Linda Nguyen is not only a superstar platform director down under, she also “holds the burgeoning power to one day dethrone the big business movers and shakers of today.” So says AdNews, which has named Linda Nguyen to its annual list of Top 30 Emerging Leaders. Linda’s inspiring story may be familiar if you read this recent post, and now she’s also getting industry-wide attention for her fearlessness, collaborative approach, and strategic expertise.

Nominees for the AdNews list were required to have a minimum of seven years in the industry and be outside the C–suite or managing director role. Judging was conducted by an industry panel that included recruiters, marketers, consultants, and the AdNews editorial team.

“Linda really took the lead to be the Australian DSP self-service platform champion and upskilled herself to launch this new business model to the local market,” says APAC General Manager Damien Thomson. “It was a huge success, and she has secured some of our largest advertiser and agency accounts to date.”

Damien also reports that many people within the business look to Linda for strategic guidance because she’s such an expert in her field and enjoys bringing people together to learn and develop. Over the years, Linda has grown into a leading personality in ad tech and built a strong professional network of senior people who respect and value her, both inside and outside the office.
