    Mark Zuckerberg leaps into lead spot

    By David Gianatasio | May 24, 2016

    87. Jim Heekin
    CEO
    Grey Group
    Revenue: $895 million (est.)
    Employees: 10,000

    During his decade at the helm, Heekin, 66, has piloted WPP's Grey from also-ran status into the creative stratosphere. Last year, the shop put on a clinic at Cannes, winning 113 Lions (including four Grand Prix statuettes) across offices in 18 countries, while also notching three golds at the Clio Awards. That performance helped earn Grey Adweek's Global Agency of the Year honors for 2015—its second win in three years. In February, Heekin promoted Michael Houston, who some view as the former's likely successor, to global president. At the same time, he tasked senior executives Per Pedersen, Andreas Dahlqvist and Nils Leonard with keeping creative on the cultural cutting edge following CCO Tor Myhren's departure for Apple.
