Twelve up-and-coming industry pros were selected from more than 40 nominees as this year’s PPB Rising Stars. The annual recognition program seeks out and spotlights the industry’s budding leaders based on their accomplishments, leadership potential and involvement in their industry and community.

PPB started the program in 2010 and since that time it has become one of the most sought-after recognitions in the industry.

Sarah Merrill, Mercury Promotions and Fulfillment and MiPPA Board Secretary was chosen to receive the 2016 honor. Sarah will be recognized at the PPAI North American Leadership Conference in San Francisco on August 14 and in the September issue of PPB Magazine.
