Klein: chairing Campaign's Agency of the Year Awards

Klein is a former CEO of Engine.

Debbie Klein, the group chief marketing, corporate affairs and people officer at Sky, is to be chair of judges for Campaign’s UK Agency of the Year Awards 2021.

Klein brings experience as both a leading client and a former agency leader.

She joined Sky, the European media and entertainment company, in 2018 from The Engine Group, the independent agency group, where she was chief executive of Europe and Asia-Pacific.

She also worked in strategy and insight at Saatchi & Saatchi and Nielsen earlier in her career.

Klein said: “I know from my own time in advertising that agencies are full of creative, entrepreneurial people who are brilliant business partners to brands.

“I look forward to chairing the Agency of the Year Awards to see how the UK's best agencies have done that this year, especially in advancing inclusion and sustainability in their work.”

Brand-side marketers judge Campaign’s Agency of the Year awards. New categories include start-up of the year and in-house agency of the year.

The first round of judging will take place in December, when the shortlist will be announced. The winners will be revealed at the awards dinner in London on 22 February.

At the 2020 awards, Uncommon Creative Studio won gold for creative agency of the year, Mother London won independent agency of the year and PHD UK won media agency of the year.

Campaign runs Agency of the Year around the world, including the UK, the US and Asia-Pacific.
