Lamb is the second client partner to join Initiative, a new position created by national CEO Lee Leggett. The first, announced last week, was Damien Terakes who is previously general manager at Razor.

“Andrew carries a high level of respect in the industry,” said Leggett. “Among the marketing community and media owners he is known for building strong relationships with clients and as a team leader.  He is the calibre of executive I am focused on bringing into the Initiative team and I am looking forward to working with him.”

Lamb said, “I am thrilled to be working with Lee and the team at Initiative. It is a great agency with a fantastic culture, vision and client portfolio. The icing on the cake is to also be part of the country’s strongest and most successful communications network – IPG Mediabrands. I can’t wait to start”

He joins Initiative on August 11 and will be based in the Sydney office, reporting to Leggett.
