It’s the 30th anniversary of the Media All-Stars, Adweek’s celebration of the smartest and sharpest executives working in the media agency business today.
(The All-Stars originated in then-Adweek competitor Marketing & Media Decisions.) This year’s crew is headlined by Executive of the Year Sasha Savic, the U.S. CEO of MediaCom, which also won U.S. Media Agency of the Year honors earlier in the year. Jennifer Sever, an associate media director with Maxus, was named this year’s Rising Star—a non-vp-level up-and-comer who shows great potential as a future leader of the industry. They are joined by 11 other innovative agency execs from a diversity of shops. Read on for their individual profiles, and congratulations to them all.
