Ad Age is opening up submissions for its prestigious 40 Under 40 list. Specifically, we are seeking people who will be under the age of 40 by March 21 who have made a significant contribution to the industry within the last year.
This could be the brand manager who has launched a successful new product; the data whiz who has come up with a new way to find marketing insights; the programmatic genius; the up-and-coming creative; the media star who has reinvented a medium or has significantly contributed to a successful new program.
This list recognizes the paradigm breakers, smart thinkers and thought leaders who are really making a difference and who are tipped to climb company ladders. The goal is to identify the people who are reshaping marketing and making important contributions to a company or business and the accomplishments cited must be within calendar year 2015.
