Susie Henry, an icon of the local advertising industry, has celebrated her 30 years at Leo Burnett.
Todd Sampson, CEO Leo Burnett Australia, said: “I adore Susie, she is one of the most unique people I have ever met and we are all so lucky to have her. There is no one better to represent our culture than Susie.”
Joining the agency in 1985 as the assistant to the CEO, Susie held the position for many years working for various leaders in advertising before moving to become the face of Leo’s at reception.
“My happiness is greeting people, making them feel welcome and relaxed. If there is a secret, it’s being genuine. I enjoy what I do, and I think that shows,” she said.
Famous for her welcoming smile, over the top fashion – always with major jewelry and bling – along with her wicked sense of humour, Susie is the heartbeat of the agency.
“I just love working at Leo Burnett. Mostly I try to make coming into this agency a pleasure for all who do – and that includes staff, clients and delivery boys.”
