Professional social media network LinkedIn has announced the 2015 Power Profiles in Australia. The list reveals the most viewed member profiles of CEOs and leaders across industries such as Technology, Financial Services, Internet, Human Resources and a separate CEO list.

This year, LinkedIn Power Profiles include CEOs and leaders from some of Australia’s most recognisable brands alongside successful startups.

Cliff Rosenberg, managing director, Australia, New Zealand and South East Asia for LinkedIn said, “Investing in developing one’s professional brand is now vital for business success. Besides garnering the highest profile views on LinkedIn, what’s common among these Power Profiles is they are adding value to the community and want to influence change by voicing their opinions on topics that they are passionate about.”

The most viewed marketing and advertising professionals in Australia include:

  • Andy Lark, CMO, Xero
  • Karen Ganschow, General Manager, Customer Relationship Marketing & Digital at Westpac
  • Jaimes Leggett, CEO, M&C Saatchi Group
  • Jon Holloway, VP Managing Director, R/GA Australia
  • Amanda Rose, Founder, The Business Woman Media & Western Sydney Women

The complete list of LinkedIn Power Profiles in Australia is available here.

  • Share your work: Whether via photos, videos or SlideShare presentations, share examples of your work on your profile to help showcase your skills.
  • Nurture your network: Our Power Profiles also give back to the community in various ways. Some actively publish on LinkedIn, others share compelling articles, focus on skilled volunteer work, or invest time in mentoring students. Find your passion and go for it.
