One in a Million … and a Hundred

This year, the 4A’s is celebrating their 100th anniversary. Known for recognizing the people, agencies and ideas that drive the advertising business, the association marked the occasion by revealing their list of the 100 people who make advertising great. The list represents individuals who go above and beyond to make a difference in the advertising industry — from creating great work to inspiring others to achieve greatness. With that as the criteria, it comes as no surprise that Y&R Global CEO David Sable is among those recognized. From his high expectations to his strong work ethic, David inspires us every day.

And, apparently, we’re not the only ones. In addition to the 4A’s honor, the Ad Council recently named him chair of their board of directors. According to Lisa Sherman, president and CEO of the Ad Council, “David and Y&R have been long-time supporters of the Ad Council, lending extraordinary talent and time to many critical issues facing our country. We’re thrilled he is taking this leadership role on our board.”

Congratulations, David! Now everyone else knows what we’ve known all along …
