MEC young guns dominate this year's Media Week 30 Under 30
The industry's next generation of talent was revealed at the unveiling of Media Week's 30 Under 30 in The Cuckoo Club last night (11 July), and MEC dominated proceedings with six winners.
More than 100 guests turned up at The Cuckoo Club to find out who had made it into Media Week's prestigious 30 Under 30 list.
The competition is supported by The Mail on Sunday and the newspaper's managing director Marcus Rich joined Jeremy King, editor of Media Week, on stage to reveal the names of those that made it onto the list.
Dominated by six winners from MEC, the list was also represented by young guns from companies including Digital Cinema Media, the Financial Times, Carat and The Insert House.
Recognising the next generation of talent in the industry, this year's 30 Under 30 saw entrants submit a video alongside their written submissions.
Judged by a team of industry experts that included Marcus Rich, David Wilding, planning director at PHD; Tom Dunn, digital strategy director at Maxus; Karen Stacey, broadcast sales director for Bauer Media, Clare Rush, joint head of investment at MEC and Philip Smith, head of content solutions for the Brand Republic group, this year's entrants were of a very high calibre.
From the 30 that made the list, the judges deemed two be outstanding – Dina Mohammad from the Financial Times and Neilson Hall from iProspect – while John Scott from M2M won tickets for Chris Evans' sold-out event, CarFest, courtesy of The Mail on Sunday.
