GRAD MEN S2E3: Jay Williams

This past year we saw Mad Men’s Roger Sterling publish a novel Sterling’s Gold. On our second GRAD MEN NYC tour, we met another ad man turned author: Jay Williams, Executive Vice President and ECD of Publicis NY. Jay is also the author of the book Soul For Sale, the story of creative director Terry Wilson and his challenges in balancing the world of advertising with his own personal life- as he struggles to produce great work, nail the pitch and deal with agency politics. It’s an engaging fun read, and Jay was nice enough to give us both copies which we read on the Bolt Bus back to Boston. A real stand-up guy who has built a big name for himself in both Boston and NYC, winning accolades from The One Show, CA, Andy’s, Webby’s, D&AD, Clio, Mercury and even an Emmy, the GRAD MEN team would like to thank Jay and Publicis for working with us.

And because we know most of you are broke students like us, you can order Soul For Sale for pretty cheap on Amazon. Tune in next week when we debut Episode 4 of Season Two with Keith Weaver, CD at Razorfish.
