Massive media network GroupM has appointed Jeff Hunt as its new chief financial officer (CFO).

A seasoned finance leader with over 20 years’ experience in accounting and finance, Hunt was most recently based in Hong Kong as Senior Vice President & CFO, Asia Pacific & Japan for international software company CA Technologies. In that role, he was highly involved in business and strategic planning, acquisitions and business transformation activities across Asia Pacific and Japan.

In his new role, Hunt (pictured below) will work closely with the CFOs of all GroupM companies and with the new chief executive officer, once appointed, following the announcement of John Steedman’s resignation.


GroupM Australia Chairman & CEO John Steedman said: “Jeff is a highly motivated, results-oriented and commercially savvy finance leader with significant amount of experience on the financial front in Australia, Asia Pacific and North America. His broad leadership experience will be a strong complement to our agency CFOs and we are pleased to have him on board.”

Hunt added: “I am excited to be joining GroupM, Australia’s leading media agency group, at this pivotal time of great opportunity within the media industry. I look forward to working in partnership with the agencies’ CFOs to drive future business growth.”
