Miles Nadal: Power List 2011

Chairman, president, and CEO, MDC Partners

Miles Nadal kept his checkbook in his pocket a little more in 2011 than he did last year, when the entrepreneurial Canadian's MDC Partners operation went on a buying spree and acquired agencies including PR firms Allison & Partners, Sloane & Co, and Kwittken & Company, as well as experiential marketing shop Relevent.

An avid networker, Nadal is a member of the Marketing 50, Global 50, and G100, and says one of his golden rules is not to partner with someone you don't trust enough to make executor of your estate. At the Cannes Advertising Festival last year he challenged entrepreneurs to impress him enough to invest $1 million in the best start-up in return for a 51% stake in the business.
