Executive Committee 2016

– The Executive Committee of the Creative Circle comprises the 9 highest scoring creative directors from 9 different agencies who, in an annual survey, is asked to rank the top 30 creative directors in order from 1-50. This table is then collated and the top 9 names selected.

– The chairperson has four extra nominations, primarily to redress the predominantly pale, male make-up of the committee.

– There is an IAB, Design Counsel and Loeries representative on the Exco.

– Members of the Creative Circle vote for the Chairperson every two years.
