The Internationalist Names 30 Agency Innovators

December 1, 2016

Thanks to your nominations, The Internationalist has selected the INNOVATORS of 2016. Thirty men and women from agencies throughout the world were chosen from several hundred nominations.

This year's INNOVATORS are transforming our concepts of a contemporary advertising agency business. This extraordinary group of 30 individuals from all corners of the globe are embracing change and making a difference for their agencies and for their clients. Today, innovation is integral to so many new disciplines that underscore the breadth of expanding agency responsibilities- content creation, programmatic buying, analytics, strategy, ecommerce, mobility, as well as creative, media, digital, and, of course, inspirational leadership that embraces future vision.

Every year since 2006, The Internationalist has named those agency executives who have the
rare ability to rethink current notions of brand building by simplifying complex internal processes, encouraging collaboration, managing risk while working in the midst of fast change, keeping sight of "the big idea," and championing multinational strategy. They understand how to better connect brands with their customers in relevant, contemporary ways, and are often the unsung heroes of making campaigns happen.

INNOVATORS underscore how breakthrough thinking knows no bounds of geography, age, company size, or title within today's agency organizations. Throughout the year, there will be a number of events to acknowledge THE INNOVATORS. We find there is always strong interest in connecting the industry's best and brightest.
