Inese Kingsmill, chair of the AANA, thanked Bain who she said was “instrumental” in crafting the organisation’s new strategic plan.

"This is an action year for the AANA, we are keen to freshen things up and provide clear and tangible member benefits,” she added.

“We are committed to inspiring and equipping marketers to build strong brands and businesses in an environment of rapid change. We want to promote and elevate innovative, responsible and respected marketing and the value it delivers in a business context.

“Given this brief, we are delighted Sunita is stepping in to the CEO role as she brings a unique set of skills which will help to grow the AANA into a new era."
