LOS ANGELES, March 21, 2016 /PRNewswire/ -- Pitch, the full-service creative advertising agency based here announced today that President Rachel Spiegelman was recognized by key industry publications Advertising Age and Business Insider as an influential leader in marketing, media and advertising. Spiegelman was named to Advertising Age's prestigious 40 Under 40 list and was named #11 on Business Insider's 30 Most Creative Women in Advertising; both publications celebrated Spiegelman for making significant contributions to the industry within the last year.
"Ad Age's 40 Under 40 recognizes some of the smartest and most groundbreaking talent in marketing today," said Judann Pollack, Deputy Editor of Advertising Age. "The list is a global who's who of the brightest minds in agencies, marketing and media companies, talent agents, social media and more."
"We selected 30 of the most impressive women in advertising," wrote Business Insider's Lara O'Reilly.

Spiegelman was celebrated for spearheading Pitch's award winning Don't Donate to the Homeless campaign for the Weingart Center for the Homeless, overseeing "KING JR," a major global rebranding of Burger King's Kid's Meals, and for rolling out innovative campaigns for Pepsi's hotly anticipated premium cola drink "1893," Nestle Water's Arrowhead, Netflix's "Orange is the New Black," SunPower the leading solar panel manufacturer; the Waldorf Astoria Beverly Hills, and the first ever TV campaign for Bonefish Grill.
