Lighthouse and Campaign to shine a light on 2018’s A List of leaders

The Lighthouse Company is delighted to announce a long-term partnership with Campaign and Haymarket to recognise and celebrate the leading lights within the advertising, media and marketing sector.

As the Debrett’s of our industry’s talent, the A List is published annually by Campaign and is constantly refreshed to reflect the most successful and in demand talent our sector has to offer. The Lighthouse will be proud partners of the publication itself – to be released in February 2018 – and will co-host an industry-wide celebration for those included in this year’s list in the new year. The A List partnership with Campaign is one element of a broader long-term strategic partnership with Haymarket that focuses on illuminating our industry’s leadership talent while delivering provocative thought leadership throughout 2018 and beyond.

Daren Rubins, CEO of The Lighthouse Company said, “Alongside Kathleen, and the entire Lighthouse team, I am delighted to announce this partnership with the A List which signals the start of a longer-term relationship with Campaign. Identifying, supporting and celebrating the most innovative, pioneering and best-in-class leaders has been at the very heart of the Lighthouse’s mission since our inception and the A List is a fantastic demonstration of the rich talent that creates short and long term value to clients, locally and globally. There’s never been a more important time to celebrate great leadership – at the most disruptive yet exciting time in living memory – and we very much look forward to illuminating the thoughts and opinions of our industry’s greats in the new year.”

Remarking on the partnership, Kathleen Saxton, founder of the Lighthouse said, “There has never been a better time for our business to be so intrinsically linked to the A List, one of our industry’s most revered properties on leadership talent. Not only does the highly personal and insightful line of questioning reflect the Lighthouse’s own understanding of individual leaders, the breadth of disciplines covered in the list also embodies the depth of talent caught by the Lighthouse beam; from creative to commerce, strategy to sales, publishing to programmatic. Most importantly, as our business is now increasingly focused on delivering executive hires across the C-suite, this represents a wonderful opportunity to celebrate those leading the charge today and those preparing to take up the mantle in the future.”

Rachel Barnes, Campaign UK editor, added: “The A List has become established as the definitive guide to who’s who in the advertising and media industry. With The Lighthouse Company as our new partner, it’s brilliant that we can continue to identify and celebrate our best talent in fresh and exciting ways.”
