Our president and owner, Christy Hiler, has been named among Ad Age’s Leading Women 2023—and frankly, this award has been a long time coming.

You see, when Christy first arrived at Cornett, she planned on using it as a stepping stone for her career. She planned on joining a bigger agency like she’d always envisioned, but then something beautiful happened. Christy began to feel like she could build something at Cornett, and that she did.

To see what Christy has accomplished since taking ownership of Cornett is nothing short of incredible.This nomination is a testament to her visionary leadership, boundless ambition, and unwavering passion for propelling our industry forward.

This is what she had to say after receiving the news: “The thing I am most excited about being on this list is the opportunity to gather with and celebrate all of these extraordinary women. Brian Bonilla and Ad Age thank you for this incredible honor.”
