The A List 2013: Will Meyer, The Black Tomato Agency

Will Meyer, 28, is account director at The Black Tomato Agency

Will worked in-house at Ralph Lauren, coordinating its outlet store events, moved to a prize incentives agency then joined Black Tomato just over two-and-a-half years ago.

Boss says: "Will managed the whole process for a Nissan event with absolute professionalism, ensuring that everyone involved had an exceptional experience and most importantly that Nissan received the highest possible return from their investment in the campaign," says Elliott Grant, head of client services at Black Tomato.

Career high: The Nissan 'Built to Thrill' event I ran last November, encompassing a number of different motor-sports that influenced Nissan's Juke car. Our solution was an adrenaline-fuelled seven-day itinerary in Morocco across the Agafay desert, two mountain ranges and eventually the Sahara.

Worst event moment: Trying to coordinate five coach-loads of prize winners through London rush hour traffic to a film premiere.

I wish I'd run: Burning Man Festival in Nevada.

Alternative career: Mountain guide.

Next step: To bring in some of the larger experiential style events and promotions to the agency.
