“Nicki is one of Australia’s most senior and respected marketers, and over the past two years she has changed the conversation that we have with our clients and partners.
“She believes in the power of creativity and big ideas and the importance of marketing as a lever for growth. She understands the language of the boardroom, and I know that under her leadership, Powered, our full-service creative powerhouse, will go to another level,”
