The Australian advertising industry’s social purpose organisation, UnLtd, has added four new directors to its Melbourne board.
Joining the board are John O’Brien, head of agency sales Melbourne at 10ViacomCBS; Sam Harris, Melbourne agency sales director at ARN; Sarah James, managing director at Initiative Media Melbourne, and Sue Franklin, EA/office manager at Mindshare.
Since the appointment of Tiffany Damm as the general manager of its Melbourne team in 2019, UnLtd has grown its presence in the Victorian market with the introduction of new events and corporate partnerships.
“Despite all the lockdowns and challenges of the last 12 months, the social impact generated by the Melbourne media, marketing and creative industry has grown considerably,” Damm said in a statement.
“It’s been fantastic to see the generosity of our industry grow, even during the tough times. We’ve got even bigger plans for this year and we are so excited to have John, Sam, Sarah and Sue join our Board to help us make an even bigger impact for children at risk.”
James said she had been a long-term supporter of UnLtd and is delighted to join the board.
“The positive difference that UnLtd and their charity partners make to children and young people at risk is so important, especially after the year we’ve all had.
“I’m thrilled to use my skillset on the Board to help them grow and continue their great work.”
The new appointment join the exisiting UnLtd Melbourne board of directors, including Jye Hainsworth from Google; Luke Burr and Rachel Page from Verizon Media; Shaun Warry from Taska Media; Simon Lawson from PHD, and Wade James from oOh! Media.
The next UnLtd event in Melbourne is the Big Clash cricket tournament on Thursday, 25 February at Fawkner Park.
Damm said: “We couldn’t be more excited to be able to bring the industry together again in real life after a year of lockdowns and restrictions.
“We’re inviting everyone in the industry to join us for a drink and to watch all the action this Thursday at Fawkner Park as we once again see who the industry cricket champions really are.
“It will be a fantastic (and of course COVID-safe) afternoon of cricket, laughter and healthy competition, all whilst raising funds for children at risk.”
