Not that we believe in lists, but we thought it important to communicate that, for what we think is not the first time, Ogilvy & Mather Worldwide CEO Shelly Lazarus is the only advertising executive to be named to Forbes’ annual list of the world’s 100 Most Powerful Women, coming in at No. 78 . The fact that she's the only one is bad news for the rest of you, but particularly good news for Shelly, who last year came in at no. 93 . She’s up 15 spots! To provide a little context, she’s 3 down from England’s Queen Elizabeth II, who came in at No. 75, and two above Queen Rania of Jordan, No. 80.
