30 Under 30: The class of 2016

Next wave of Canada's marketing leaders revealed in annual search for top talent


Each year Marketing chooses 30 individuals we think are making a big splash in the marketing industry, and this year is no exception.

We pored over hundreds of nomination forms. We read about individuals working in all areas of the business from programmatic to PR, production to media and this year’s list reflects that.

As has been the case since we launched 30 Under 30 in 2012, the list is entirely an editorial decision. A call for nominations went out in May and we reviewed and researched each submission to determine a long shortlist. Each of those finalists provided additional information and contacts. After much discussion, the final 30 were selected.

We encourage you to read all 30 profiles. These are definitely industry superstars you should know.

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