Annual list honors women leaders at AOL, BuzzFeed, JP Morgan Chase, Hulu and more who are reshaping the industry

Ad Age today unveiled its 18th annual Women to Watch list, honoring 20 of the year's most accomplished and up-and-coming women in marketing, advertising, and media.

Advertising Age's Women to Watch list spotlights outstanding women who have made names for themselves at media companies, tech companies, brands, and agencies around the world. This year's honorees join nearly 500 forward-thinkers who have been recognized by Advertising Age since the launch of the highly esteemed list nearly 20 years ago.

The 2015 class of Women to Watch includes executives who are leading their companies into e-commerce (Mondelēz International's Cindy Chen); breaking new ground in data and analytics (Annalect's Erin Matts); overseeing a Chinese brand's international expansion (BlueFocus International's Holly Zheng); bringing big-name entertainment like Stephen King’s 11/22/63 online (Hulu’s Jenny Wall); and helping to make AOL so appealing that Verizon paid $4.4 billion to acquire it (AOL's Allie Kline).

"These outstanding women are proven winners who have shown great accomplishments in their careers, from blazing trails to carving out new business opportunities and sparking marketing innovation," said Ad Age Deputy Editor Judann Pollack. "We are proud to welcome them into our elite group of Women to Watch -- and we will certainly be hearing more from them in years to come."

The Women to Watch class of 2015 will be showcased in a special issue of Ad Age appearing both in print and online today. They will also be fêted at an Advertising Women of New York luncheon in New York City on August 5th.

The winners were chosen by a team of Advertising Age editors who reviewed hundreds of submissions, researched leading candidates, and consulted with staff reporters on the final selection.
