"It's an honor to be included, and I'm excited to participate with the Board," said Gilleo. "It speaks to the level of recognition that LEAP has achieved amongst our peers. From a personal perspective, the judging process is always an enjoyable experience. It's interesting to see what new trends and ideas are on the rise and how the advertising industry is addressing and learning from those changes."
