Sue Squillace has been appointed CEO of Carat Australia and New Zealand (ANZ).

Squillace joins Carat from Spark Foundry where she has been CEO since 2017.

The appointment of Squillace follows months of turbulence for Carat’s holding group Dentsu Aegis Network (DAN).

This includes media accounts moving out of Carat, Vizeum and Dentsu X, executive redundancies and restructuring across DAN.

In September last year, Carat internally promoted Simon Williams to the role of national MD, instead of filling the role CEO left open after Paul Brooks exited the agency.

Williams took over the leadership of Carat ANZ, with a DAN spokesperson confirming at the time the CEO role would not be filled. 

As the new Carat ANZ CEO, Squillace will report to Henry Tajer, DAN ANZ CEO, and represent Carat on the DAN ANZ Board.

She will commence in September this year, joining Carat with over 20 years’ experience and deep expertise in media and marketing.

DAN ANZ CEO Henry Tajer said: “Sue is a fantastic person. I can’t wait to see her make her impact at Carat and DAN. I am really excited to be working with her again.

“This is an important appointment for not only Carat but the wider Network. Sue’s credibility and commitment to putting people at the centre of everything, makes her the ideal person to propel Carat into the future.”

On her departure from Spark Foundry, Publicis Media ANZ chairman John Preston said: “We would like to thank Sue for her leadership and commitment to the business, having dedicated more than a decade of her career at the company.

“We wish Sue the absolute best that life has to offer as she embarks on her next journey.”

Squillace said: “I am excited to lead the team at Carat and join Dentsu Aegis Network at such a critical and exciting time.

“I look forward to getting to know and working together with the team, clients and partners on the next stage of the Carat journey.

“I would also like to thank Publicis Groupe for the many opportunities over the last ten years, in particular the opportunity to launch and build a new agency. I wish all my friends at Spark Foundry continued success.”
