Welcome to Campaign Asia-Pacific's 40 Under 40 for 2017.
Faced with an impressive number of entries from all around the region, our judges unanimously agreed that these 40 candidates stand out as drivers of growth and progress, people who strive every day to bring their companies—and the industry as a whole—into tomorrow's world. At a time when uncertainty is one of the only constants, these are men and women who have demonstrated that they are fully equipped to ride the waves of change and, to borrow a description from one nominator, “to make stuff happen”.
We salute their energy, their ambition and the respect they command, even while many are still in relatively early phases of their careers. And we hope this nomination, which amounts to an endorsement by their colleagues and clients as well as by Campaign Asia-Pacific, will act as motivation to continue to succeed.
Finally, we would urge the industry to put all 40 of these talents on their own 'watch' lists to help gauge the health of the marcomms space and future trends within it.
