“In the last three months we have been working with the flagship brands within Dentsu Aegis Network on our programmatic roadmap and the central role that it will play on delivering our 2020 ambitions. Having the right talent to lead our group’s programmatic vision was critical, and we have that in Indy.
“It is not just his proven and experienced background but his ambition, passion and charisma that are the qualities that make him stand out from his peers. Given the importance of this role we took our time ensuring that we had alignment on our vision. Indy is the ideal candidate to lead Amnet into an exciting new period for Dentsu Aegis Network, with the full support of the global team to deliver what is required for our clients across ANZ.”

I’m focused on leading Amnet throughout Australia and New Zealand at this exciting time in digital.”
