Ad Age just released its third annual 40 Under 40 list and Viacom Velocity’s very own SVP of Creative, Chris Carlson, made the cut. This top industry list names some of the brightest minds in media and marketing making significant contributions to shape the future of our business.
The list is cultivated by Ad Age’s editors and reporters and takes into consideration innovation, outstanding achievements and reputation among clients and peers. “Ad Age’s 40 Under 40 recognizes some of the finest and most forward-thinking talent in marketing today,” said Judann Pollack, Deputy Editor of Advertising Age.
Chris joined Spike’s Creative and Integrated Marketing team in 2004 and has been working to elevate the network through boosting viewer engagement and innovative content solutions. Ten years later, he joined Niels Schuurmans and Dario Spina to form Viacom Velocity, the full-service integrated marketing and creative content team.
“It’s gratifying to be part of an organization with the weight and reach of Viacom, but still be allowed – and even encouraged – to remain nimble and take chances creatively,” Carlson said. “It’s exciting to be part of a group that’s interested in efforts that may unlock entirely new ways to advance the media industry forward.”
