“Darren is one of the most respected media executives in Australia. His industry knowledge and extensive contacts will be a significant addition to our already experienced and growth-focused team.”

Commenting on his new role, Anderson said: “I am looking forward to joining the Drive Network and leading what is already an experienced and committed team.

“For me, the opportunity to work in a business with growth opportunities is most attractive. The platform that the Drive Network has developed makes it perfectly positioned to be the next major player in the Australian digital market.”
