Dentsu has announced the appointment of Paul Koppelman as chief financial officer for Australia and New Zealand.
He joins dentsu at a pivotal time, where the network has been undertaking a number of changes over the last year to simplify its business and optimise its brands in market as part of its long-term growth strategy.
With more than 20 years’ experience, Koppelman joins dentsu from Nine Entertainment where he was previously Chief Financial Officer. Prior to Nine, he held Chief Financial Officer roles with Aconex, Medibank, AXA, and BHP, and has had a career spanning Australia, London, and The Netherlands.
Angela Tangas, dentsu ANZ chief executive officer, commented: “We are very pleased to have Paul join our team, in what is an important hire for dentsu ANZ. With an impressive career to date, Paul will play a vital role in helping us continue to build on the great momentum we gained in 2020 and into our next phase of growth.”
Koppelman will be replacing Jerome Whelan, who has moved into a regional finance role to support dentsu’s APAC business and operations teams. Koppelman commenced in the role Monday 1 February and will form part of dentsu ANZ’s executive team, reporting into Angela Tangas.
