“Mel has been with Generate since it was launched in August 2013 and has become a key member of the Network Ten team,” Ms Barrett said. “She has a great ability to understand a client’s business needs and strategic imperatives, then develop smart, creative solutions that deliver fantastic results.
“Generate has been an outstanding success for Network Ten’s clients, giving them innovative and effective approaches to content creation, sponsorships, activations, talent engagement, experiential marketing, and insights and data – across any screen and any platform.
