LIZH A List Contenders

We at LIZH have carefully selected some talented industry individuals to be interviewed by a Campaign journalist to discuss their career progress up to this point as we believe they are potentially one step away from 'the pinnacle'. The articles have been written in partnership with Campaign and feature as part of their wider A-List editorial. Look out for 3-4 featured individuals per year.

<h3>David Kolbusz</h3><p>It's intriguing to speculate what might have been had Matt Boffey and David Kolbusz - chosen by the headhunter LIZH as the most likely contenders for next year's A-List - ever merged their talents into a "dream team".

Hardly lacking the experience for it, having set up his own boutique web agency, 64k, in the early days of the internet (when dial-up was cutting edge technology and Mark Zuckerberg just a school boy), and worked for some of the biggest names in advertising, he still believes heís spent most of his career on the periphery of the industry. To become a central part of it now feels unusual.

<h3>Gareth Goodall</h3><p>Gareth Goodall began his advertising career in 1999, when he was invited to join the Ogilvy and Mather graduate scheme. It was a great place to start, he says - and along the way, he made some lifelong friends, "survived two Argos Christmases" [the retailer was then an agency client] and helped give birth to Lucky the Dog, the canine face of More Than.

<h3>Ben Mooge</h3><p>The genesis of Ben Mooge's career in advertising is a classic case of being at absolutely the right place at the right time. He'd been studying English and American Literature at Manchester University and his future options seemed to be narrowing down to journalism on the one hand or teaching on the other.
