Eka Ruola chosen for global award
hasan & partners CEO, CCO Eka Ruola has been selected by The Internationalist as one of 30 Internationalist Agency Innovators for 2015. The group includes extraordinary individuals from around the world who are embracing change and making a difference for their agencies and for their clients.
Every year since 2006, The Internationalist has named those agency executives who have the rare ability to rethink current notions of brand building by simplifying complex internal processes, encouraging collaboration, managing risk while working in the midst of fast change, keeping sight of “the big idea” and championing multinational strategy. They understand how to better connect brands with their customers in relevant, contemporary ways, and are often the unsung heroes of making campaigns happen.
About the honour, which will be presented at an awards ceremony in Manhattan on October 28th. Ruola comments “This award is handed to a skipper of a brilliant ship, so it’s for all of us. This is what happens when you hire people smarter than you.”
