Droga5 creative chairman David Droga ranks #51 on Adweek's Marketing, Media + Tech Power List

fea-power100-08-2015 (1).jpgUS trade title Adweek has revealed its inaugural Power List, a ranking of the 100 most influential, innovative and effective leaders controlling media, marketing and technology according to Adweek.

Aussie expat David Droga, creative chairman and founder of Droga5 ranks #51 on the list, which includes Google co-founder Larry Page, Apple CEO Tim Cook, Facebook CEO Mark Zuckerberg and the only other born in OZ, News Corp chief Rupert Murdoch. Droga was the ECD at Saatchi & Saatchi Singapore for 3 years in the late 1990s, before moving to London then New York.

According to the citation from Adweek: This intense, 46-year-old Aussie punches way above his weight owing to years of creative excellence, and now there's talk of his creating ads for Hillary Clinton's White House run. Droga's domestic ops reign as Adweek's U.S. Agency of the Year. Acclaimed campaigns for Mondelez and Reckitt Benckiser were trendsetters, while its Newcastle blitz crashed the Super Bowl with "refreshingly honest and hilarious online content," earning Adweek's nod as the best campaign of 2014.
