Ad Council Announces NBCUniversal’s Linda Yaccarino as Board Chair

“Linda is a visionary leader in our industry and in her many years on our Board she has been a true champion of the Ad Council and our work on the most important social issues facing our country. Under Linda’s leadership, NBCUniversal was an invaluable partner on our COVID-19 response efforts earlier this year—acting with incredible speed to develop and place exceptional creative within days of the pandemic being declared in March. I look forward to working closely together on our Vaccine Education effort, as we convene the communications industry for the most significant campaign in the Ad Council’s history.”
-Lisa Sherman, President and CEO of the Ad Council

“There are almost no words to express how proud I am to serve as Chair, working alongside the extraordinary Lisa Sherman. I’m so grateful to my predecessor and friend David Fischer, who has taken great care to prepare me for this role and to see his visionary leadership firsthand. The Ad Council shows us what’s possible when we combine the power of responsibility, creativity, credibility, and care for people. It’s an honor to join them in this new capacity.”
