Adweek Media All-Star:Ellie Marble, New Business Development Director, Mindshare

Press Release   •   Nov 23, 2011 08:59 GMT

Mindshare North America’s Ellie Marble has been named a Media All-Star by Adweek Magazine. Now in its 26th year, Media All-Stars honors the best and brightest executives working in all aspects of media planning and buying.

Ellie joined Mindshare North America in 2007 as a new business associate, and four-and-a-half years later, Marble, 27, is the youngest new business director in the 14-year history of Mindshare.

Ellie now manaes the agency’s pitches across its four full-service U.S. offices. Her work ethic “puts everybody else to shame,” says Mindshare chief marketing officer, and Marble mentor, David Adelman. Her social skills help too. “Ellie brings charm and engagingness that inspires and encourages people to want to participate in new business,” adds Mindshare chairman Phil Cowdell, “and she manages it to make it as painless as possible.”

Earlier this year, parent company GroupM called on Marble to lead its winning pitch for NBCUniversal’s media business with teams at various WPP media holdings — Maxus, MEC, Mediacom, and Mindshare — collaborating from GroupM offices in New York, Chicago, and Los Angeles on discrete bids for NBCU’s TV networks, studios, and theme parks.
