Alan Sexton, EVP, director of public affairs, Ogilvy Public Relations Worldwide, 37

Alan Sexton has come a long way since he arrived in the US from Ireland in 1999 as a relative newcomer to the PR industry. Today, Sexton is the youngest EVP in Ogilvy's New York office, having cofounded its multimillion-dollar public affairs practice, which he now manages. Despite the challenging economic climate, Sexton was able to increase revenue for his group by 6.5% year on year, while also expanding the team. In addition, he is the global client relationship lead on two of the firm's major accounts: LexisNexis and FM Global. Sexton has also helped solidify PR's role in an integrated marketing mix through his work with BP, American Express, and DHL.
