King brings a diversity of cross-disciplinary experience from leadership roles in media, creative, communications and PR agencies, including building the Sydney practice of Thinkerbell.

King will be charged with expanding the agency’s strategic capabilities to drive new and innovative partnerships with clients that meet the dynamic opportunities of today’s cultural and commercial landscape.

Leo Burnett CEO, Emma Montgomery (right in main photo), said: “Cath and I met six years ago, and I’ve been wanting to work together ever since. Her unique ability to look at problems from a number of vantage points gives us the adaptability and flexibility that modern strategy needs, and will help open up new avenues for our clients. Together with the wider strategy crew, this is going to be a formidable team.”

King added: “Leo Burnett has undeniable consistency when it comes to impact, character and calibre over the course of time. Partnering with Emma and the team to build the next evolution of our strategic product for our clients is something I can’t wait to get started on.”
