Once again Anna Chitty, CEO, PHD China has been recognised for her exemplary leadership. At last week’s International Professional Women’s Society (IPWS) Women Leadership Awards in Shanghai, Anna was named “Business Leader of the Year” across all industries.

These awards were presented at IPWS’s fourth annual summit, which brought together leaders and influencers from all over the world and across different industries to celebrate role models in Business, Innovation, Entrepreneurship, and Social Contribution.

With a guiding principle of building strong company culture, the agency has experienced unprecedented growth and business results since her taking on the role of China CEO in the last two years.

This award follows another recent recognition of Anna by Campaign Asia as their Women Leading Change Award winner of 2018.  A long-time advocate of doing things differently and ‘Finding a Better Way’,  these recognitions both in and outside the industry further validate all that she does for both the PHD and for clients.

Commenting on the win, Anna said: “I want to thank my fabulous team who support me every day, working tirelessly to help me carry out what I truly believe is the best way to run a successful business: and that’s building an inclusive and energetic culture through standing by what we truly believe in—for us that’s having the courage to stand up for what you believe in, collaborating with each other to create the biggest force, energizing the curiosity to uncover what’s new and what’s changing, coupled with a huge dose of creative spirit and openness to try new ideas and ways of doing things. And it’s by staying true to those values that we can challenge ourselves to reach higher and achieve more.”
