My colleague Tina Manikas has been named Jury President of the Promotion and Activation Lions for the 2010 Cannes Lions International Advertising Festival.
Tina's job at Draftfcb is Global Retail and Promotions Officer, which means she is responsible for keeping those disciplines strong at our through-the-line agency. You know she's doing a great job because we've been named #1 agency by PROMO Magazine two years in a row. She's a terrific specialist.
She's also a terrific generalist. One of the things I really appreciate about Tina is her teamwork and understanding as we employ the Draftfcb model. She understands not only the strength of retail and promotions, but the role of these disciplines. This requires good peripheral vision about what her other colleagues are doing. She's a Renaissance Practitioner.
