Ad Council Chairman David Fischer

David Fischer, Chief Revenue Officer of Facebook, has been named Chair of the Ad Council's Board of Directors. Ad Council is a non-profit organization that creates innovative social good campaigns to address many of the nation's most important causes. Fischer succeeds Linda Boff, Chief Marketing Officer of GE, and will serve in the role for one year.

During his nearly 10-year tenure at Facebook, Fischer has spearheaded the company's rapidly growing advertising business while managing its Sales and Marketing teams worldwide. He was recently elevated to Chief Revenue Officer in a promotion that was spotted in a SEC filing that largely went unnoticed at the time. Under his leadership, Facebook has become an instrumental force in extending the reach and impact of Ad Council campaigns.

The Ad Council Board consists of accomplished senior executives from media and technology companies, advertisers, and agencies (advertising, public relations, digital and social). As Chair, Fischer will work in collaboration with the Executive Committee, the governing body of the Ad Council's Board, and Ad Council leadership to further the organization's mission to use the power of communications to address more than 30 critical social issues. He will also manage and advise on business affairs and chair the Ad Council's 2019 Annual Public Service Award Dinner, the organization's largest annual fundraising event that will be held on December 5, 2019 at the New York Hilton.
