Hamel selected from 60 global nominations at 3rd Annual Awards for Excellence

Ottawa, Ontario – April 17, 2013 – Cardinal Path, the largest independent digital data analytics firm in North America and the #1 global reseller of Google Analytics Premium, is proud to congratulate Director of Strategic Services Stéphane Hamel, named “Most Influential Industry Contributor” by the Digital Analytics Association (DAA) for his track record of excellence and innovation, and long-standing contributions to the discipline of online analytics.

Hamel stood out from a group of 60 global industry leaders who were voted up by 3,000 DAA members to determine five finalists in each of five categories including Digital Analytics Rising Star, New Technology of the Year and Most Influential Agency/Vendor. Winners were selected by an industry panel of judges.

“The DAA Awards for Excellence honor the finest organizations and professionals in the digital analytics field today,” said Aaron Maass, chairman of the 3rd annual DAA Awards for Excellence Gala. “The winners were selected for their lasting contributions to the industry and we are proud to recognize the accomplishments of this highly talented group.”

Highlighting Hamel’s visionary contributions such as the de facto industry standards for analytics maturity, the creation of quality assurance tag detection software (WASP), and Hamel’s extensive teaching and speaking engagements, Cardinal Path co-founder Alex Langshur noted in his nomination:

“What sets Stéphane apart among a worthy list of counterparts is his approachability, openness and obvious love of the field. His strong technical chops, his ability to make the complex simple, along with a prodigious work ethic has produced an enviable body of work that has been made freely available (in both English and French!). I’m sure that his restless mind means that we as a community will continue to benefit from his contributions for many years.”

Reacting to the honor, Hamel said, “Knowing that I am recognized by my peers and colleagues is immensely rewarding. It’s a testimonial to my passion and long-term work to make small steps which add up to innovation and new ideas that contribute to the community. It’s a desire to continuously challenge myself and not give up when confronted with difficult situations. But above all, I have a genuine desire to learn and share with my Cardinal Path colleagues, with the Digital Analytics Association members and the digital analytics community at large.”
