Adweek’s 2017 Power List: Our Top 100 Leaders in Media, Marketing and Tech

To assemble this installment of The Power List, we considered the profiles and results of global corporate titans, taking into account criteria such as company value, revenue and growth, market performance, consumer reach, their standing among rivals, industry accolades and media buzz. This list is not intended to chart earnings or track executive performance year over year. Image counts a lot, as does the volume of news a company contributes to the Adweek stream.
