Lowdown: Holden's work in re-engineering PHD last year seems to have paid off, with the agency pulling in a number of impressive accounts. As well as being a fine media thinker and, therefore, heir apparent to Jonathan Durden, Holden spends his spare time (and money) buying up properties in Liverpool. Hollingsworth, Scott Job: President and chief executive, EMEA, Foote Cone & Belding. Company: FCB Europe, 55 Newman Street, London W1. Work tel: +44 (0)20 7947 8006. Born: 25 September 1953.

Lowdown: The hard-working Hollingsworth is known for never using up his holiday quota. He likes to fly a plane when he isn't living in one. His sports jock demeanour disguises a very un-American sense of humour. Holmes, Adrian Job: Executive creative director, EMEA, Young & Rubicam.

Lowdown: Not only the perpetual perfect gent but living proof that there is agency life after 50. His position at Lowe became untenable once Matthew Bull usurped his role as worldwide creative chief.

Why doesn't my BlackBerry work down here? Lowdown: Hornby's unstoppable drive and sense of humour have combined to make him one of the industry's most successful players. The sale of CHI was rumoured in 2005, but expect Hornby to hold out for a breathtaking price tag. Hough, Julian Job: Founding partner, WCRS. Company: WCRS, 5 Golden Square, London W1.

Lowdown: Hough's secondment as the marketing director of 3 has come to an end. Speculation is rife that Hough's position in the marketing department was more than beneficial when WCRS needed this year's rather unconventional campaign signed off. A passionate cyclist. Howarth, Nicholas Job: Group chief executive, Clemmow Hornby Inge. Company: Clemmow Hornby Inge, 7 Rathbone Street, London W1 Work tel: +44 (0)20 7462 8500. Born: 30 November 1969.

Lowdown: Despite his 35 years, Howarth looks too young to be the head of any agency, but his new group chief executive role at Clemmow Hornby Inge is his second senior industry job. His infectious enthusiasm and boyish charm will boost the agency's next stage of growth. Howell, Rupert Job: Regional director and president, EMEA, McCann Worldgroup; chairman, UK & Ireland Group, McCann Erickson. Company: McCann Erickson London, 7-11 Herbrand Street, London WC1.

What would you like the inscription on your gravestone to read?: He delegated wisely. Lowdown: It has been a baptism of fire for Hughes, who replaced David Walsh as the FT's global ad director two years ago. Circulation slumps, revenue slides and a parent in the financial wilderness must make him wonder if it was wise to take on such a thankless role. Still, no-one can doubt the loyalty and commitment of a man who has been with the paper for more than 20 years. Hunt, Terry Job: Chairman, EHS Brann. Company: EHS Brann, Briset Street, London EC1.

What would you like the inscription on your gravestone to read?: I was right - there is no god.

None of the three I put down last year mentioned me, so I'm not falling for that one again. What are the initials of the most loathsome person you have worked with?: RJH - it's my brother Richard.

His operational review has seen several positions axed this year as he seeks a more brand-focused marketing strategy. The Mancunian's dislike of Scousers is no secret, nor is his admiration for Rupert Murdoch, whose leaving note to him is framed in his loo. Hytner, Richard Job: Chairman and chief executive, Saatchi & Saatchi, EMEA. Company: Saatchi & Saatchi, 80 Charlotte Street, London W1. Work tel: +44 (0)20 7462 7122. Born: 1959.

Who in the industry do you most admire?: Nigel Bogle - humility, humanity and a sense of humour. He's got the lot.

What makes you angry?: Creative mediocrity masquerading as talent. If you weren't you, who would you be?: Jim Hytner's sister. Where will you be in ten years' time?: With my two grandchildren. What would you like the inscription on your gravestone to read?: So, Jim, tell me again why you never gave me any of your business.

What would you like the inscription on your gravestone to read?: What was that all about? Lowdown: Known as Jingall to his mates, for obvious reasons. When Ingall appeared in last year's list as Phil Andrews' best industry friend, he thought it was his only chance of being in the A List. However, this time round he has made it on his own merit.

What would you like the inscription on your gravestone to read?: Ubi Amor Ibi Fides. Lowdown: Inge's creative department has come in for a lot of flak because his agency's creative product is not as outstanding as its formidable new-business record or planning credentials. His affability and ties to the Tesco campaign from his days at Lowe, however, do render him a crucial component in CHI's successful pitch record. And he's still one of the most respected creatives in the business. Ingram, Chris Job: Founder, Ingram. Company: Ingram, 101 Wigmore Street, London W1. Work tel: +44 (0)20 7016 8200. Details: Not supplied. Lowdown: The man with more than £50 million in his back pocket is still grafting away as though he has something left to prove. But it's not Ingram's style to live the high life: after all, he owns Woking football club, for chrissakes. Ingram, Tamara Job: Chief executive, Grey London.

Lowdown: Effervescent and highly energetic, Ingram has a tough challenge to get the Grey Group in London back on course after a turbulent recent period in its history. She brings a bit of maturity to what is a relatively young senior team at the agency. Helped by a long and close ink to Grey's bedrock Procter & Gamble client. Isherwood, Bob Job: Worldwide creative director, Saatchi & Saatchi. Company: Saatchi & Saatchi, 80 Charlotte Street, London W1. Work tel: +44 (0)20 7636 5060. Details: Not supplied.

Lowdown: Although she likes to play it down and it ignores her commitment to the broadcaster, the vivacious Jacob's main claim to fame is the prominent role she found herself in during Virgin Radio's dispute with its errant disc jockey, Chris Evans. She was allotted her 15 minutes of national newspaper fame when she gave evidence against him in the now-notorious court action of 2003. These days, she continues to work hard to balance the demands of her job and her role as a mum - she gave birth to her second child in August. Jameson, Lucy Job: Joint head of planning, DDB London.

What's been your best career move?: Moving from Doyle Dane Bernbach to Chiat Day. Back then, DDB was a creative powerhouse and Chiat's New York office was small and unproven. Chiat, which had just gained notoriety for Apple "1984", was more cutting-edge than we realised at the time; it had an open space, it was based downtown when no other agencies were and its focus was squarely on growth and creativity. It was like going to graduate school to be an entrepreneur. Describe yourself in three words: Passionate, driven, energetic. Where is your favourite place for lunch?: Zuma. What is your media diet?: I'm a media junkie. I spend hours scouring bookstands and my media choice is very catholic ... I read anything from the Financial Times to the National Enquirer to online news and my regular is NYTimes.com. What is your favourite brand?: Rolex.

What objects do you always carry with you?: BlackBerry, cell phone, hotel notepads (they remind me of the fantastic opportunities for travel in my global role).

If you weren't you, who would you be?: A combination of two people who share the same initials: Jack Kerouac and John F Kennedy. Where will you be in ten years' time?: Negotiating a deal for clients at JWT Studios in Bollywood. What would you like the inscription on your gravestone to read?: He had integrity and a great sense of humour. Lowdown: Jeffrey was the brains behind relaunching JWT as a "billion-dollar start-up" in an attempt to revitalise and revolutionise the network. In 2004, his first year as its worldwide chief executive, JWT won HSBC and Samsung globally, but has failed to pick up any major global business in 2005.

If you weren't you, who would you be?: A psychologist, so I could still find out lots about people. Where will you be in ten years' time?: Still being cheeky! What would you like the inscription on your gravestone to read?: She never gave up. Lowdown: The editor of Emap's enormously successful celebrity weekly is a mix between the consummate professional and a cheeky schoolgirl. Having lost none of her Northern ways, Johnson is both direct and unflappable. She's also a bit of a dancing queen. Johnson, Luke Job: Chairman, Channel 4. Company: Channel 4, 124 Horseferry Road, London SW1. Work tel: +44 (0)20 7396 4444. Details: Not supplied. Lowdown: A critic of state ownership, the serial entrepreneur Johnson was an unlikely choice as the Channel 4 chairman. However, he acted swiftly and decisively when Mark Thompson departed and his appointment of Andy Duncan was a brave one. Since then, he has shown an acute understanding of Channel 4's challenges and has given Duncan a clear mandate to steer the broadcaster in the right direction.

His hobbies include curry eating and he has an encyclopaedic knowledge of pop music. He's said to be a great mimic - but only by people who can remember who Jimmy Saville was. Jones, David Job: Global chief executive, Euro RSCG. Company: Euro RSCG, 350 Hudson Street, New York, NY 10014. Work tel: +1 212 886 4389. Born November 1966. Place of birth Cheshire.

What would like the inscription on your gravestone to read? He loved life. Lowdown: At 38, Jones is one of the industry's youngest network chiefs. He's fiercely energetic and survives on about four hours' sleep a night. This comes in handy when you consider he splits his time between his house in La Rochelle, France and the office in New York. His one-year-old daughter adds to the sleep deprivation. Jones, Dylan Job: Editor, GQ. Company Conde Nast,: Vogue House, Hanover Square, London W1. Work tel: +44 (0)20 7499 9080. Born: 1960. Place of birth: Ely, Cambridgeshire. Lives: Marble Arch, London. Family: Wife Sarah; daughters Edie (seven), Georgia (five). What's been your best career move?: Joining GQ.

What would you like the inscription on your gravestone to read?: Lot vacant. Lowdown: Greg Gutfeld, the editor of Maxim, has launched an anti-Jones and GQ campaign this year, but the unstinting self-publicist Jones has failed to rise to the bait and, so far, has turned the other cheek. Instead, he has been focused on the launch of his first book, iPod, Therefore I Am. He has also been busy developing new avenues for GQ, launching both a Sport and a Style supplement. Jones, Louise Job: Executive strategy director, PHD. Company: PHD, The Telephone Exchange, 5 North Crescent, Chenies Street, London WC1. Work tel: +44 (0)20 7446 9809. Born: 3 July 1964.

Company: Independent News & Media, 191 Marsh Wall, London E14. Work tel: +44 (0)20 7005 2300. Born: 9 December 1957. Place of birth: Manchester, Lancashire. Other details: Not supplied.
