Jack Martin: Power List 2011

Global chairman and CEO, Hill & Knowlton

Last year, Jack Martin faced the choice of whether to coast gently into retirement and spend the millions of dollars he earned from the sale of the firm he cofounded – Public Strategies – to WPP, or rejoin the fray with renewed vigor and a wider purview. Having merged Public Strategies with sibling agency Hill & Knowlton, network boss Martin Sorrell charged Martin with revitalizing the legendary PR shop and turning it into a genuine global contender.

Months later and Martin is clocking up air miles around the globe far away from his native Texas, where he was honored in 2010 for services to the state, spreading the gospel of research-led strategic consultancy and counsel from a rock-solid digital base.
