Name one thing about yourself that might surprise others Undisclosed.

If you were an ad, what would your strapline be? Undisclosed

Lowdown Finding yourself a rich father who will lend you money does not

necessarily enable you to relax on your yacht. Stelios is the original

restless entrepreneur - always willing to risk his own money, always

willing to learn. His determinedly cheap and cheerful easyJet

advertising, produced in-house, has earned him few admirers in the

creative community - bet they love his fares, though.

Lowdown Hand still bears the psychological scars of the US debacle that

led to his departure from Emap a few years back.But the determination

What one principle in life do you live by? Brown belt and black shoes -

I don't think so!

UN peacekeeping is stressful, advertising is not stressful - we put

things on the telly! So never take it too seriously, always enjoy it and

remember we are in the business of "making magic".

Your alternative career? Running a second-hand

record shop.

Name one thing about yourself that might surprise others My mum and dad

both appeared in the original Get Carter.

If you were an ad, what would your strapline be? "It's showtime!"

could easily have launched a career as the host of a pop quiz show. The

high-spirited managing partner, known for his penchant for leopardskin

jackets, works hard and plays even harder, especially where music is

concerned.

If you were an ad, what would your strapline be? "Just do it."

Lowdown Harrison is a man of action, calling a review of his agencies as

soon as he arrived at Muller from Nestle. The former Marketing Society

marketer of the year probably isn't a fan of Chris White, who lambasted

Harrison's creative legacy when he took over as managing director at

Nestle.

What one principle in life do you live by? Simply this: never tell

anyone the one principle

in life you live by. (If you do, you may think you'll come across as

David Ogilvy but you'll probably sound like David Brent.)

What advice would you give someone wanting to follow in your footsteps?

Find the right partner. You're going to be working harder than everyone

else, so it'll be good to know there's someone worth going home to.

Your alternative career? As a youngster, I suppose I had the potential

to be a man of letters - violence, God ... Afine preparation, in fact,

for the trade in which I find myself.

What one principle in life do you live by? Seize that proverbial day.

Career milestones Made managing director of Young & Rubicam at 29 and

assembled a team (Spring, Broadbent and Cousens), who led the agency

back to London's top table. Memorable moments included "Carl Lewis" for

Pirelli, launch of Ford Galaxy and Steve McQueen in Ford Puma. Moved to

group chairman, then European chairman of Bates Group in 1999. There

were many good moments (won Sky TV) and some good Bates agencies,

despite the Cordiant factor!

Following the demise of Bates, I became the only surviving member of the

Cordiant executive to remain at

WPP. Winning HSBC globally with WPP was a real learning experience and a

special moment. That was the

easy bit, the difficult bit has only just begun.

others that I would not expect of myself.

What advice would you give someone wanting to follow in your footsteps?

Tread carefully.

I sung at Glyndebourne

in La Boheme.

If you were an ad, what would your strapline be? "Reassuringly

expensive."

Lowdown Hoare had taken something of a back seat after a tough spell at

the now defunct Bates. He was instrumental in winning and now bedding

down the HSBC account at WPP. Clients and agency people alike trust and

respect him.

Job Chief executive, D&AD.

Company D&AD, 9 Graphite Square, Vauxhall, London SE11.

Work tel +44(0)20 7840 1111.

Details Not supplied.

Lowdown The conventional wisdom used to be that D&AD bosses did a lot of

lunching, threw together the awards and published the annual - late, of

course. Under David Kester and his successor, Hockney, the cash-strapped

body is moving fast. Thin attendance for many of the sessions at the

inaugural D&AD Congress at Billingsgate this year suggested the idea was

perhaps too ambitious for a cash-strapped industry.

I once ran the London marathon and was overtaken by Jimmy Saville.

If you were an ad, what would your strapline be? "Reassuringly

expensive."

Lowdown A gentle Geordie art director with a passion for fishing,

Hoggins has defied the unwritten law about advertising being a young

person's game by setting up with his long-time creative partner Chris

O'Shea. Waitrose is their first big catch but how long will it stay in

the net?

If you were an ad, what would your strapline be? "I want you."

Lowdown With a good strategic brain, Holden is seemingly PHD's heir

apparent to Jonathan Durden. Upon his appointment to the agency's

executive, he instigated closer links with its sister creative agency,

Abbott Mead

Vickers BBDO, and introduced a research tool looking at the neurological

Lowdown Hollingsworth's American sports-jock demeanour disguises a very

non-American sense of humour. He is credited with seeing through a long

present.

What one principle in life do you live by? Do unto others as you would

have them do unto you. Or at least have a damn good bash at it.

What advice would you give someone wanting to follow in your footsteps?

As a copywriter, don't rest until you find the right art director to

work with. Once the partnership clicks, the two of you will then create

a "third person" who is brighter, faster-thinking and a lot more

inventive than you'll ever be on your own.

Your alternative career? Would probably have joined BBC Radio and grown

those

leather patches on my tweed jacket. Either that or become an architect.

Name your three closest friends in the business One of the nicest things

about this business is all the great friends I've made over the years.

be described as positively Marcosian in its sheer scale and ambition.

Name one thing about yourself that might surprise others I can do a

rather good impression of Enrico Caruso singing Parmi Veder le Lagrime

on an early wax-cylinder recording.

If you were an ad, what would your strapline be? "Quality in an age of

change." But no-one reads them, you know.

Lowdown Cultivated and always impeccably dressed, Holmes has been the

keeper of the UK ad industry's creative conscience. He's been a scathing

critic of so-called "yob advertising" and rails against the decline in

craft skills.
