AdMonsters Announces the 2018 Power List

AdMonsters announces its 2018 Power List, honoring professional excellence and influence in digital media & advertising. The 58 honorees were named after a self or peer nomination process. All nominations were reviewed by the AdMonsters editorial team.

The inaugural Power List was selected based each individual’s demonstration of leadership, innovation, initiative, vision, execution, and mentorship.

“This year’s Power List encompasses a group of digital media professionals that bring leadership to their teams and innovation to their companies,” says Gavin Dunaway, Editorial Director of AdMonsters. “The people who make up the backbone of digital media are an oft unsung group of digital heroes who keep the media machine running day after day. AdMonsters sought to shine light on their hard work and accomplishments.”

Honorees will be recognized and honored on June 5, 2018, from 5:30 to 7:00 p.m. in New York City at the 2018 Power Hour, part of AdMonsters’ annual Ops conference event.
