McDonald’s Australia is on the lookout for a new CMO following the sudden departure of incumbent Jenni Dill.
Dill has been in the role since 2016 after she replaced Mark Lolback who went on to become GroupM CEO.
It is unclear what Dill’s next role will be.
Prior to her role at Macca’s, Dill was a senior marketing director at Pepsico. Dill currently sits on the Ad Standards board and the AANA board.
In a statement to B&T, a McDonald’s spokesperson said: “Jenni Dill has made the decision to pursue new career opportunities outside of McDonald’s.
“Over the last four years with Macca’s, Jenni has been instrumental in building a strong team of marketers, leading the creation of big communication platforms for the brand, driving focus on Macca’s iconic core products and enabling rapid digital acceleration.
“We thank Jenni for her contribution, enthusiasm and commitment to the McDonald’s business, and we wish her well in her future endeavours. A new chief marketing officer will be announced in due course.”
