CHI's Johnny Hornby, Adam & Eve's James Murphy and Mother's Mark Waites are among the leading creative lights identified in this year's Hospital 100.
Now in its third year, the annual compilation of people influencing the creative arts include the advertising leaders as established talents in the business.
Meanwhile, named among the emerging talents is Gareth Goodall, head of planning at Fallon.
The late Alexander McQueen is praised in the established category for having distinguished himself with his brand of dramatic tailoring, ground breaking collections and avant-garde shows.
Simon Cowell, the only name to feature twice, tops both the TV and Music categories for being an unrivalled talent in both the TV and music industry. In 2008 Cowell’s record label, Syco, accounted for a massive 70% of profits at Sony Music UK.
Other names on the established talent list are Matthew Freud, chief executive of Freud Communications and Hector Proud, managing director of arts and entertainment public relations agency Idea Generation.
In the digital space, emerging individuals include Daniel Ek, the founder of Spotify; Iain Dodsworth, chief executive of Tweetdeck; Rupert Loman, the co-founder of Eurogamer; Tim Rodgers, the founding partner of creative and production shop Rehab Studios; and Naomi Williams, head of digital at music promoter Darling Department.
Already established in the digital space, according to the survey, are Blake Chandlee, vice president of emerging markets, EMEA at Facebook; James Murdoch, chairman and chief executive of News Corporation in Europe and Asia; Erik Huggers, director of the BBC’s Future Media and Technology department; the writer and actor Stephen Fry; and Shane Walter, the creative director at digital creative agency Onedotzero.
Also, in the fashion sector as an emerging talent is Helen Jackson, founder of the e-tailtherapy.com style and fashion blog.
Will Turner, chief executive of the Hospital Club said this year's list "demonstrates the incredible talent surplus Britain has in the creative industries versus many competing markets".
He added: "With seismic changes in technology affecting business models across the board, we expect to see people on our emerging lists exerting more influence, more rapidly than ever before."
The Hospital 100 list is compiled by the private member's club in conjunction with The Independent newspaper.
