Leo Burnett Sydney’s Front Of House Susie Henry Celebrates 35 Years As An Agency Icon

Leo Burnett Sydney’s Front of House, Susie Henry, celebrated 35 years with the agency in February this year. In recognition of her outstanding tenure, a few talented Burnetters (both past and present) created a short film, ‘Don’t Be Ridiculous’, to celebrate her unique story.

Susie joined Leo Burnett in 1985 and, over the years, was the Personal Assistant to the CEO, the Chairman and the CFO, before taking on the significant role of Front of House, which she has been doing in style for the past 11 years.

Melinda Geertz, CEO of Leo Burnett Australia, says: “I’ve known Susie since the day I arrived in Australia, and she’s truly one-of-a-kind. Susie is passionate, insightful, loyal, kind and wildly creative – she’s synonymous with Leo Burnett.”

“It’s an unusual time, and it felt right to share this joyful celebration of Susie’s career as she’s had such an immense impact on all who have come to know her over the years.”

Susie Henry is very much looking forward to returning to work to be with her Leo’s family as soon as possible.

    1. Oh what a legend. I have memories of the great Susie Henry when I was a child and my mum was a creative back in the late 1960’s or early 1970’s. Eek. She was one of the wild and wonderful pack of women that I aspired to be like. Sexy, sassy and nothing held back.

    2. Terrific………..couldnt stop the smile spreading the further i got into it…..and dont know any of the characters :). Great little vid.

    3. I’ve never met Susie but this is brilliant! Well done Leo Burnett!
