Ogilvy’s Lazarus, No. 78, with a bullet

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.
