Winner 2010 - GalbraithWight Business School Marketing Team of the Year Award


Winner: The V50 team - Astellas Pharma



PMEA Winner - GalbraithWight Business School Marketing Team Of The Year Award


This category provides the opportunity to look at operational effectiveness, strategy and integration within either a European, global or domestic team. Entries were invited from any team that demonstrated cross-functionality and did not necessarily have to be from a permanent department.

In particular the judges were looking to see how the team came together to build the marketing plan; how problems were solved; how the team affected the results and what the team did in the face of adversity? Overall, they were looking for entries that made them think, "I really want to be part of this team!"

Award sponsor

Colin Wight, chief executive, GalbraithWight Business School


Astellas had set an aspirational goal for Vesicare to push the boundaries of performance. The team was created to keep this common goal at the forefront of everything they did; driving brand performance and putting the right initiatives in place to make Vesicare a true market leader. They led by example across the company, changing behaviours and mindsets to do things differently with a focused and results-orientated approach and delivered beyond previous expectations.

Marketing team of the year


Judges' comments

"This excellent team impressed us with the way that they evolved, dramatically changing the cultural approach, thinking, and beliefs that had been limiting success. Brave and innovative with real focus and great direction, they achieved outstanding results - driving Vesicare to outperform every other brand in the market and not only reversing the decline in the market but stimulating market growth."
