Christian Juhl: one of 4A’s 100 people who make advertising great
26 July 2017
To celebrate its 100th year, the 4A’s created a list of 100 people who make advertising great. We'd like to congratulate three GroupM leaders for making this list: Irwin Gotlieb, global chairman at GroupM; Rob Norman, chief digital officer, GroupM Worldwide and chairman of GroupM North America; and John Montgomery, GroupM's EVP of brand safety. We’re also proud to share that our global CEO Christian Juhl was included in this illustrious group.
We’re even tempted to gloat about the fact that we have Christian as our CEO, but such bombast is unbecoming. Let’s say the points below are only facts:
- Our billings have increased every year since Christian joined three years ago.
- He orchestrated our sale to WPP in late 2015.
- Under his direction, we’re expanding across the world and into offline media to become a full-service agency.
-And more clients, like NBCU and Target, are consolidating their media with us, doubling our billings to almost 3 billion.
OK, maybe those facts sound a little bit like we’re gloating -- especially the one about our billings -- but they’re also hard to argue with. So forgive us this for this final bit of bragging: there’s no denying that as our CEO, Christian is making advertising great every day.
