The Woman Behind the Real “Mad Men”

With the Mad Men series ending, it’s appropriate Ad Age chose to do this short video about Judy Wald, the recruiter who placed Madison Avenue’s hottest names like Gene Case, Jerry Della Femina, Ron Rosenfeld, and a Rolodex full of others.

Of her business acumen, former CD at Ogilvy & Mather Jane Maas said, “When Judy would move one creative director from one big agency to another, there would be a domino effect felt throughout the world of advertising.”

It’s a fresh look at how how the real world of Mad Men operated. And maybe an opportunity for someone to pitch AMC on the follow up series: “Better Call Judy.”
