Facebook’s David Fischer appointed Ad Council Chair
Facebook's David Fischer has been selected to serve as chair of the Ad Council’s Board of Directors.
For the next 12 months, Fischer will work in collaboration with the executive committee, the governing body of the Ad Council’s Board, and Ad Council leadership. He will also manage and advise on business affairs and chair the Ad Council’s 2019 Annual Public Service Award Dinner, which is the organisation’s largest annual fundraiser, to be held on December 5 at the New York Hilton.
Fischer originally became a member of the executive committee in 2012. He previously served as vice chair, so his elevation is along expected grounds.
Fischer's board membership has enhanced Facebook's involvement with the Ad Council over the past few years. In addition to donating significant media to support Ad Council campaigns, Facebook has provided creative production through Facebook’s Creative Shop, measurement studies, and has leveraged new technologies and ad products to drive greater impact on the Ad Council’s social communications.
