Global digital marketing and technology agency Valtech has announced the appointment of Andrew Davenport as the new Managing Director of Valtech Australia, in a major coup for the company’s local operations.
Davenport is the highly regarded former Managing Director of The White Agency (latterly WhiteGREY) and brings with him more than a decade of proven success in managing pure play digital businesses, as well as a wealth of strategic marketing and business experience across Europe and Asia Pacific.
Joining Valtech’s APAC management team, Andrew is charged with driving the Valtech global offer in the Australian market with the aim of replicating the company’s global success and business growth, which has seen it expand across five continents in 25 years.
“Valtech is a global organisation with offices in 16 countries and an impressive client list of many of the world’s leading brands so the opportunity to come on board to lead the Australian operations was a no-brainer,” said Andrew Davenport.
“The company has achieved incredible success in other markets and I’m looking forward to the challenge of driving the Australian operations forward and being a major contributor to this overall success.”
With expertise in technology, marketing and experience design, Valtech addresses transformational business challenges for clients, from consulting through to service design, optimisation and multi-channel platform roll-outs.
Valtech’s global client list includes L’Oreal, Louis Vuitton, Audi, BMW, Heineken and Phillips, while locally clients include TAL, Ruralco and Foxtel.
“There are not many operators out there with the same level of experience and understanding of the digital market as Andrew, so securing him as our new Australian MD is a major win for Valtech,” said Henri Petitet, Regional Director of Valtech APAC.
“His appointment certainly bolsters our capabilities in Australia as we look to grow our footprint in the Asia Pacific region.”
