Founder and CEO, W2O
By Kim Hunter, founder, president, and CEO, Lagrant Communications
I’ve had the pleasure of working with Jim on both the agency side and being a board member of The Lagrant Foundation. Jim is truly one of the most thoughtful, considerate, dynamic, fearless, thought-provoking, strategic, creative, and innovative leaders in the industry. Jim walks the walk and talks the talk.
He and W2O have been committed to changing the landscape of diversity and inclusion at his agency and the industry as a whole. It was Jim’s vision to develop the first healthcare fellowship for undergraduate and graduate ethnic minority students who are majoring in advertising, marketing, and PR.
Our industry will be better off when more leaders such as Jim Weiss embrace diversity and inclusion as a fundamental business imperative.
