Chief Innovation Officer Gregory Roekens will be joining this year’s DADI (The Drum Awards for the Digital Industries) Awards jury.

The DADIs, created by The Drum, recognise agencies and brands who are producing exciting and innovative digital work. From apps to consumer products, use of search to social media, paid media and VR, the DADIs have been recognising excellence for the past 12 years.

The judging process will be taking place online, where the jury will look for evidence of clear strategic thinking, creativity and innovation, and tangible results and outcomes. Joining the panel alongside Gregory will be key players in the industry, such as Emma Newell (Senior Commercial Director, Getty Images), Danilo Tauro (Global Director of Media, P&G), James Cross (Creative Director, BBC Creative), Olaf Gueldner (CMO, The Goodwood Group), Guan Hin Tay (CCO, BBDO Asia), Amy Williams (Founder & CEO, Good-Loop), Nick Farnhill (CEO, Publicis Poke), Kimberlee Wells (CEO, TBWA/Melbourne), and many more.
