I am really looking forward to leading the incredible team across Australia and New Zealand, who are already playing an integral role in shaping the current success and future positioning of the Dentsu Aegis Network, on a local and global level. I look forward to working closely with our agencies and leadership team to continue to drive business success for all our clients.”
With annual billings in excess of $2.5 billion, Dentsu Aegis Network is one of the most influential media groups in the region.
