Paul Knight, Manning Gottlieb OMD

Paul is the driving force behind a team that has delivered over 250 campaigns in a 12-month period. Campaigns that have delivered lifesaving information in arguably the toughest and biggest communications challenge this country has ever faced - COVID-19. As spends soared - HM Government is now the UK's top advertiser (Nielson) - Paul steered his team to deliver campaigns at unimaginable speed, many of which were media firsts and all 100% transparent.

His leadership style is respected and valued by the industry and team alike and under his leadership, culture scores have soared to 83%.

Without a question, there is no better media leader in the UK right now.
