Campaign Asia-Pacific has announced their annual Women to Watch 2018, with design director/founder of indie design & advertising agency Run, Laura Cibilich, as the only New Zealander to make the list.
The Women to Watch list celebrates outstanding female high achievers in the marketing, advertising and communications industry across Asia-Pacific, selecting the brightest, most dynamic and promising talent. This year the judges said they were looking for women who go above and beyond, who champion equality and diversity, eradicate stereotypes, are inspiring, professional and ambitious.
Here’s what the awards citation says: “With over 15 years of industry experience under her belt, Laura thinks big. She is a self-starter that built her own agency, Run from scratch in 2008, with its course charted towards becoming one of New Zealand’s top independent creative agencies.
“I’m honoured to be included in this illustrious list of women in our industry, doing amazing things.”
“Laura has created a small yet diverse team, including one of the few Maori creative directors in New Zealand.”.
Cibilich is also a SheEO Activator, joining a global network designed for women to support and finance each other in entrepreneurship.
“So far,” she says, “Run seems on track with the number of clients on our books doubling in the last year and an impressive client list including 2degrees, Niue Tourism, and the Food and Agriculture Organisation of the United Nations.
“I’m honoured to be included in this illustrious list of women in our industry, doing amazing things.” says Cibilich.
