London, 22nd May 2024 – BIMA is honoured to announce that Simon Gill has been inducted into the BIMA’s prestigious Hall of Fame.

Every year, the British Interactive Media Association honours members who have made significant contributions to the digital industry by inducting them into its Hall of Fame. The inductees join a prestigious list of individuals dating back to 2012.

This year, BIMA has chosen to honour Simon Gill, former BIMA President and EVP, Global Client Business Transformation at MRM//McCann. Having spent more than 20 years at the forefront of digital marketing, Simon was an award-winning creative professional with a PhD in Multimedia. Throughout his career, he delivered creative excellence for global brands including Apple, Cathay Pacific, EON, Honda, Lloyds Bank, Mattel, Microsoft, Selfridges and Sony.

Simon was also an active figure in the industry, serving on the BIMA Executive from 2015 and as an Executive Member of IADAS since 2014. He participated in multiple jury services, judging prestigious awards such as the BIMA Awards, Clio Awards, Creative Circle, Cresta, D&AD Awards, DMA Awards, IAB Creative Showcase, MAA Best Awards, New York Festivals, Lovie Awards, and Webby Awards. Simon was a valued member of the BIMA Creative Council and was recognised in the BIMA 100 in 2018 in the Creative Stars category.

Known for his dedication to digital excellence and commitment to nurturing industry talent, Simon’s mantra was “Hard on the work, kind to the people.” He was a mentor to so many and was passionate about supporting young talent in the industry.

Matt Sullivan, Managing Director of BIMA said: “I was lucky to have known Simon for 13 years throughout my career. He was always undoubtedly brilliant and talented, but humble and never afraid to have some fun – this side of him was infectious. While his tenure as BIMA President was short, his legacy and his ideas for the organisation to grow lives on. It felt inevitable that Simon would one day be inducted into our Hall of Fame, so it seems fitting that 2024 we recognise his amazing contribution to the industry but also as our friend.”

It is a profound honour for BIMA to induct Simon Gill into the Hall of Fame this year, ensuring that his passion and legacy live on to inspire future generations in the industry.
