Maxus has announced that its Global CEO Lindsay Pattison has been honored as one of the 20 leaders on the Ad Age Women to Watch list, recognizing the year’s most accomplished and up-and-coming women in marketing, advertising and media.
Lindsay is the first female Global CEO within GroupM, overseeing the Maxus network across 55 markets. She is committed to developing female talent in her industry as President of WACL (Women in Advertising and Communications London). She is also Vice Chair of the World Economic Forum’s Future of Media Global Agenda Council – focusing on the transformations affecting the media industry and providing insight and thought leadership to the WEF in her field.
“These outstanding women are proven winners who have shown great accomplishments in their careers, from blazing trails to carving out new business opportunities and sparking marketing innovation,” said Ad Age Deputy Editor Judann Pollack. “We are proud to welcome them into our elite group of Women to Watch — and we will certainly be hearing more from them in years to come.”
The Women to Watch class of 2015 will be showcased in a special issue of Ad Age appearing both in print and online at Adage.com/WomenToWatch2015 today.
The winners were chosen by a team of Ad Age editors who reviewed hundreds of submissions, researched leading candidates, and consulted with staff reporters on the final selection.
