine8 Marketing & PR in the spring of 2013. Specializing in marketing strategy under May’s leadership, Illumine8 grew at a rate of 120 percent between 2014 and 2018, creating about 12 new jobs in the process. Illumine8 has helped its clients achieve an average top-line revenue growth of 10-20 percent through managing their customer lifecycle practices over a two-year period on average.
