Honor comes with recognition of Leo Burnett’s reputation as one of the world’s most awarded creative networks
Leo Burnett’s Executive Chairman and Global Chief Creative Officer Mark Tutssel has been appointed Grand Jury President for ADFEST 2019.
ADFEST is considered Asia’s most celebrated creative festival, annually gathering 1,200 delegates from around the world to network, exchange ideas and celebrate creative excellence.
“ADFEST is one of the industry’s most respected industry events, a champion of creative excellence and one of my favorite festivals,” said Tutssel.
The festival’s selection of Tutssel as Grand Jury President recognizes his career as one of the most awarded creative directors in the industry and Leo Burnett’s reputation as one of the world’s leading creative networks—topping the Gunn Report’s “All Guns Blazing” category for seven of the past eight years and ranking among the Top 5 most awarded creative networks for 10 years in a row.
“Under Mark’s leadership, Leo Burnett has been one of the world’s most consistently creative networks over the past decade,” said Jimmy Lam, President of ADFEST. “His experience as a creative leader will ensure only the most creative and effective work rises to the top.”
Tutssel will preside over the Lotus Award categories for Branded Entertainment, Effective, Integrated, Innova and Roots—given in recognition of work that preserves and celebrates the rich heritage and value of local culture.
