She is a proven performer and leader, with a diverse skill set and importantly a huge passion for the OMD brand. Aimee’s promotion caps off what has already been an outstanding year for OMD Australia. I am excited with where we are as a company, but even more excited to work with Aimee as she leads OMD into its next chapter.”

Mainardo De Nardis, OMD Global CEO, added, ”OMD is Australia’s leading agency, and I am not just talking about size. Our strengths in talent allow us to wish the very best to Horgs in his new role leading Omnicom Media Group across the Pacific region and to promote Aimee to run one of our best agencies in the world toward new successes. I wish Aimee the very best and together with Stephen Li, CEO OMD APAC, welcome her to our global management team.”

Buchanan commented, “I am thrilled to be appointed as the CEO of OMD Australia, to be leading an amazing team, working with Australia’s best brands at a time when media has never being more exciting or relevant. I am passionate about our ongoing focus on driving growth for our clients, from our people, always done with integrity.
