Three best friends in adland
No-one you would know.
Who do you owe most to for your success and why?
Two people: Susan Gillette, former president and former ECD of DDB Chicago; and Keith Reinhard, former chairman, CEO of DDB Worldwide. They gave me my start at our company and most importantly believed in me even when I may have given them reason not to.
Why do people like you?
I treat people equally… with respect for who they are and what they do.
My Aston Martin Vantage. It's my last vice.
Being alive. (I was dangerously sick this summer.)
What’s your idea of perfect happiness?
Watching my Chicago Cubs winning the baseball World Series. It hasn't happened in 102 years so I guess I will remain perfectly unhappy until it does.
What do you think will be the biggest change in advertising over the next five years?
The continuing and overwhelming influence of data affecting how we create conversations with people. Plus the continuing movement toward what we call "social creativity"… people are, and will be, the most important media of all.
