40 under 40 2019: list out today

Campaign's annual list of Asia-Pacific's top rising young professions in marketing and communications will be released on Thursday.

40 under 40 2019: list out today

With double the number of entries compared to last year, this year’s 40 under 40 featured an outstanding group of strong nominees, including all types of marketing and communications professionals.

Our in-house judging team, made up of members of Campaign Asia-Pacific's senior editorial staff, had difficult decisions to make, but ultimately agreed on 40 candidates that stood out at the top of their class, representing Asia Pacific’s next generation of leadership.

Nominees came in from right across Asia, reflected in the dozen different markets in the final list, made up of agencies, brands, media publishers and technology firms. While a multitude of different talents made the list, the growing importance of data and technology expertise was a consistent theme. Many young professionals have grown their careers with technology, but those able to best apply and convert their skills into real results for brands and clients are inevitably excelling.

All work and no play, however, is no fun at all. Many of the young professionals are balancing work with outside interests, finding ways to tap a variety of inspirations to grow their businesses, help their colleagues and propel the broader industry.

The list will be published by noon on Thursday on Campaign Asia-Pacific and will accessible to Campaign members only. All those who submitted nominations received a Campaign membership with their entry fee.
