Disruptor Rocks Creative Industry: Liz Yam, Co-Founder Keithcity Group
Digital strategist and executive helps brands to stay on top.
Liz Yam knows what it's like to be the "only one" in a room. As a Chinese American digital strategist and creative executive, she has often been the only person of color, the only woman, and the youngest person sitting at predominantly male tables.
"I don't doubt that sometimes people thought I was my CEO's assistant," she said.
However, biases soon dissipated as Yam's creative prowess and ability to supply fresh ideas helped move companies like the Peter Arnell Agency forward.
