NBA star Chris Paul will receive the inaugural Cultural Force Award, which honors someone not directly involved in the advertising business, but who has shaped the way the industry advertises, markets and engages with new audiences. Paul personifies this honor, said award co-chair Hayley Romer. “He’s been a pitchman, a video game collaborator, an outspoken advocate for racial equality … a unifying force for advertising,” Romer said.
Induction ceremonies will take place Nov. 16 at The Lighthouse at Chelsea Piers in New York City.
“It is only appropriate that we now honor these individuals under the spotlight of the evening lights,” said Steve Pacheco, AFF’s CEO and president.
