"Bob Isherwood embodies a professional and personal tradition of creative leadership, integrity and dedication to great ideas that make a difference," said Clio Awards executive director Ami Brophy. "The Clio jury members experienced this first-hand when Bob was executive chairman of the 2004 Clio Television/Film jury when he served as a true inspiration to the entire panel. Bob remains a passionate advocate for the ad industry as a whole and clearly reflects the essence of the Lifetime Achievement Award as someone at the ever-changing vanguard."

"We struggle through life for recognition," said Isherwood. "Recognition for who we are. Recognition for our ideas. Recognition for our clients. I'm truly honored to receive this recognition from Clio, particularly when I was assured it was the ongoing Lifetime Achievement Award. Apparently former honorees have also insisted on this."



With an advertising career spanning more than three decades, New York-based Isherwood's work has been documented and endorsed by the industry's most prestigious organizations. He has been recognized by the Clio Hall of Fame, named Australia's leading creative director, won Australia's first Gold Lion for Cinema at the Cannes International Advertising Festival, and is among the few people to have won the British Design and Art Directors Gold award for Advertising, informs an official release.

His previous background included six years as a creative group head for Young & Rubicam London, and 10 years with Collett Dickenson Pearce & Partners, which at that time was often regarded as the world's most creative advertising agency. In 1982, he returned to Australia to become a founding partner of the Campaign Palace Sydney.

Isherwood joined Saatchi & Saatchi in 1986. He was appointed creative director in 1988, chairman of the Worldwide Creative Board in 1995, and worldwide creative director in 1996.

The panel of judges include Buzz Aldrin, Edward de Bono, David Byrne, Brian Eno, Danny Hillis, Baz Luhrmann, John Maeda, Lou Reed and others.
