Wunderman Global CEO Mark Read named Dadi Individual of the Year

Wunderman's global chief executive Mark Read has been named as Digital Individual of the Year at the Dadi Awards.

Read, who took on the role at Wunderman alongside that of chief executive of WPP Digital, was given the award following a call for nominations from The Drum's online readers and an independent industry judging panel, which has resulted in The Drum's Digerati 2015.

The winner of the annual accolade, Read, was unable to accept the award in person as he was attending WPP's 'non-conference' Stream in Athens but sent a video message thanking The Drum for the distinction.

Sir Martin Sorrell, chief executive of WPP and a former winner of the award himself, commented on hearing of Read's victory: “A fitting tribute for Mark and all things digital at WPP.”

The winners from this year's Dadi awards can be found online.
