Each month The AD Club recognizes an outstanding individual who has demonstrated a strong commitment and is a valuable member of our organization and the industry at large. This month we recognize Mark Ford, Executive Vice President, Advertising Sales, Time, Inc. Your dedication and support are greatly appreciated. Congratulations!
For more than a century, The ADVERTISING Club of New York has driven impactful change in the advertising industry, igniting conversation around the causes that matter most – diversity being one of them.
As you may be aware, the Club launched a new platform, i’mPART, to encourage and support a diverse workforce and raise awareness of the benefits of diversity in business. To date, it has raised more than $1 million to support the nation’s leading diversity programs.
This unprecedented success would not be possible if it weren’t for our dedicated publishing partners. Mark has been a huge proponent of i’mPART, and continues to champion the effort at Time. For that, we recognize Mark as The AD Club’s July Person of the Month.
As EVP, Advertising Sales, Mark works across Time Inc.’s brands to drive overall advertising sales revenue for the company and to build on Time Inc.’s leadership in the marketplace. In this role, he oversees Branded Solutions, Content Solutions and Targeted Media, and is also responsible for elevating the profile and adoption of Time Inc.’s slate of new ad products, which draw on the company’s premium content, scale and rich data and insights.
A 28-year veteran of Time Inc., Mark has driven innovation and revenue for some of the world’s biggest media brands through multiplatform product development, digital and international expansion, licensing and retail initiatives. He was named to BusinessWeek’s 2008 list of the “Most Influential People in Sports Business” and Mediaweek’s 2010 list of industry innovators.
We applaud Mark for his dedication, time and support, and look forward to a continued partnership with Time, Inc..
Please join us in thanking Mark and Time Inc. for all they have done and continue to do.
