He will also help Australian brands with international distribution.

Both appointments signal the rapid expansion of brand new media, which owns, creates and operates digital channels for brands and broadcasters.

The opportunity for brands and publishers is exponential and I am delighted to be joining BNM, a true innovator and leader in the field.”

Hopkins has over 20 years’ media industry experience across Australian and global brands, starting his career in agencies with senior media buying and strategy roles at DDB, Leo Burnett’s and Clemenger before moving into advertising sales and marketing with management roles at Fairfax, Win Television, The Seven Network, Ministry of Sound London and the Ten Network.
