Co-founder Aaron Walton and Account Director Lincoln Stephens make the 4A’s list of 100 People Making Advertising Great.
NEW YORK—July 24, 2017—Today, the 4A’s, the leading trade association representing the advertising agency business, announced the advertising professionals who it will honor as 100 People Who Make Advertising Great. This 4A’s 100th anniversary initiative recognizes a diverse and distinguished group across all levels and disciplines.
Honorees were nominated by peers, associates and colleagues through an online submission process that was open to all U.S.-based employees of advertising agencies and industry associations. The final 100 were selected from several hundred nominations of both established leaders and rising stars and were determined by a diverse panel of 13 industry players who represent a range of discipline and experience.
Beginning today and lasting through September, 100 People Who Make Advertising Great will be featured in a series of Adweek issues.
“The list represents individuals who go above and beyond to make a difference in the advertising industry—from creating great work to inspiring others to achieve greatness,” said Marla Kaplowitz, president and CEO of the 4A’s. “It was important that, as part of celebrating our first 100 years, that we also look to the future, especially when it comes to talent and diversity.”
