“Kavelj, Smith Take the Top Jobs at UM Melbourne

UM Australia CEO Mat Baxter (pictured) has announced that Ivo Kavelj has been appointed managing director of UM Melbourne and Alex Smith has been appointed general manager of the agency.

Kavelj and Smith have been managing partners at UM Melbourne prior to these promotions and they will move to their new roles effective immediately.  Peter Butler, managing director of IPG Mediabrands Melbourne said the appointments were important leadership positions for the group that recognise the continuing expansion in the Melbourne operations.
