Meet the 30 Under 30 for 2015

This year's honourees have resumes that read like those of seasoned vets

OCT_NOV_COVER_2Age ain’t nothin’ but a number, right? Right. Some proof: we’ve found another crop of 30 Under 30 honourees whose resumés read like those of seasoned vets.

We’ve got Cannes winners, agency founders and the shepherds of some of Canada’s fastest-growing brands. For the fourth year in a row, our search for the best and brightest young minds in marketing has garnered staggering results.

Deciding who makes the cut is a difficult job. As competition within the industry intensifies, the level of skill, motivation, gumption and determination of those working within it increases alongside it. We had more than 500 applications this year, the most we’ve seen since our start in 2012. We read about individuals working in all areas of the business from programmatic to PR, retail to media. This year’s list reflects that and will continue to evolve as the industry does.
The future of marketing can often seem uncertain. But, after reading this issue, we hope you walk away knowing you’re in really good hands.

We’ll be publishing profiles of each 30U30 lister over the course of the day, and we encourage you to read up on each one, because there’s a good chance you’ll be seeing them speaking at conferences, leading companies and disrupting the industry in the next few years. You might even find yourself working for one sometime soon.

Visit the 30 Under 30 website to read all the profiles.
