Several AdScamers have pointed me in the direction of BusinessInsider’s article… “The 37 richest people in advertising.” Yes, all the usual suspects are there, with “The Poisoned Dwarf,” in first place with $27 million, up from $11.6 million last year. Michael “I Know Insurance” Roth pulled in $9.7 million, down from $12.9 million the previous year. Yes folks, all those millions for nearly destroying Interpublic. And veteran globe trotter Kev “I Always Wear Black” Roberts took home (when he’s there) $4.5 million, up from $3.9 million the year before… Which isn’t to be sneezed at when you consider Saatchi is picking up the tab for all those first class flights, five star hotels, gourmet nosheries and rugby match tickets. So, in reality, it’s just fucking spending money. The last guy on the list gets a mere $545K working for Havas… Oh, and his dad owns Havas. Obviously, he worked his way up strictly on merit!
Some will even go on to second careers!
